HAPPY FRIDAY! I feel like this week has been sooooo slow. Probably because I’m super excited about seeing all my friends/family at my bridal shower tomorrow! This is my first “wedding event” and I can’t wait to see everyone 🙂
Last night I came home to this wonderful box of goodies on my front steps from Susie. I won these delicious treats in a giveaway she did a few weeks ago. Her blog is awesome (and so is she), but you guys probably already know that. Of course I had to sample a bite of pretty much everything as soon as I opened it. Some of the chocolate bars didn’t survive the heat, but they are in my refrigerator recovering as we speak and that won’t stop me from eating them.
I refused to run on the treadmill for the 3rd night in a row and Dixie was carrying around my running shoes so I decided to give outdoor running a try. I waited until about 7:30 when it was a cool 93 degrees and did a couple laps through the neighborhood. Dixie did the first mile with me (8:15 pace… she really missed running) and then I put her back inside because it was just too hot and I was afraid people might think I’m a bad dog mom. I did another two miles at 8:30 pace and called it a night.
I must say the aftermath was probably worse than the actual run. I was sweating for hours. You might think I’m being dramatic but for some reason it takes my body sooooo long to cool down after running in the heat. At 9 pm I was standing in the freezer with ice packs on my neck so I wouldn’t have to take another shower. Anyone else ready for fall!?
One more thing… I read this article yesterday from Runner’s World. If you have 20 minutes, it’s a MUST READ. These inmates organize and run races in their yard and their stories are just incredible.
Hope everyone has a faaaaaaabulous weekend!!!
Have you tried any of the treats I got from Susie? Thoughts? I’m excited to try the Picky Bars!
Does it take you a while to stop sweating after a hot run?
