I love the smell of freshly cut grass. Living in the city it's not a smell I get to enjoy often but today I did! The maintenance crew was out in full force this morning/early afternoon cutting the grass in all the parks I run by. I wore my Run Happy shirt and was definitely feeling happy on my last "long" run before next weeks marathon!!! There were a lot of interesting people out enjoying the day which makes for excellent people watching (and the helps the time pass by even quicker). The ankle pain was more of an annoyance today and less of a concern so that helped the happy thoughts too! I ended up running today instead of this weekend as we are making a trip back to central Illinois to visit his parents in a few hours. Although they have a nice running path down there everyone makes me feel guilty when I leave for an hour or two (even though we don't do anything other than watch tv!) I don't mind it ended up being a fantastic morning for a run!
