There will be blood

Pre-workout eats: Apple Chai oatmeal (instant)
Workout: 4.28-mile run

Note to self: If you have a bloody sock on Thursday, trim your toenails. Even if you don't think that you need to trim them, do it. Or else you'll have an even bloodier sock on Saturday.

Note to self: Just because it's 30 degrees when you set out for a run don't assume that you're going to break the sound barrier with your lightning fast speed. Your nose will still get runny and you will still want to hack after 2 miles.

Note to self: 30-degree weather requires a compression top, jacket and tights. Don't let Mark think that you need a compression top, tech half-zip, windbreaker and vest. And don't let the running company guy, who doesn't even say hi back as he passes, let you think that you should wear shorts.

Note to self: Don't drink three glasses of water before a run when you already have to use the restroom every 45 minutes.

Note to self: Don't buy half-caff coffee at the grocery because that means you can only have one cup with breakfast.

Note to self: Put Band-Aid on toe before going house hunting.


  1. Lol oh no! Sounds like a rough one, but at least you did it!

  2. haha poor foot! But great job for pushing through. And I hear you on the overdressing/underdressing. Sometimes it's hard to tell what's going to be just right for an outdoor run! Have a great Saturday!

  3. Dressing appropriately has been almost a bigger challenge for me this winter than battling the CRAZY conditions. Agreed - no winter shorts!
