Thick nasty Gu

Chris just spent $80+ on Gu yesterday. Wow. That is a crapload.
He called me from the store to pick me up some. I'm looking forward to my tropical flavors, and most of all, the blueberry jelly beans! I even had a dream about my Gu.
I hate Gu, but I think it's better than eating pretzels, chips, candy during a race.

37.3 miles completed- Land Between the Lakes

Woohoo- I finally finished a longer distance! Overall, the race was awesome! I'll write more details about it later- but my time was 7:13, I was second female, and 15th overall. Not bad. The weather was very nice and sunny and it was beautiful outside. I was actually able to walk afterwards and my legs fully recovered just 2 days later. I'd like to do that race again.

I ran a few miles yesterday at a 7:15 minute pace without trying to. Does that mean I can run a marathon at an 8:20 pace? Maybe not- but that would be nice because it would qualify me for Boston. I have an OH marathon in 2 weekends...we'll see how all of the conditions add up and see how it goes. I won't be disappointed if I don't qualify so I'm not planning on it right now.

More to come!

Warm weather runs

I had two really good runs in yesterday and Saturday. Because we're in IN, the weather randomly was really warm this past weekend- in the 50s. I ran a good 9.5 miles (even though I went out for 11.5. Dangit.) and then a good quick 3 mile run last night. I love running at night- all alone, you're awake, cooler weather...It was nice running in shorts, too, not a ton of heavy clothing.

It's supposed to rain today and then freezing rain tomorrow. Hopefully the weather will be warm in KY this weekend for our big run!! I'm looking forward to my Monster drink. Yummm.
