I like tight pants

Checked the weather for tomorrows’ race and discovered that it will be in the low to mid 40’s the whole time I’m out there. This is good because I don’t get as fatigued in cooler temperatures, but bad because I don’t have anything quite warm enough for that kind of weather!

This of course, prompted a trip to Target, where I purchased a few much needed items.

I have been looking for running leggings and they finally had them! I feel most comfortable running in tight bottoms and fit but comfortable tops. I have a jacket that I’ll probably pass off to the husband just before start time.

Ok, need to get these in the wash now to be dry before tomorrow. And need to charge my camera battery for my first ever blogger meet-up tonight!


A lovely day for 3.5 miles

Holy crap.  3.5 miles may not seem like a lot to all you avid runners out there, but to this novice runner, it’s a real accomplishment.

That is officially the longest distance I’ve done off the treadmill!  I hope I didn’t set myself up for soreness on Saturdays’ race.

I feel great right now though; I usually feel like crap right after a run.

Pretending to faint…

And can I just say how happy I am that after 26 years on this planet I’ve finally figured out that at least part of the big secret to healthy skin is a balanced diet!!!  That’s the power of fruits and vegetables people!

Time to rinse off this well-earned sweat and go pick up my race number and shirt for the big day!

Wish me luck!


Preparing for the weekend

Started the day with this heaping bowl of goodness…

An apple, a banana, granola, chia seeds, toasted buckwheat, cinnamon, and almond milk.

The idea was to get up and go on a run immediately, but it started raining pretty early so I ended up waiting most of the morning before I could go. I did manage to get in almost 2 miles while it was still sprinkling out.

I’m running my first 5K this Saturday, so while I don’t want to overdo it this week and wear myself out, I don’t want to sit around all week either.  I think I’ll do one more short run tomorrow and just take a few walks before Saturday.

Also this week, I’m attending my first ever blogger meetup on Friday! I’m excited to meet other Georgia bloggers and just have a good time.  I haven’t been blogging for very long, so maybe I can learn a few things too!

Ok.  Gonna munch on some of these and try to get some work done.

It’s pouring down rain now, makes me want to go back to sleep……zzz.
