Running in style

I really should have gone out earlier, but I was out last night and slept in. I didn't get to bed until after 3am. Anyway, the run was not so good. I'm sure a lot had to do with what I ate (or didn't eat) yesterday. I did have a few drinks but I had plenty of water before I went to bed and I woke up hangover free. So I'm thinking that had nothing to do with it. My main problem was that I didn't eat enough. This is what happens when you're lazy and don't cook or at least make PB&J.

In any case, I went out too late (because I got caught up in a Bollywood flick), it was kind of hot, so my plan was to just take it slow. I was Kool and the Gang until I started heading into mile 4. I got stomach cramps (which explains how my splits got jacked up). Maybe it had to do with the coconut water I brought along. I didn't chug it so I'm really not sure. I only finished about half of it. Anyway, I made it through, Thank God. I came back looking like I played 5 sets of tennis. Yeah, I know, the women only play 3 sets at the most, but I was soaked in my new running dress. Thanks to Nettie, I got a discount on this cute little number. I can at least feel cute and stylish while I'm sweating to death.

Well, I'm off to eat some grub. I'm starving.

It's been a while since I ran to music, but I was just in the mood for something smooth and laid back.

Ooh, I want that dress. If you gotta sweat buckets (which I also do), you might as well look as cute as possible doing so...

Like I tell my team, it's not how fast you go but how good you look.
