At about 4 1/2 miles, two road bikers that I see there all of the time rode past and one says "Ay, que fuerza". To my credit, I was feeling full of energy and was running really well, especially for 4+ miles in. In the first three miles, I kept thinking 'I better slow down if I want to make it all the way around', but I just didn't feel like it. I'm glad to be back.
On a soapy note: I have pictures of my first big batch that I will write about later tonight, it just takes forever to upload pictures and I just couldn't wait to brag about my awesome run. Plus, my oils are melted and I think it's time to mix and pour. I'm currently making a big ol' batch of Mint Meditation.
