The Fairest Week in Review: 9/2

Mickey running

I just completed my first outdoor run in… forever. More on that later this week, but needless to say, I am tiiiired.

On that note: happy Labor Day! I hope you’re thoroughly enjoying your day off. Also, I hope you have a day off! And CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who finished the Disneyland Half, 10K, 5K, etc. over the weekend!

Last week was something of a back-to-basics training week for me. I didn’t do any really long runs, instead logging three eleven milers. It’s been pretty hot and humid here, and even at steady, baseline speeds I ended each drenched in sweat. This from a girl who has run around Walt Disney World in August and thought little more than “Hmm, it’s a tad hot.” I never, never, NEVER though I’d say this, but I’m ready for summer to GTFO in favor of the crisp, runner-friendly weather of fall.

Man. And here I thought my allegiance to warm weather would never cease. THIS SPORT CHANGES YOU.

Musically, I am not ashamed to admit that I’ve been listening to Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop” repeatedly during runs. What? It’s got a good beat! Also I, too, am gonna take your grandpa’s style.

Y’know what else I’m gonna take? YOUR LINKS:
