Running For Change

Running for a cause

Returned From Mississippi


It’s been awhile, but I still have been running. I was in Mississippi for three weeks, and didn’t have much access or time to post, but I did run while I was away. I got in 8 runs and some walks–all outside–so I got my June milage to almost 40 for June, which for my crazy location and schedule is a good total.

I didn’t get pictures for each run and I had to stay on campus, so my running became a bit tedious. Still, there are some fun shots along the way. Because I had to stay around campus and also had limited time, I also wasn’t able to go a bit more than 3 to 4 miles.







Most of the time I ran by myself, but there was two times where I ran with one of the other NEH participants. We were in Jackson, Mississippi and stayed at Jackson State University, so the pictures were all around the area of JSU.

The first week of running was hot and muggy. Even running early in the morning, every breath would feel like my lungs were getting waded down. Then, there was a number of raining afternoons and the mugginess disappeared. I loved running once the breathing didn’t become an exercise in and of itself.

All in all, it was a pretty decent month since I got to get in some running and didn’t have to run on a treadmill inside.

But, my foot is hurting a bit. I’m a little worried that I might have a bit of planter fasciitis. I ran on Monday, but I’m waiting until tomorrow (Friday) to run again. In the meantime, I’m also going to have to do a bit of biking and maybe possibly get into the pool again.

Here’s my shot from my run when I finally returned home. Nice to have the trains back again.
