A GREAT big THANK you to those who responded to my “Please HELP” post yesterday. A few of you even sent an email with some great info. I love BLOGGY WORLD. THANK YOU for taking the time to comment and to give me some helpful info and thoughts.
Oh running and HOT weather. Ok so some of you might not think it’s hot, but for those of us who have been watching the rain for months now, 65 is HOT, well at least it seems hot, really hot when you’re running. The last two days I have enjoyed my runs in the sun and have been feeling the heat. How do you do it for those of you who run in 85+ degree weather? I was praying today that it would be a cool June 26th day for my first marathon. I would say I was a wimp, but I have birthed two children so that can’t be true.
It’s funny how a route you hate during a speed workout can become your favorite route. I think I like it because it’s in my neighborhood and if I need to I can stop at my house for a bathroom break and it’s mostly on back roads and it’s a challenge with hills at the end. I guess as much as I like a flat course I also like the challenge of the hills, the new hills. Call me crazy, but what runner isn’t a little crazy? Plus the views of the sound and the mountains add to the beauty or it’s the downhill part of the run while I see those views….good views, downhill…it’s all good.
Monday I took the shorter route, about a mile less.

I decided to leave my iPod at home and just enjoy my breathing, footsteps and the view. It’s strange how as I am walking out the door with my iPod I question if I should leave it and the first few moments of my run I still wonder if I should have brought it, but then I get so caught up in the run and my thoughts that I forget about it. Strange how I used to think I could never run without it and now I really enjoy the runs with no music.
