It's yet another beautiful weather day. The Running Weather God's delivered this morning. I had a long run to do and was determined to leave earlier than yesterday's 10 a.m. departure. I was on the street pounding pavement by 8:45 a.m. Not bad.
|I'm all ready to go. I slathered on a super thick layer|
of sport sunscreen and decided to wear the visor today. It
was quite cooling and blocked the rays that showed up later
in my run from my face. :)
There was a foggy haze and a slight breeze when I headed out the door. Ahhhhh....so refreshing. I did my run in the nice flat crushed gravel trail. It felt very good on my legs and feet. I saw many many runners on the trail, including Courteney! I spotted her in her fluorescent green shorts and tank from a far! :D
The run felt very good overall. There was a rough patch between miles 11-13 where the trail has an 'invisible incline'.....this is what Courteney and I call one of those weird sections that you can't really tell from looking increases in incline, but your body feels the climb. I took a gel and some Gatorade and once the trail became 'flat' again, I was good to go. I fuelled up today with Gu: Vanilla Bean and Mandarin Orange/Vanilla. I took the first one at 11 miles and the other at 17.5.
|I always bring home my wrappers if there's no trash can around, |
or if I'm too lazy to stop and dump it...lol. Remember runners, be Green!
|My sneakers are super dusty from the run!|
|Looking totally fantabulous after the run...NOT!|
|She chills with Matt at the office. <3|
