    I’m extremely disgruntled and unimpressed with how humid and hot it is here. Everything is damp and slimy and I’m kind grossed out.

    I forgot about this from the beach the other day! They had an oceanside play ground with swings and every time I see swings I have to do that flippy thing off of one.

     
  5. A local news station did a story on how Kalon’s doing and what his life is like now, if anyone is interested. His attitude and optimism are pretty incredible.

     
  6. Beach day in Rhode Island! I read, tried to swim but couldn’t because the ocean is cold and hates me, and took a short recovery run on the beach. Also included an obligatory “feet in water” picture.

    I’ve been questioning why I think I need to lose weight too. Some of it is partially due to thinking if I drop a few pounds I’ll run faster, another reason is I’m surrounded by people on diets who trigger the hell out of me; there’s definitely still deep issues with eating and weight that won’t go away no matter how much I try to ignore it. There’s no real rational answer to this.

     
  10. Race today!
    It was a lot bigger than I had expected…260 runners, many of whom are speedy as hell. Lots of college and high school runners using the race as a tune-up.

    I raced the guy in the orange shirt the last mile and just wouldn’t let him pass or get away. We both sprinted the final 200 and I beat him by a second. After crossing the line we fist bumped and thanked each other so that was an awesome finish to a challenging and very well organized race. My mom was also kind enough to take a picture of me fresh from the finish line before my little sister told her to stop because I was a soggy, dripping mess.

    The course was hilly (surprise surprise) and humid but offered lots of shade. I ran 22:31 and placed 31 overall, 5th female which is ok considering the conditions. I’m feeling good about where I am in training and, as I said a few days ago, feel like I’m setting myself up for a fast fall racing season!
