I ended up convincing myself to stop at the canal on my way home since I already had my clothes with me. The first mile was actually really relaxing and I wasn't so grumpy anymore. I also peed in the woods for the first time ever (there's no such thing as TMI anymore). I feel like a real runner now. I was ready to be dunzo by the time mile 3 clicked on my watch and was a-okay with it. I was happy that I at least got out there!
Also, this happened last night:
An impulsive purchase of a discounted race registration coupon, and the subsequent registration for another half marathon. I haven't even ran my first one yet and I'm already registering for another one? Let's hope this was a good decision!
