baby prairie dogs are distracting on long runs…

seriously, two baby prairie dogs kissing – I melted (sorry the pictures are so blurry)

I ran 11 miles this morning. Wore my new running skirt and I can confirm that it is absolutely awesome. No ride up and it was super light – I seriously had to check a few times to make sure I was actually wearing bottoms because it was so light and comfortable.

This is definitely becoming my favorite long run route

I was really happy with my run – even running at my slow turtle pace for long runs, I’m on track to finish my half under 2 hours.  But really my goal is to have fun with this race since it’s my first half, so I’ll be happy if I just finish with a smile on my face.

I had an Arbonne chocolate protein shake after my run. Never tried one before, but one of my Luna Chix Ladies is an representative for Arbonne and brought us all a bunch of samples. It was pretty delicious – AND it’s gluten and dairy free, which means its tummy friendly for me. I really need to get better about refueling properly after runs, because it does make a huge difference in my recovery time.

having a snack drawer like this is perfectly normal right?

oh and this is how I carb loaded last night

the waiter always laughs at me when i order a gluten free pizza with vegan cheese and ALL the meat toppings. Yes I’m a confusing person.


Do you have a runner’s snack drawer?
