A short race and a fall day

I ran my first 5K yesterday.
It was a great race.
I finished in 17:40, so roughly 5:40/mi
It was sunny and 48.
I like the shorter races, because afterwards I don't feel fatigued.
I finished 3rd overall. Small race, but that still felt nice:)
I went for a 9 mile run today and it was also wonderful!
The sun was shining.
The leaves are golden and red.
I ran out to north point past the boat launches and ducks.
I didn't feel tired, irritable, or like I wanted to get the run over with.
It was peaceful, calming, and fulfilling.
That's what running is supposed to be about.
