There's a lot of random stuff going on in this post; I apologize for that. I just don't know when I will be able to post these days since I am still in Accountant hell right now. Year end is busy and we are trying to get ready for the audits. Any Auditors out there? I do not like you much right now.
I did my 8 mile run this weekend. I felt great throughout the whole run and my lungs felt strong. The weather on Saturday was in the 50's and I even thought about wearing shorts. I'm glad that I didn't; midway through the run, I dropped a large amount of gel on my pants and it bounced off my knee and landed on my shoe. I seem to have issues taking gels while running, half the time they end up in my hair or all over my face. Anyway, I stopped to try and clean up, because I didn't want a bunch of bugs and hair clinging to the sticky mess, and grabbed a handful of snow to wipe up my knee and shoe. The point of all this rambling is that I'm really glad that I didn't wear shorts, the snow would have been cold against my bare skin. Yes, all of that to tell you why I was glad I didn't wear shorts. Aren't you glad you checked out my post today?
I finally got my t-shirt in the mail from the San Antonio marathon. Yes, the one that I couldn't run in. I am proudly wearing my $110 t-shirt below. I figure that I trained for the damn thing, even making it to a 20 miler before my October "issues", so I'm going to get my monies worth out of the t-shirt.
I thought that I would get a closer view of the shirt, but you still can't read it very well.
Two great giveaways that I wanted to mention. Tricia at Endurance Isn't Only Physical is giving away a mini sport belt and Molly at I'm a Sleeper Baker is giving away some Sweetriot Chocolate Nibs. I've never tried them, but they are chocolate, so sign me up.
Last, but certainly not least, I was tagged by Saundra at Fitness For Foodies to list out 10 Things That Make Me Happy, so here goes:
1.) My family is, without a doubt, number one
2.) My dog; she’s just too cute. I love going on walks with my husband, daughter, and the dog.
3.) Running. Duh……
4.) My road and mountain bikes. A good mountain bike ride on a great spring day is awesome!
5.) Running on a perfect spring morning when there is no one out yet, but me and my thoughts.
6.) Did I mention that I really like spring weather???
7.) Sitting on a patio somewhere with my hubby, watching the sun set, and drinking a really good beer.
8.) Beer in general. Again…duh.
9.) Finishing a great long run and knowing that I gave it everything that I had and left it all out there. There is no greater feeling.
10.) Did I mention that I really like spring weather? It will be 60 degrees today. Can someone say….RUN!
Ok. I'm done with my rambling. Hope everyone has a great week of training. I think that I have about a 100 posts to catch up on. See you soon!
