First run of 15K training = too hot for this mess

It was just two miles, but MAN was it hot! And it was only 9:30 a.m.! Texas, our Texas.
I ran a route close to home that includes the perimeter of the apartment complex. My gear: hand-held water bottle (thank the lord), Sansa Disk and pepper spray in case of crack heads or feral dogs. Time: 19:38.

As far as running logs go, I’m trying both RunnersWorld.com and MapMyRun.com. I think the latter will win out. I like the interface better. I’m totally giddy about being able to, well, map my runs with Google maps and find routes in the area that others have mapped, too. Fun!

How’s my training going? Oh — that.

False alarm — I’m not training. I’m planning a wedding, working, commuting, doing extra freelance all while trying to squeeze in some family, friends and breathing. Training for a race … hahaha, cute. I’ll shout when life straightens out a wee.

Strep can really ruin a good run

Well. Bought a new running outfit, socks, a honey pack and everything and I come down with strep throat. So, no Camper Scamper for me in the morning. The doctor said I could run if I felt like it, but yeah. Don’t feel like it. My froat huhhhhhts.

Brian was going to run the 5K and me the 10K. He’s already started looking up races we can do to make up for it, which was sweeet. And sweet in my book = hawt. Haaaay.
