It’s probably no surprise that I will be talking about summer and running today. Lately that is all I talk about, along with food (occasionally).
I give those of you who run in the afternoons/evenings so much credit. I ran 2 miles with a coaching client Wednesday afternoon, which was a relatively cooler day, and it was still so hot! I’m definitely not used to running with the sun beating down on me.
How did I ever survive running in the summer without Nuun? It’s seriously a game changer. I always keep a cold bottle in the fridge so it’s ready for me to grab as soon as I walk in from my run.
I broke down and started wearing my last pair of Pure Flow 2s. I had bought a bunch of them on sale last year, and now I don’t think they have them in my size anywhere. I like the 3s but not as much as the 2s. I haven’t tried the 4s yet. Now I have four pairs of running shoes in the rotation…maybe its a little excessive, but I’m actually about to retire one of those so maybe it’s not that bad.
Shortly after I posted about my 5k, the race photos were posted online. You can kind of see the sprint to the finish!
This may not have anything to do directly with summer or running, but it’s still important. You may remember a few weeks ago I mentioned in a “Thinking Out Loud” post that we had the slowest water dispenser in our fridge. Well, we have to replace the filter so I took the old one out to see what kind it is, and when I put it back in suddenly the water started coming out a million times faster! This has seriously improved my life over the past two days. I felt like I was constantly standing at the fridge filling up my glass because I drink so much water and it was coming out so slowly.
This weekend I have some exciting plans: On Thursday afternoon I’ll be heading to DC with two of my friends since elementary school- one is engaged and one is pregnant! We will hang out in DC for the night and head to Baltimore on Friday to spend the night here. Then on Saturday I’m going to the Billy Joel concert with my family! I have always been a huge fan since I grew up on Long Island, and I have seen him in concert a few time and it’s always a great show! That being said, I’ll be far away from blogging for a few days. Although I do have a recipe prepped and ready to share tomorrow!
Do you ever run in the afternoon/evening? How do you do it in the summer?!
How many pairs of shoes do you rotate at a time?
Are you a Billy Joel fan? Favorite Billy Joel song? I would have to say “Just The Way You Are” because it’s our wedding song, but there are so many good ones!
