Training has officially started and, I have to say, San Fran is
probably the best place I could have asked for to begin this journey. I had forgotten how beautiful it is here and how cool it can be - perfect for a good run! As you can see from the picture (courtesy of my camera phone - sorry!), today is cloudless and just perfect. I got in a 3 mile run today and decided that instead of running about 1.5 miles out and coming back, I'd run 3 miles out and enjoy the day a little more with a 3 mile walk back. It was amazing and I wish I had more time to run out here. The Atlanta heat on Thursday morning won't be fun. I'm hoping for two more 3 mile runs this week (Thursday and Friday) and then my long run on Sunday - probably 6 or 7 miles.
Anyway, it's back to Atlanta for me tomorrow morning and then a belated birthday dinner with a few friends. Tonight I'm meeting up with my cousin Danielle, so it will be great to catch up with her!
Thanks to everyone that wished me a happy birthday today! It's been a pretty great day! It would be nice to celebrate with everyone in Atlanta today, but it really has been a great one and I feel really good about this year (although I feel really good about every year I think).
