A Serendipitous Run

BD and the Puff both had Veteran's Day off today so he picked her up right after school Tuesday and took her to his house to spend the night. I was footloose and fancy-free for a WHOLE evening/night/morning! Wahoo! I changed my clothes and hit the clubs til 2am went out for a run. 
I almost didn't go. I made the mistake of turning on the TV and as I was flipping through the channels I had an entire convo in my head about how I could run tomorrow morning, or the next day or the next instead ofright now.... In the end, it was the terrible (for me) TV prime time lineup that really motivated me to get out of the house. And it wasn't too shabby! 
 
I did a Great Job? Thanks RunKeeper! 4 miles slow plus 5x 20 second strides w 2 minute slow jogs in between strides. Total of 4.72. 

And how about this for a happy accident? I changed up my out-and-back route a little bit yesterday to accommodate for those 5x strides. The EXACT end of my run left me standing on a street corner near my house where these food trucks were all parked! 
AND I had a $20 stashed in my pants! I always forget to carry money with me but not last night. I bee-lined it for the Cousins Maine Lobster truck, handed them my sweaty money. waited impatiently for my lobster bisque and then ate it up like no one was watching (i.e. no spoon required)! So yum!
