I got the proofs from the race on Sat, pretty funny. I can only save the thumbnails - how do you save the bigger ones, even when it says proof across the middle? I hope I beat the girl in pink on the right picture -she's in a bunch of my pics from the end of the race!
And the Garmin that many of you have, which one is it ? How big is this thing? I used to have one when I started running 4 years ago and it was huge. It never got a signal when I needed it to and many times I run in wooded areas - do you have problems if you run in shaded/tree full areas?
Many of you are so addicted, I 'm wondering if I should look into getting one. Nike + stinks. At the race on Sat, it was almost a full half mile behind, so I'd have passed the mile marker and 5 min later it would tell me I completed the mile that I had already passed.
The run went well tonight. A few negatives were that I end up having stomach issues when I run with food in my stomach that late in the day, it took me a while to warmup and I can still feel the shinsplints(maybe it is my shoes - which only have 150ish miles on them), and the endorphins don't get to help me through the day! I love the happy warm feeling that I get when I'm done running that usually starts at 6am and lasts for most of the day. Also, around 2pm I get indigestion everyday, so that was uncomfortable to run with.
Positives: more time to run and fit more miles in, more time to stretch, more energy and don't have to wake up so early and be half in the bag. Also I can go to the gym instead of my basement and run where other people are motivating. I got a sexy maternity support belt that I ordered in the mail today. HOTTT!! It helped though!
Last - I think I should be a GU postergirl. I love the stuff. I ate some while I was running and it somewhat helped with indigestion. Soon I might start baking with it. : )
