I finally went for a run today. 3.2 miles in new shoes and a new place, with a terrible (for me) pace. Not sure what really caused my pace to be so slow today. There were a lot of variables...the weather, the new shoes, the new area (and getting kind of lost), hydration, etc. No worries though, know that I'll get faster once I know my routes and get back in the swing of things. I know that I need a routine, and once my new job starts, I'll have that.
On the job front, I was supposed to start today, but my background check has to get completed before I can go into work. I have my work ID and paperwork done, so it's just a matter of waiting.
