This last month or so of 5Ks are going to be particularly challenging from a mental standpoint. I’m just really bored of running the same routes over and over.
I actually live across the street from my old neighborhood of years ago. That’s the high dollar guard gated community of Stoneybrook West.
I have been thinking about running here for a long time, but as I mentioned it is a guard gated community. However, in my quest for something new, I decided to try to run through the gate anyways.
I was able to just squeeze around the liftgate while the guards busied themselves with the many cars passing trying to get in.
It was a really nostalgic run as I took in the now mature landscaping and relived some memories of what seems like a different lifetime ago. The run itself was a bit labored. Luckily, I was distracted trying to notice all the landscape and neighborhood changes from when I was one of the first occupants in this area. As a side note, my right glute and hamstring continue to trouble me with soreness. https://www.strava.com/activities/588093350/embed/4e553386317cb0ed912ddd791342588c3d96a03d” target=”_blank”>328th 5K
