By the time you are reading this, I will be out conquering my longest run to-date. Today brings an 18-miler! I’m excited and nervous. I planned ahead. I did yoga last night and stretched to loosen up my hips and I will be doing the same before hitting the pavement. I put some water bottles in the freezer before bed last night and topped them off in the morning with some Gatorade. I never thought that I would be a Gatorade drinker, but I really think it helped with last week’s 15 mile run. I felt really good during the entire thing.
I also have a friend on the other side of town who is putting a bottle of ice water in her mailbox for me in the morning to pick up as I run by. What great friends I have. I warned her that I may end up stopping to use her bathroom. 🙂
Jaden is going to day care for a half day this morning so that I can get my run in, then I will be picking him up to hopefully run some quick errands with me this afternoon. I desperately need to schedule a hair cut. It has been a year since I’ve seen my regular stylist. I’m not sure that I even qualify to deserve a stylist with how little I take care of my hair. I’d actually love to get some color done too (to cover up the gray), but I don’t think I can afford it right now.
I will be back with a recap of the 18 miles later. Have a great Thursday morning!
