Running Dream

I was hoping to get another good running start on my running this week.  Monday, I waited out the rain (twice) and left at 2:45PM to go run in Ryan Park.  I pulled into the parking lot, saw standing water on the trails, felt the return of the hot and humid weather, and couldn't pull the trigger.  I did get a particularly delicious coffee however.  Honestly, my body was very sore from bodyboarding Saturday night, and I wasn't upset at resting it. 

Before I awoke this morning, I had a running dream.  It was some sort of indoor race - 2.5 miles of stairs up and then back down.  I was racing with my son on my shoulders, but  I was passing people left and right.  Then I passed my brother Greg (this was definitely a dream!).  I kept waiting for him to pass me again, especially going back down, but I held him off for the win.  It seemed fishy to me, but he insisted he was giving it his all.  So we raced two more times and I won them both.  He told me I was better at running stairs than him.  My first win!  I then woke up (early) and decided to go for a run.  I was out the door at 5:47 and enjoyed a nice 4.5 mile hilly run. 


  1. See you at the Empire State Building Stair Climb!! You'll probably kick my butt.

  2. Body sore from body boarding! I'm jealous. Hopefully the waves hold up for Thursday and Friday!

  3. Jason reported HUGE waves at Misquamicut last night. They should stick around for a while.
