Lessons Learned

I waited today until after we got home from RI and put Emma to bed to do my run. I headed down to the beach and boy was it wack-a-doodle night at the beach!

Here are just some lessons I learned from this run (in no particular order):
  • I am still in love with my Garmin...seriously love it!!
  • Even though they make bikinis in size 26 doesn't mean that you need to wear it!
  • It's amazing what a long weekend without running will do for your legs...I intentionally took some time off before starting to train for my next half because my legs have been feeling like lead lately
  • Tie-die dresses with the shape of a target right around your butt should be left in the store!
  • Sometimes you have to just let your body run fast even though your schedule says "easy run"...sometimes your body knows what it needs.
  • When it is melt-your-face hot, wait until late to run and run the beach! Amazing!
  • After 7 pm brings a whole different type of person to the beach!
  • Elderly people walking holding hands is one of the cutest things ever!
  • A good run can erase stress like nothing else!
Day one of training done...since it is forecasted to be over 100 degrees today I am going to try to head out before 8am! Stay cool!
