I did an 8 mile run this morning on the good ol’ treadmill. I was going to sleep in and run after school but at 6 someone was kicking around (not Billy) and I couldn’t sleep so why not get my run on? I really am loving my Brooks Green Silence and I even wore them to school today so that a bunch of teenagers would think I was cool and so that I could run around the halls going the speed of light.
Does it get any more fashionable than that?
I will be spinning and ellipticalling Thursday and Friday because we have the SLC 1/2 Marathon on Saturday! Anyone else running the 5k, 1/2 or full marathon in SLC on Saturday?
I think I have told you this a trillion times but one more time doesn’t hurt right? SLC was my very first marathon and so it holds a special place in my heart. The best part of all is that I followed through with my evil plan and successfully brainwashed Billy in the last 2 years to love running and he will be running the 1/2 on Saturday and going for a sub 1:26. I don’t have any goals for this race besides to see how many laughing cow wedges I can eat for fuel (they have replaced my beloved swedish fish for fuel during the race).
Billy has all of his splits ready which also take into account the course uphills and downhills. He kind of likes math:)
Since approximately 8:13 this morning I have been NEEDING lemonade. This wasn’t a craving like ‘oh that sounds really good and I’ll have to eat that at some point.’ This was a ‘holy cow if I don’t have lemonade in my body in the next 10 minutes I might explode’ kind of craving.
The whole job thing kind of forced me to put my craving on hold until it was time for Drivers Ed. Hey, learning how to use a drive-thru is totally part of the curriculum.
While we were out driving around we came across a couple just hanging out on a couch ‘talking’ and enjoying the view. I don’t know why I feel the need to take a picture of everything random that happens in my day.
To conclude this thrilling post, the highlights of my day were lemonade, my treadmill and people on a couch.
Are the majority of the races in your area on Saturdays or Sundays?
-Here in Utah they are always on Saturdays.
Tell me three highlights about your day!
Do you figure out all of your goal splits etc. before a race?
Who have you brainwashed into loving running? Who do you want to make love running?
