A wee bit late, but I FINALLY made a running page!! You can find it on the KERF Favorites tab and it contains all of my race recaps (not that I’ve run that many!) as well as a whole spiel of information on my half marathon training like hydration, fueling, mile reports and my Camelbak. I realllly want to run another half….but…you know what I’m going to say…Charlottesville’s hillllls are killing me! I have to get much more used to them first before I pile on more miles.
Nevertheless, after writing that post I was inspired to run run run!
We did a wide 6-mile loop around town. It was hot, so we kept our pace nice and slow – somewhere around 9:30 average. The first half was great in nice neighborhoods and shade, but Matt mapped it through some industrial parts in the bright sun with no trees and I was not a happy camper for miles 4-5! We survived.
My right hip flexor is super tight – I think from biking actually? Need to stretch. Lots. MORE YOGA!
[Thank goodness for Camelbak hydration!]
After quick showers, we assembled a quick lunch. When you have nothing to eat, open a can of
We made a Navy Bean Salad with a drained can, cucumber, green pepper, carrot and a sauce made of lemon juice, dill, and hummus plus a little bean liquid. It was totally creamy with no mayo. And very delicious!
On the side, a sample pack of Mary’s Gone crackers from the HLS swag bag. I wanted them all but Matt made me share! Humph!
My favorite glass. Filled with seltzer.
We’re semi-dressed up for our afternoon appointments. And have a super fun dinner planned for this evening!
