Sorry, just staring at my feet. My Asics were muddy from this mornings trail run and my Brooks were out in the car so I opted for my old Saucony's (Grid Hurricane's) this morning on my way to work.
How on earth did I use to run in these things? These shoes are so bulky! It is no wonder I took 12 minutes off my marathon time, these shoes alone would have added that much! ;)
Can a 120 lb chick really need that much shoe? Obviously not since my feet seem to be pretty content in my Brooks which are much more slimming. ;)
I guess I may have liked these because of the support (I wore grid hurricane's throughout college), I do notice that I can't go very long in my new racing flats without my ankle bothering me, too much pronation.
Got out onto the trails this morning before work. It is warm out! 55 and climbing. It was really windy but the trees blocked most of the gusts, and anything I did feel was warm. Is it really November?
The trail was gorgeous this morning! Yellow leaves everywhere. I saw a buck run by at one point. Tried to grab a pic but he was too quick for me. I am so glad I found my mini cam. The images aren't great but it is fun to take photos while running.
Did my regular N. C. route on the Bridle Trails. Somewhere around 4.5 miles in 38 minutes (I did walk about 50 ft up the killer hill by the castle) I was beat! But I recovered, took a pic, then headed up the third tier of the hill!
I walked from the big tree to where I took the pic, lazy, I know!
This is the second of three tiers on this hill. It hits about 30 minutes into my run and it is brutal!
Speeding through the woods.
I want to know how Wil gets such fantastic photos of herself during training. I mean seriously, do you have a professional running photographer chasing you around? I am way jealous!
