I went to Pacific City, Or. for a wedding and I found out the day before that there was a beach run, but of course I only brought wedding shoes and sandals. I hit up the Nike Outlet store and bought some new trainers. Laced up the shoes for the first time and took to the sand... Then got my new PUPPY (since this is all about puppies)
Honeymoon with my sweetie and fellow fitfamer, Christina. Ran in to some baby sea turtles on the beach that of course skewed the time and added a slight detour to the run.
And well of course it's about 50°F warmer than home and the sun is shining.
I've been dealing with shin splints after picking up new shoes and running some sprints and 5ks. Today was the first run in the last 3 weeks without any issues, I felt pretty good out there.I thought of my Nuun team while running today. They picked it up by showing their numbers by creating the 2nd largest team of the event, wahoo!
After a weekend of driving, concerts, more driving, buffeting and sleeping, I could say I wrapped it up with a 10k bow, and can go to work with my mind free and clear of any unjustified indugences.
My 3rd bike ride of the year was killer. Put up 8 new PR segments, 2 of which included a 10th overall and a 15th overall. My weekend included a lot of hiking, some wildfire fighting, and bridge building. Who needs sleep?!
