And so it is Sunday, which means LONG run day!!!! 10 miles were on the books and that is exactly what I ran...... met up with a group of motivating runners in town. It was an early wake up call because the others are training for a FULL marathon at the end of November. SO, I was in my car by 4:06 am!!!!!
Weather was a bit warmer than last Sunday, but still cool.... us here in the South enjoy the cooler mornings!!! By noon, it will be in the 80s!
Stopped at a gas station on the way and when I got back in my car, Downtown by Macklemore was playing!!! This is an AWESOME song! Great beat and so funny! Literally a song about mopeds! LOL! WARNING though, you will want to listen to the clean version that is played on the radio... the other version does drop the "F" word quite a bit.... definitely can't listen to that when my son is around! Oh, and the video is HILARIOUS! Anyway, this song got me pumped up!
The cool thing about starting at 5:30am is that you feel like you OWN the streets you drive daily. For local folks, this is Baytree Rd in Valdosta... literally, one can run down in the middle of the street!!!! Kinda cool! Or I am just really a dork! LOL! :D
On way home, snapped this picture.... it is a banner advertising the 5k that I am chairing this year, it is for my son's school!! It takes place NEXT week!!! EEEEK!!!!! It seems everything is coming together..... hopefully, it will! I have some AWESOME people helping me out to make this event a success! Fingers-crossed and everyone will have fun! Looks like there will be 250+ runners between the 5k and one mile!!!!

Did you run today? Do tell.........
Any particular songs you have recently added to your playlist? Do share! Always looking to add songs.... I don't run with music except on the treadmill, but due to life.... treadmill runs are 3 a week!
