On Friday I decided that I needed to get some more hill training in so I went over to the upcoming half’s race course to run some of the hills we will be racing on in just a couple weeks. My run started early and it was a bit dark and foggy out!
I avoid running on streets as much as I can, but this was the race course so it had to be the street. Oddly enough, the only vehicle that made me nervous running on the road was a school bus which seemed to almost “run me over”!
I ran 8.5 miles on the course and then drove back home to run 4.5 more with my friend. I haven’t run with her forever so it was great to catch up with her.
It was good to get 13 miles in, but it sure didn’t give me any confidence that I was going to bust out a fast half!! Sigh.
On Saturday we drove to a beautiful place in Ohio – Hocking Hills. It was a lot of hiking up and down into the caves. I will post more about that next time because I haven’t taken the pictures off my DSL yet (I’m posting this from my phone on the way home!) but I did have my selfie stick to capture this classic…
Hope you are having a great weekend. It was 73 degrees today. Simply incredible weather!! We’ll be carving pumpkins and getting ready for Halloween on Sunday.
Oh, and we kept the kittens for a few more days. More kitten neck warmers!
Q: Are the leaves falling where you live?
Q: Do you run on streets or trails (paved or stone) more often?
Q: Prefer Athleta or Lululemon?
Athleta is my only splurge, when I have rewards to spend!
