The Green Girl went for her first run of 2011 this evening.
I decided to start off the year with some hill work so I headed over to Signal Hill.
After an unusually intense day at work, it felt really good to get out and feel the crisp air fill my lungs as I hit the pavement.
From the top of Signal Hill, I paused to catch my breath and I took the opportunity to look out over the city.
It was one of those runs where I felt like I was flying but when I looked down at Mr. Green Garmin, he told me I was doing a 16 minute mile. Instead of pushing myself, I just disregarded the disconnect and enjoyed my run.
It was a beautiful night and the perfect way to start off the New Year.
