Notes to Self
- I felt so brave heading out to a nearby unknown park with a directions on a slip of paper, sight-unseen. I was easily out of my mind but it was incredibly enjoyable. Thank you, Google Maps!
- I'm not buying any more black workout clothes: My husband made a good point about wearing bright clothes and reflector tape on myself while running. I was on a major road and it was PITCH BLACK outside; I have never felt so close to being road kill!
- At the end of this park driveway toward the exit, I felt like I was jogging the road away from Forrest Gump's house, lined with trees and gravel. "Run, Forrest, Run!" It was stunning... beautiful.
