Ok, Now I'm Addicted To River Runs

Since I put a pause on my gym membership (only til June 13), I can finally run before work. Yesterday I did my normal boring MIT to Harvard and back run (~4 miles), but today I upped my game and ran along the Esplanade, which was SORTA BEAUTIFUL.

I did 6 miles, but severely underestimated how far it was to get back when I turned around, so I ended up having to do a few loops. Now I know better!

I think I'm going to start on a marathon training plan. I really like to stay on an actual plan and, right now, I'm just sort of running whatever I want between races. Not the best decision. I decided to go with Hal Higdon's Novice 2 marathon training program. Free and starts with where I'm at right now. I might have to start getting up earlier to do some of these runs, but I'm really looking forward to it! I also just bought a Nathan Intensity hydration pack when I realized this morning that my little water bottle would not get me through long summer runs. I'll follow up with a review!
