Hot & Humid
Not my best run. First of all I wasn't mentally into it today. I knew it was going to be hot and humid. But I changed clothes, strapped on the belt with the water bottles and took off. I was barely a half mile into it and wanted to stop already. In fact, I think I did stop for water. But I trudged on. I stopped several times for water which also stopped the clock. So the 4 miles in 39:11 is misleading. Oh well, I suppose I got a decent work out in. I plan to get one more run in this week, and then I will run the 5K this weekend. Taking off last week has sort of unnerved me a little. I don't feel very prepared. I do plan to swim a couple of times this week along with strength training and some yoga. I'm glad I got out there today. Even though my run was 'blah' I still did it.

My son will play outside at any time and in any weather. When he was little, my family couldn't believe that we played outside all year. I heard "Isn't it too cold to be outside?" You have to remember that our families live in Mississippi and Texas. And although it does get cold there, most days it warms up during the day, and then repeats the process the following day.
Pennsylvania weather was an adjustment for me in that some days it just doesn't feel like it warms up very much in the winter. But that being said, it doesn't stop us from getting outside. And honestly it shouldn't stop you either as long as the temperature isn't dangerously low.
We dress in layers. We wear hats and gloves when we need them. We keep moving. I try to find activities that will keep us active and moving while we are outside.
Sometimes, you just want to eat something with a crunch. And for me, a sweet crunch is even better. I was given the opportunity to try Natural Sins
And I would love to show you a picture of what the pineapple ones look like, but Lil Man ate them all. YES, I mean he ate 2 bags before I could even snap one picture. He liked them that much. I did get to try them, but he ate the majority of them.
I think this is an awesome idea, and I can't wait to get one. This looks like multi-tasking at its finest. I'm talking about The Convertible HDL by PRracer.
What it is? It's a skull cap / headband combo that is equipped to hold a device like a headlamp or a camera. The Convertible HDL is designed with the latest technology. Not only does it light your way, but it has a camera to capture your run.
