Retrieving my Daughter’s Hat

Monday is usually my day off from running. However, I had another plan today. My daughter lost a hat at the Agriculture Museum Friday. Since I work close to the museum I decided to run over there if it had found.

I called the museum when I got to work and sure enough someone had found it and it was waiting at the admissions counter. I don’t normally need an excuse to run since I usually take Mondays off but this provided me with justification to go for one.

Good thing because it was a perfect day to get out of the office for a run…

Once I got going I felt good so I decided to push the pace a bit a give myself and unplanned tempo run. In the end I picked up the hat and ended up with a 7.8 km tempo run. Not a bad way to spend my lunch hour.
