Pitter Patter of my running feet

I came home on Friday and decided that I must run..must run because in two week I have my second half marathon in Kentucky.  Normally I am pretty tired from work (I know I only worked 4 days this week, but still tiring).  But I came home and it was a beautiful afternoon, so I decided to lace up the running shoes and head out.  I put some music on and headed out the door.  I think I grabbed my old headphones because all I was getting was the background singers singing..which is pretty annoying.  So when I ran past the house I ditched the tunes and just ran to the music of my own two feet.
 I didn't run that far..just a few miles but it was a great afternoon for a run.  I loved hearing my own feet hit the pavement and watching the kids in the 'hood out running around.  My last mile I stopped and picked up Riley.  He's ten years old but still loves a good "run".  Now to be fair I don't think he really runs that much when I run..I may be a bit slow for him.  So we both got to enjoy the beautiful afternoon.

After the run I headed out to see my friend's boyfriend's blues band.  It was the perfect ending to a perfect day.
