will run for shoes

For real, I'll do anything for a new pair of kicks.

Or a Reese's Egg.

I'll even run. Really, really slowly.
Not sure how I keep getting such high (low?) bin numbers. Also not sure how the race will go tomorrow since I’ve been a total slacker in terms of training all month…

Ramen cooked in chicken broth with veggies (cabbage, asparagus & leeks). No death seasoning packet needed!

Not terribly sure how I rated such a high (low?) bin number… Better be #readytorun! Today’s the SuperHero run. First of three in three. #mamaruns #getfit

Nugget literally ripped the bandaid off of my extremely painful toe blister. #OUCH #toddlerlife apparently I needed socks on my humid mid-day walk the other day. :-/

Nugget decided my sparkling water should be his. Then he promptly dumped it all over the floor. #toddlerlife

racing the sun

So, with 35 minutes until sundown I needed to make up for the 2.5 miles I flaked on yesterday.

In 34 minutes I got in an even 3.

:-D

MapMyRun will only show 2.6 mi, though. My first 5 minutes were weird in the app - it told me I’d run 3.4 mi in just 4:35!

Regardless of the technological glitch, it was a really good run. Because it was an early day (up at 4:15 a after waking up a few times due to our overnight thunderstorms) I tried to not push too hard. I still limited my walk breaks (only 2 before my cool down) to when I stepped on a rock and nearly lost my footing and when I was on a narrow trail that included a rotting boardwalk.

Good thing it felt so good tonight because 2 more miles are waiting for me tomorrow.
