Gray. Damp. Chilly. That pretty much says it all about Tuesday morning in Nashville IN.
My legs were restless all night, telling me they wanted to go for a run today, so I complied! I jumped out of bed, ate a yogurt cup, then pulled on some running shorts, a long-sleeve running top, socks, running shoes, pinned my room key to the little inside pocket of my shorts, and tucked a $20 bill into the little back pocket and I was out the door.
It was definitely a little chillier than I thought...guess it was the damp and grayness that made 46 degrees feel so much colder.
I headed down the main drag of Nashville with no real route in mind...I just "winged" it, exploring the town, running down roads that I had no idea where they went or even if they were paved around the next bend.
I took a right turn onto one promising road and got about 1/2 mile down before the pavement ended and the gravel path shot straight up the side of the hill. Okay...not going there! So I turned around and started zig-zagging my way south on side roads, the McDonald's a mile down the road calling my name!
Hot latte stop at mile 2, then home the last mile to my cozy suite at Hidden Valley Inn.
It misty-rained all afternoon and I was content to stay inside. I went back out only to return to Big Woods Pizza to pick up an Italian sub and a different beer - this time the Hare Trigger IPA - to bring back to my room for dinner.
Tomorrow is supposed to be a rainy day....we'll see what the day brings.
