Say hello to Mrs. 3:01 marathoner. She text me last night seeing if I wanted to go on a run in a few hours (my way of saying that we went way too early even though I secretly love finishing my run when it is still dark outside).
She has the best stories ever and she keeps me very entertained.
PS her quads. Amazing.
I was excited to try out my new vest for the run and I loved it. The last time I wore a vest was my sweater vest in 7th grade… I think I may still have it actually.
This thing kept my core crazy warm and I love the kangaroo pocket in the front. It is a new running staple. I don’t know why my hair was so huge this morning. It was early.
Today was one of those days that I mentally wanted to go fast but my body was not having it. I think three races in one weekend and then a bunch of travel may have something to do with it. I will be resting up like crazy until my race on Saturday. Luckily, my friend Josse was more than okay keeping it slow with me.
I came home and did some sit ups and planks, I am needing to get back on track with doing daily core work.
One of my favorite parts of the day is getting back in my pajamas after a run and shower. I may be in them for an hour or half the day but either way I just really like pajamas.
Brooke has taken over my water bottle.
Even though Brooke is smiling and happy most of the day she does have her moments were she dramatically throws herself onto the ground and has a little tantrum. My mom and I can’t help but laugh.
After I poured my bowl of cereal this morning I noticed that the last bowl from this bag is going to be quite exciting… sugar crash here I come.
Off with Paige to get lunch at our favorite salad bar and then find the perfect Halloween costume for Saturday’s race… I need to find something awesome but also something that I can still attempt to run fast in. Anyone have a spider-woman costume I can borrow?
And some great running articles that readers sent in:
–The Daily Run. Interesting one about our running habit and routine! We crave routine.
And bad news about Ryan Hall. I feel like my life is over when I get injured… I can’t even imagine how difficult it must be for these professional runners that get injured.
Ever done a race in a costume? Anyone running a Halloween race this year? What are you going to be?
What races have you had to pull out of because of an injury? What was the injury?
What did you run in today?
Favorite type of ‘sugary’ cereal (no healthy cereals will be allowed for this answer)?
