First of all….Tall Mom The Amazing has graciously volunteered to
be my chaperone in Vegas come to Vegas and RUN the marathon with me!!!! Can you all say “Super Duper Excited!!!!”? I am beyond pumped! I am also a little in shock, I just can’t believe she is willing to come and meet me and run with me and…on the other hand it IS Vegas and my Race- At-The-Last- Minute style is contagious. Although I never booked a flight and flew to another state to run a race on a whim, she’s got me beat there. Either way, it is going to be off the hook! Off the chain! Totally tubular! Watch out Vegas!! I have always wanted to be a Show Girl…maybe they will have recruiters at the expo or the even the water stations…You think?
Ok, second.. Chaffing.
I have been suffering from chaffing lately:
Do you see it? The pics don’t do it justice. I wore the WRONG bra on my 18 miler and I am paying for it now. And so another one goes in Not-To-Be-Worn-Over-10-Miles pile.
I have heard, you know, from a friend of a friend (not ME of course) about chaffing…you know…
Talk about OUCH! Man! How does that even happen? Ok, I know how it happens technically, but not really and more importantly how do you prevent it and treat it?
Lastly, I had a good three miler today. Last week I ran three with The Hubs and I had to run fast just to stay in his dust cloud. He physically cannot run slow (and he thinks my 8:30 + pace is slow) so I had to work hard to run AFAP (as fast as possible). Well today, I ran with T-N HizzO….a friend of The Hubs who is staying with us until he can find a house here. It was nice to have a running buddy, even if he did tell me, “You make a lot of noise when you run.” Um, old running buddies, do I? I don’t think so. He said my feet sounded heavy. How can I use that information to improve? Um, is it possible to run lighter?
Stats for today’s run:
3 .09 miles---- 27:26 8:50 min/mile
And lastly, now I am no foodie but I am super stoked to tell you that I made bagels! That’s right, I made home made bagels! And they were DEEEEEElish! So now I don’t have to search the town over looking good, fresh bagels! I can make my own!
Now, off to chilax!
