Hills Surround Me


I have a confession to make. I did not run on National Running Day. Shocker. I needed a day of travel recovery to unpack and relax, not to mention the humidity was really bad on Wednesday. What a warm welcome back to the East coast (pun intended)!

I did run yesterday though and although it was hilly running along the California coast, I realized that my very own neighborhood in Virginia is also a killer. I went out in the evening, luckily it was a little cooler, and did a large loop around my neighborhood. Amazing to think that after a few months of marathon training I will barely feel these hills but last night I did. I slept hard and feel well rested this morning. Nothing like a solid run to help you sleep like a baby. Tomorrow I am running a 5K, my first in a long time. I’m looking forward to a much shorter race for a change!

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
