The sunny days of summer are coming to an end.I had to wake up at an unbelievable hour to run many miles this morning! More than 12 is a bit insane in my opinion but I am sticking to the training plan! Plus a bit of crazy at 5 a.m. never hurt anyone.
Luckily I got to break up the miles with a new running friend and blog reader! Caitlin crafted a lovely, less hilly, and lush route through Bluemont park, Custis, and other cool Ballston trails.Speaking of trails, Caitlin told me about this cool race series: EX2 Adventure’s Backyard Burns. For all you trail enthusiasts and dirt lovers!
We chatted away, stopped for water, chatted more, and boom. We were done! Drenched in sweat and humidity as the picture below shows.Thanks for the great run, Caitlin!
Shout out to Greg’s List, who published my “award-winning” story the other week when I won Chevy’s Blogger Eco-Friendly dinner. If you like cute stories and aren’t tired of reading about me and Anthony then you can give it a read :).
And now that I am drenched in sweat and covered in crazy, I guess it’s time to shower and find my sanity again. I am running late as usual. Have a great day!
