I woke up at 5:30 for my morning run because I planned on going to Universal when it opened. My plan called for an easy six miles. When I left there was a light drizzle and it was still dark out. I thought about just running to the gym and doing the workout there because I didn’t want to be three miles from home when it started pouring, but I decided against it because of the thought of the treadmill. Fortunately it didn’t start pouring and I got to enjoy my first run in the rain!
A little before mile two I came across four horses on the other side of a fence right near the sidewalk. One of them came really close and I reached out and pet him and took a couple pictures, but it was too dark to see anything. I believe they were hungry because they started following me along the fence as I walked away. The rest of the run was uneventful as the horses were gone by the time I ran back by on my way home. I completed the six miles in 57:47 giving me a nice easy pace of 9:37. I felt good after my run and it was a great way to start my early morning!
