I spy an old picture. Sorry, I ran in Alex’s hood yesterday and didn’t take a picture. But this is the outfit I wore haha. You can tell this is old because I don’t run with my knee strap anymore! My knee is completely better now which is awesome Smile

The thoughts on this run should be fun because I ran a different route, so they aren’t the same thoughts you have read and read over and over.

I’ll give you a pre run update. Before the run Alex and I spent about 2 hours outside in the heat. I was sanding our future kitchen table and he was taping and painting our kitchen chairs. The wood dust was awful and pretty much got everywhere. Needless to say my run at 4:30pm was not the greatest, but not awful either.

Thoughts on the run

  1. This sun is really hot.
  2. I hope this route isn’t too hilly.
  3. I hope I find a drinking fountain along the way! I don’t have those at home!
  4. OH the shaded sidewalk is nice.
  5. SO much dust, please stop getting in my eyes. (construction site)
  6. Time to turn down this road. Aww what a cute dog. Hello lady, your dog is cute.
  7. Drinking fountain!! WAHOO!! It’s not too cold, but better than nothing.
  8. Time to cross the street.
  9. PLEASE NO!! Of course, my ipod would die 2.2 miles in. Wonderful.
  10. Gosh it is hot. Wish my ipod was working. Sad smile
  11. Time to turn around.
  12. Hi lady running, maybe we should run together. Naw, doesn’t look like it.
  13. Drinking fountain stop #2.
  14. There are a lot of cyclists out. How cool.
  15. Why yes I can tell you how to get to the pool. Straight and on the right.
  16. NICE! I just gave directions. Good thing it was to the pool, otherwise I wouldn’t know.
  17. Train tracks, please don’t trip.
  18. I am going to spray the hose all over me when I get back. Yes I AM!
  19. I can see it! ALMOST THERE!!
  20. BACK!

Before I found the drinking fountains I did think of asking one of the cyclists for a drink. It wasn’t a serious thought, more of a “what would they do if I asked” because if it were me I’d be like, no dude. ha

Oh hey check out dem spandex. HAH I really need to get a mirror that makes me look as good as this camera does. It always seems I am looking into those circus ones that make you look short and stout. Not that I mind..it’s nice to look 4 foot sometimes. Who am I kidding, it’s awful hahah!

Another wonderful run today!

Thoughts on the run

  1. Holy cow it is windy out. It’s also really muggy. Gross.
  2. I wonder if my mom is right, maybe the rain washed the stinky raccoon smell away.
  3. NOPE definitely not. I think it’s worse!! Especially with this wind. MY GOSH!
  4. I think I like stop lights because I get to stretch at these busy intersections. Maybe that’s why I do this route all the time?
  5. No dogs out Sad smile Who is going to race me across the fence?
  6. It would be wonderful if it started raining.
  7. Aw, I see this lady walking all the time. I wonder if she recognizes me like I did to her?
  8. Probably thinks “there goes that girl that always passes me wearing insane spandex”
  9. Ah I spy another runner. Maybe I’ll catch them!
  10. Gaining, gaining, gaining.
  11. CAUGHT!
  12. Nice basketball shorts dude. Real runners wear short shorts. No big.
  13. Dang, I thought the wind was bad going the other direction, this is awful.
  14. I’m giving up with running decent. This wind sucks and I am dying from wind burn in my throat if that is possible.
  15. Aww dog, you came back for me! I knew you wouldn’t let me down. It’s go time!!
  16. Dang, you always beat me. Sad smile 
  17. I wonder what’s for dinner.
  18. The Voice is on tonight! WAHOO, I hope Dia stays!
  19. HOME!

Onto other news. Have you ever wanted to hug someone through the interwebs? Well today was one of those days. My Mississippi State gals are so beautiful and wonderful and I just wanted to send them my support and amazing hugs because they are awesome hah!

Don’t mind my awkward pose and my awesome hair. I had showered slightly before this picture and it fro-ed out like usual. I didn’t want to hug the air so I hugged myself. But this hug goes out to my dear friends Haley and Renee. We are practically bff’s, they just don’t know it yet.

Now for some fun!!!!

Giveaway Time!

OutsidePR was wonderful enough to provide me with a gift certificate to get a RoadID. I had a RoadID Elite but once I saw the new version “Slim” I knew I had to get it! I have extremely small wrists and so the smaller the better.

IMG_9694

To compare it is the size of a typical band such as livestrong, or my juvenile diabetes band. It’s also just as comfortable. I don’t notice it when I run which is great and I wear it 24/7. You never know when you might need it, even when you aren’t running!

Well you have a chance to get a RoadID too!

Here’s how to enter

 

Answer these questions (both can be in the same comment)

MANDATORY: Visit RoadID and let me know what model you would choose if you won

MANDATORY: Do you have any ways you keep safe on your run? I’m sure many of you carry your nun chucks in your spandex or short shorts just in case. I usually avoid running at night at all costs. It just creeps me out.
