I attempted taking a picture of me on my favorite treadmill but then people around me were pointing and laughing so I I took a picture of the treadmill and ran to the corner crying.
Please enjoy a sweaty iphone picture of me foam rolling. It only took 22 tries. If I am looking this creepy in the picture just imagine what the 21 outtakes looked like.
I did not spill my water bottle all over me, that is the consequence of 10 hill repeats in 11 miles. Reason #4565 to exercise in the early morning….Billy doesn’t see me looking like a beast but I guess taking a picture defeats the purpose since I post it for him and many others to see. Hmm..I guess I should rethink this whole posting pictures of me sweating like a man thing.
After my run I took off my shoes and noticed blood on the top of my foot. Weird. I didn’t feel pain on my foot during the run but I think it was bleeding because I tied my shoes to tight. It stings a little now (probably because I spilled hot chocolate on my foot).
Let’s talk about battle wounds.
My top battle wounds:
-I am the queen of chaffing. Do I just have sensitive skin….what’s going on here? I use Body Glide religiously. I thought I had skin cancer when I first started running because the tag of my shorts made a huge mark on my lower back and I had no idea why.
-One time I fell so hard on the sidewalks that cars pulled over to see if I needed help because I banged my forehead and it was bleeding. I waited on the street corner until my brother came to pick me up (good thing I always take my phone with me).
-It rained the entire time during my second marathon which produced some gnarly huge blood blisters all over my feet.
-I have made grown men cry when I passed them during a race (okay, that is someone else’s wound but I am going to count it).

What are some of your battle wounds from running or working out? Do you notice during your workout if you are chafing, blistering etc?
-It is the weirdest thing but I think all of the endorphins cancel out that burning chafing feeling until I get into the shower and then I pay.
What did you have for lunch today?
-I had a huge salad (topped with tuna, carrots and broccoli), a pear, and a greek yogurt. Dessert=A blow pop…..deliciousness. Two hours later I had a bag of popcorn.
Do you have a certain treadmill/elliptical/machine at the gym that is your favorite?
-Yep, right by the fan, the tv works perfectly and it doesn’t wobble like half the treadmills do.
