My decision was made extra easy this morning about whether or not to run today! My favorite running buddies were going running so of course I had to join them. Plus, a lot of you guys had great points on taking next week to taper and get my legs fresh before my 1/2 on Saturday.
There was an old man walking around in the parking lot that took our picture, we ended up talking to him for a while and he couldn’t get over how the boys were wearing shorts but told me I did a great job dressing for the weather….too bad I was dying of heat at about mile 6.
We decided to try and mimic the course for our race next Saturday and drive 14 miles up the canyon and run home from there. The course next week has a good amount of downhill and uphill so we wanted to test our quads on some hills in the canyon.
Does it get any more gorgeous?
This run actually really tested me. It was an ‘off’ day for me mentally and physically but I kept telling myself that I DO NOT QUIT. I slowed down but I would not let myself quit and instead tried to be distracted by how gorgeous it was all around me.
Quick note about my new On shoes: I am still loving them but they are SLIPPERY. I hit a tiny bit of ice and lost all traction, I came so close to falling. Definitely not snow running shoes.
Off to refuel at another all you can eat buffet with the boys!
Tell me about your run today! How did it go?!?! On or Off day for you!?!
Do you wear sunglasses when you run?
-When it is sunny, heck yes! I don’t like having to squint as I run!
What are you refueling with?!?
-About to go get some garlic sirloin and grilled pineapple:)
