the good: Tomorrow I have a long run planned since I'll be gone Saturday (for Kristi's wedding!).
the bad: I still haven't settled on a route. Since I'm leaving at 5am I want to pick a well-lit area to run, at least until the sun comes up. I've been trying to change up my route lately, since I was getting a little bored (yes, me, queen of will run the same route and listen to the same song and watch the same movie and read the same book over and over and over again) but some of my new trails are on unlit streets. So... back to the drawing board. I try to have a route picked before I go so I can run with purpose... and so I don't inadvertently cut it short.
the ugly: We have a wind advisory in effect tonight. I believe at 5am they should be dimished, but still. A good headwind makes 20 miles feel easy, right? Right. At least it'll be in the 50s!
Lately I've been eating peanut butter clif z-bars on my long runs (half a bar at a time), but I have some fuel that's been in the cupboard since Christmas. It's time to use 'em up. Which of these look like your favorite?
Dave and I are enjoying some afternoon coffee. Check out the mug he brought me!
here, you, too, could have some awesome mugs (or plates or bowls or whatever!)! Everything there is beautiful!
