I don't like Britney Spears, really. But I will say, a few of her songs are good for running. For example, Piece of Me is good for mile 7 when you're telling yourself, just 3 more and then you can die on a park bench.
Who in their right mind gets up at 6 am on a PERFECTLY good Sunday, in 90% humidity, after only four hours of sleep, and spends nearly 2 hours running? WHO? NOBODY, that's who. Nobody in their right mind. Only insane people do that.
10 miles. That's one thousand calories, people.
You wanna piece of me?
I got done with my run (nutrition consumed: 12 oz. G2, 1 Clif Shot and 8oz. water) and couldn't figure out why I was covered in sand. What the hell did I just DO? I mean, I know I was running along the river, but I don't remember jumping in to cool off.
Then I realized, it was salt. I'm used to getting salt on my forehead, but I had it all down my arms and legs.
I swear someday I will blog about things other than running again. Like my sick kitty who spent 3 days in the hospital for a UTI/blockage, or that my oldest kid turns 8 in just over two weeks.
The half marathon is 55 days away.
