Humpday Happenings

First, thanks so much for all your kind words. It’s so nice to hear such support even though I am not the fastest runner in the world!!


I woke up Monday morning a bit nervous and just laid there for a minute. Last Sunday, the day after my half marathon, my legs were stiff. Walking was a process and it took me a while to get moving. So, while I laid there, I started moving my legs a little. Imagine my surprise when they were fine! No stiffness, no heaviness, no grimacing in pain. Maybe a tad sore in my right hip and right knee ( I have noticed that my right foot strikes the ground different than my left foot—my right foot strikes the ground with the outside of my foot--I wonder if I need a different insole in my right shoe), but that’s not anything that I wouldn’t have expected! I was so psyched to feel fine I jumped out of bed and did a happy dance!

I was a tad worried that the back to back (to back) races would be hard on my legs. People told me I was crazy—and heck, I realize I am. I was a bit worried to see what conditions my legs would be in by the time the 10K rolled around, but I am pretty confident that they are going to be in pretty good shape.


If you are coming to the MCM Expo in DC on Saturday, stop by the RunningSkirt Booth. Both Katye and I will be working there after our training run! Should be a fun day, followed by an excellent race the next morning!


That’s all for today. I am off for an easy treadmill run and then more work on my legs with the stick (ohhhh it hurts so good!).


Happy Running Everyone!

I kinda love that stiff feeling after a difficult race. I would kill to feel that soon. JK. Glad to hear that your body is adjusting well to all the racing.

Have a great time! You're going to do awesome. I so wish I would have signed up for this one...

Oh well. I guess there's next year.

BTW: I just got the pink argyle capri skirt earlier this week. I love it and am dying to wear it!

Hi! I found you through Katye's blog. I've stopped by to wish you luck this weekend with your 10K.

Good luck!
