*You can only run as far as your mind will allow you. I had 8 miles on the schedule - just 8 nice miles on a cut back week ahead of Saturday's 20K - and I could have done no more. How I ran 11 miles last week is beyond me.
*I would run with a MOTOACTV - even if I didn't get one for free.
Reason No. 153: I forgot to turn it off after yesterday's failed second
run and I was still able to use it this morning. For all 8 miles. And
still had battery to spare. Anyone who has set off only to learn that
the Garmin is dead knows just how awesome that is.
*I don't care what the calendar says - it's summer. Or at least spring. If you care to know my reasoning, it's not just the seriously above normal temperatures. It's more that I accidentally ate a bug on my run this morning.
*I am (finally) becoming a better runner because Mark accompanies me on part of my long runs. The little bugger makes me run faster than I should.
*Pushing Miles in the BOB sans car seat adapter is a much more manageable task.
*No matter how comfortable I find Nike Tempo shorts to be, I still think they make me look like I'm wearing a diaper. How do I know this? Well, I like to stare at my reflection in store windows as I pass. And I've seen Miles' butt in a diaper.
*Gu Roctane is not for me. I've tried several flavors, and I don't care for any of them.
*Pancakes, even if they are 7-grain, are the perfect recovery food.
*Making enough pancakes so that you can freeze them for later is much better in theory than practice.
*Biscoff spread is like crack.
And speaking of Biscoff, our winner is ...
