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.

5 Miles in 39:42 [7:56 per mile]

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

Q: Do you enjoy running new places? I remember running in florida on Longboat Key and it was enjoyable besides the heat. However, at night I was extremely creeped out and never did that again.

    I'd rather bake than cook.

    I just made this banana and chocolate chip bread the other day and it was amazing. You should definitely try it :). There are pics of the finished product on my blog as well.

    I hate when my ipod dies when I'm on a run! Especially when you're not even halfway through. At least it wasn't a very long run.
    I like to cook eggs. Mostly because they're easy, can be cooked in a million different ways, and can have just about any topping. Talk about versatility.
