Today's run

Headed down to the Embarcadero just after 10 a.m. Sunny and near 60 degrees so I wore a T-shirt and shorts. There were so many people out and about in Chinatown that I double-checked the date to confirm that it was a weekday morning.

Launched off at the Ferry Building toward North Point, keeping the pace under control. Felt stronger as I ran. Halfway through I peeled off my shirt, glad I'd donned a more colorful sports bra than usual. Made a wide turn at the Willie Mays statue and thundered back toward the Bay Bridge. The finish came up faster than I expected. Looked at my watch: 57 minutes, for an 11.4 min/mile pace, my best so far for this course. Not as fast as my Lake Merritt running days, but definitely a noticeable improvement.

Caught the cable car home, phoned boyziggy and was delighted to have breakfast of tea and cinnamon-apple oatmeal waiting for me. His love and support means everything to me.

Running is so much easier without those extra pounds of flab. Though now I want to buy a whole new wardrobe, and can't afford to :-( Even my underwear are falling off me!
