This time next week I will be heading off to Boston, one of my absolute favorite cities, to visit my wonderful friend and fellow runner Michelle:
Us after the 2012 Kentucky Derby Half Marathon
I am super excited about this race, but after looking at the elevation...
((That might not seem like much to some of you, but I'm a Prairie State girl, born and raised!
Hills are not my friend...))
It is so cute and so light; I can't wait to run in it!TWO
I did it. Visited the teacher's store, that is! Back to school shopping has officially begun. I am sticking with the same turquoise, black, and polka dot decor as last year, so I shouldn't have to buy too much (hopefully!), but of course I needed a few new things! Between a stop there and a trip to Target, I have some of the basics covered. Last year I spent a ton of money on new things for the classroom, so this year I am trying to restrain myself!
Remember the heat wave I talked about last week? Well, I was SO pumped to wake up yesterday to some nice and cool weather! In fact, I was able to have a super lazy morning and head out for my run after 11 thanks to the cooler temps!
67 degrees at 11:05??? AMAZING!
I drove a little ways to a gorgeous trail that I discovered during half-marathon training in May. I hadn't run there since then because my midweek runs I usually just run in my neighborhood and since I've been running my long runs with my training group. Today called for 5-6 miles though, and this trail has a beautiful 5.5 mi unpaved loop, so I figured it was perect.
Do you run close to home or do you ever drive to running spots?
Have you bought anything awesome for your classroom yet?
