My Super Exciting Running News

I am doing Ragnar Key West in January!

I somehow managed to get in with a team of complete strangers (it pays to blab to your doctor about your love for running) and I will be headed to Miami on January 5th for the relay.

In further "destination races" news, I'm headed to Denver tomorrow and planning to run a 5K there Thanksgiving morning with my brother.

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Casual Speed

I've been a little "off" of my usual workout routines the past few weeks. Normal for me this time of year - with hunting season, I am basically a single mother (my husband is a DNR officer) - and it gets hard to fit the workouts in. Today, I snuck away at lunch for a quick 3 miler. Instead of my usual run from the office to the golf course and back, I ran to the high school track. The original plan was to run a mile around the track and run back. To mix it up, I ran a lap hard, then jogged easy, then a hard lap, then jogged easy for a lap. Then ran easy the mile back to my office. Speed work? Not really. But a little casual speed that got my heart rate up and reminded my legs that they can move.

I may have been a little stinky at court this afternoon, but it was totally worth it to get out in the sunshine and get my sweat on.
