Setting this goal for myself has been so good for me. I love love running, but there's a lot of days I just feel like being lazy.
But knowing I have to run 100 miles, I HAVE to get out there and run. Of course, I'm always glad I did it.
One of those days I was not feeling it was this past Sunday. I never run on Sunday's. I do my long runs on Saturday, so always rest on Sunday.
I did 10 miles Saturday, but the month is almost over, so I needed to cram in a few more miles, meaning I needed to run 4 on Sunday. I put it off as long as I could, then I forced myself to get out and run.
I got to watch this gorgeous sunset during my run!
I got some pretty awesome new Brooks Pure Flo's! My favorite shoes evah!!
I received a discount code from Indy Monumental (the half I'm doing Nov. 5th) for a box of Boom gels, so decided to give them a try. So many flavors! I tried the banana peach today during my 7 miler, and it was really good. Not as sweet as the honey stingers (good thing), and not as gooey as the GU's. Just perfect!
I'll be starting October 17 (day before my birthday!).
I can't put into words how happy I am. After 10 years of being home with daycare kids; getting back into the real world, making new friends, actually making some money agin- it's going to be wonderful.
This means I can sign up for more races, buy more running clothes... haha!
