Day 6 - A good day for a double

Monday is back to work day most Mondays.  Today I was there for an hour and decided to take the rest of the day off and the boss was cool with it. My wife and I then got an early start on some shopping.  You know Target, Dick's Sporting Goods, Michaels Crafts, Toys-R-Us and Walmart.  We finished a lot of our Christmas shopping and I even purchased a Under Armour Tactical HeatGear Hood for myself at Dick's Sporting Goods.

After we got home I got my stuff ready for my run and left around 2:30. Up to Pulpit Rock I went and the snow flurries were falling again. On my way up I passed a couple guys that were out rock climbing near the reservoir.  I went up the road hill to the top and my legs felt good. Some times I go up the AT but not when they are hunting.  I got some pics and took the road back down and headed down Mountain Road with a real nice head wind. The Tactical HeadGear Hood and my hat worked great on this section for keeping the wind out of my ears.

after leaving Pulpit Rock.

I ran around town for a little and then went over to Kaercher Creek to do the loop in the woods.  Only saw one person walking in a distance.  Not to many people outside today.

It was around 9 and it was still snowing outside and I felt like a kid itching to go out and play - so I did.  It was around 9:15 when I left the house for my second run of the day. I did one of my loops around town that is up, down and all around. No falls on the slick roads just a lot of fun. No one told me you can't run more the one time a day.  In this game of running sometimes you just have to make your own rules.  That is why I love this sport.  One day you can run a couple of miles and other days you can just run on forever.

12-6-2010 - 14.25 miles - 2:30 - run #1
12-6-2010 - 7 miles - 1:00 - run #2

Total = 21.25 miles - 3:30 hours
