It felt good to go running tonight. For a lot of reasons.

It felt good to be running at all — my last run was last Saturday.
It felt good to be running in my neighborhood again.
It felt good to be running on asphalt, grass, trail instead of a treadmill.
It felt good to power up the hills.
It felt good to coast along the top of the bluff and see the city lights.
It felt good to have wind and trees around me.
It felt good to have the silver full moon shining down on me as I ran.
It felt good to be able to do the full 3.5+ mile loop without collapsing.

But best of all it felt good to have music in my ears to help motivate me.

Yay, iPod shuffle!

I named it “ShuffleSexy”.

Music and running are a great combination.
