Runner's High

My six miler on Sunday went wonderfully. It felt good to be out there. I finished well below my target time.

I have forgotten how great you feel after doing a long run.

After the run, I took a nice long shower, got dressed and met my sister for lunch. I felt happy, energetic, powerful, and even a little sexy. The beer at lunch couldn't have tasted better, the sky couldn't have been bluer, the world simply could not have felt any better.

I was in my element.

How did I forget this?

In other news OSS week 3 results:
Weight 127.4 (2.6 lbs loss)
Fat % 22.2 (-.8% loss)

I like the "after" part too. Fresh, clean, perfumed, hungry... It's the getting there I feel like skipping sometimes.
