Night in the Park

Last night I took my evening run to the park and I think it was my last mid-distance outdoor post-work run there for a while unless I get a better headlamp and bring a dog. There were plenty of people so I felt completely safe, but I did catch myself sprinting through the shadowy tree portion of the loop on my last lap. It felt very Halloweeny.

There is a mountain in the distance out there, I swear. It was a really nice night, mid-50s and just some wind coming off the north end of the park off the water. I was a little sapped of energy from work during the first few miles but my fear of the dark and small animal noises got me through the last half.

Thank goodness it's Thursday. I am absolutely ready for this weekend and some sleep. I have been feeling borderline with my immune system lately with everyone at work getting very sick, me not sleeping enough, and not getting enough green vegetables. I did have a weaksauce and very over priced salad for lunch to try and get some veggies today but I think I am in need of a serious broccoli session. I feel like it's my superfood yet it has been replaced with the kit-kats that are too accessible at work lately. I've managed to power through my runs the last week but I think they would be much better if I was running on some better food. 

What are your plans for the weekend?

What's your power food?
