Night run around the neighborhood loop backwards after a day of seeing Les Miserables and having fancy dinner with Nghi. Unfortunately the fancy dinner was still kicking around my stummy which made the run a little tough, but the running part itself actually felt pretty good. As usual, I learned a lot about the grade of various parts of the loop by running backwards. I think I like this direction better because the terrible ending on Thruway was a nice beginning. The road was slippery and I got hit by salt from passing salt trucks a few times, but that just made me feel tough. I wore my old shoes again because my new ones are still sitting at school.
