It's actually quite fitting, becuause for whatever reason I felt super awesome on my run this morning. My typical pre work solid run is an 8 mile out and back from my house. Today, I took a detour with the intention of getting to 8 and then walking a few blocks back home. I felt pretty good, and thought I may as well run the extra distance to make it an 8.5. Still feeling awesome with plenty of time, I extended it to a 9 mile run and would have been happy to keep going if it weren't for the whole getting ready for work thing.
