First, the comments from this morning’s post made me cry. I am so lucky to ‘know’ you guys and I am so thankful that you are so willing to share what you’ve been through and how running has helped you. You guys are incredibly strong and inspire me to be better.
At Target yesterday Brooke and I both chose a new water bottle. She went with santa and I went with purple… typical. With 19 days until race day I am hydrating like you wouldn’t believe.
People say that running is a cheap sport… well, not exactly when you are addicted to hand warmers. Below 30 degrees = I need hand warmers because freezing fingers take the fun out of running for me. These babies keep me nice and toasty and I don’t care if the rest of me is cold as long as my hands (and ears) are happy.
I had pretty much the same run today as I did yesterday. An hour easy (8:09 pace) with some hills. Tomorrow and my long run involve speed but with the taper I am cutting back in mileage and intensity. I want to keep my legs fresh and moving with some fast stuff but also rested and ready to go.
It was cold and windy this morning but the drift 1/2 zip kept me warm and seen (I love wearing a color that makes it especially easy for cars to see me while running).
Also, random question…. I’ve ALWAYS worn my fuel belt with it on my back. I put my phone, key and fuel in there and just reach back when I need something. But recently I’ve seen a bunch of people wearing it in the front which makes sense because then you can grab stuff out of it easier but I feel like it might get in the way. People that wear a fuel belt—> front or back? PS I use this one because it is water resistant!
We got to spend some time with the one and only Megan and Brooke clearly didn’t want me to be in the selfie…
Eventually she let me in.
JUST TWO days left to get your DONUT FORGET TO RUN SHIRT!!!
And a very important question for you to answer. Is it too early?
Fuel belt—> front, back or you don’t wear one?
What are your Tuesday night plans?!
