|This is me after an awesome run.|
Total relief. Because I was going a LITTLE.BIT.CRAZY.
Remember yesterday's post about regular running in Cairo? It would make anyone crazy.
But today? I felt the sun on my shoulders, found my pace, my breath pattern, my stride. I didn't have to worry about getting run over by cars and didn't get a single stink eye. Not one.
The fab hubby even, begrudgingly, said he'd feel ok with me running there alone (although he really preferred I'd find a partner). And I know someone who was thinking about training for a 1/2 Marathon in January. In any case, my intent is to hit the Wadi at least once a week for my sanity run. Maybe twice. Otherwise, I'm thinking I'm going to get up early before work so I can avoid the traffic and pound out a few extra miles each week.
I'm still vigilant, but maybe less weary? A good run will do that for you.
|Really beautiful terrain.|
|So if you're a fan of Star Wars...|
we were totally prepped for a Jawa caravan to be
attacked by the Sand People.
|Found a Chili's for lunch afterward.|
Chips and Salsa EXACTLY LIKE THE U.S.
Perfect! (P.S. found a different Starbucks.
And it was also AWESOME!)
