I am always amazed by how much air my ponytail gets while running.
Today I had an easy run (5 miles @ 8:27 pace) on the schedule and I will be doing my long run tomorrow instead of Saturday. Brooke’s bday is on Saturday and we will be celebrating pretty hardcore from when she opens her eyes in the morning until she goes to bed at night. I’ll do a short run Saturday morning before she wakes up but long run Thursday just works out much better this week.
Just your normal self-timered and low quality running picture from me:
I came across my running gloves this morning in my car. Oh man, I do not want summer running to ever end… I love summer running and I do not miss my fingers nearly falling off during the winter months of training.
I’ve come to the conclusion that there will always be some sort of ‘hot spot’ on my body during marathon training. The key is to really baby these ‘hot spots’ and stay on top of them so they don’t turn into injuries. My right inner calf has been saying hello when I run but it isn’t anything bad at all. I’m just doing lots of rolling and stretching to make it happy.
After my run I went right over to my sister’s house. She cuts my hair and yes, adults use detangler too.
My niece made me this awesome bracelet… she is getting quick at making these.
And random but I thought I would share… my nephew made a goal to smile while getting his back to school shots. It may have been a fake smile but he did it:)
Lunch was with two girls that I met through a spin class at the gym 10 years ago. Working out just brings people together.
Masa won my heart.
I had two avocado tacos and a sopa (salsa, crema, goat cheese, cabbage and chicken).
The absolute best part were the plantains that had almond butter on them. I might have to get two plates of these next time.
Runner’s World featured the guy in my area that wears crocs when he runs!!!

Have any ‘hot spots’ that are bugging you a bit when you run?
