- Ha ha, my biggest struggle this week was getting a cold Tuesday night – and trying not to act too whiny about it at home, so Steven would not say anything about me continuing to work out. What can I say?! I love to workout! And I still do when I am sick, until it’s in my head. Do you ever try to “hide” how sick you are feeling from someone?
- Jube Jel Candy Hearts make good (and YUMMY) long run fuel! Do you use any unconventional fuel for your long runs?
- My running club put on a half for club members yesterday. It was the third in the “DIY Half” series, but my first to attend! We met at someone’s house, ran the 13.1, then had a fun party after with LOTS of food! We each paid $5 and had bibs and that cute medal in the “Saturday run” pic above. I can’t wait for the next one!
- One week until our relay in NYC! And two weeks to my first 5K of the year!
*Despite having snow since Thursday I couldn’t fit in snowshoeing until the weekend! Still gotta take that rest day…
