Run 1.17 - Nice, Short, Loose

One of the shirts I picked up at the Pre Classic
Nice and short, this one felt great on my legs. The 5 mile run the day before was kind of sluggish and my legs never loosened up as much as I would like. I spent the day hydrating as I should, although probably still not enough, and made sure to really stretch out my calves before this run. Again I ran with Man Friend. Turns out we are a really great running duo. Pace wise it is a perfect match and we kind of help keep each other steady. This may have been our fasted pace run together, coming in at 10:40 average pace. Still I had us go faster than I intended, but it is also about :40 per mile slower than I've been going - so this is a good thing!

During this run, I kid you not, I spent 2 miles telling just 2 stories of my drunken escapades during my younger days in Florida. They're quite the stories - perhaps on a day when I have writers block I'll pop on over here to share the story and finally explain why I always get photos taken on benches like I'm sleeping!

Post-run I rewarded us with vegetarian Sloppy Joes (Tidy Janes, as Cilley Girl dubbed them) and tater tots (which my iPhone auto-corrected to TITS). Thanks, Apple. Thanks. That wasn't embarrassing at all to send!! And now I have one day off before a 3 miler on Saturday before I go to the Oregon Caves. Sunday finds me running 8 miles, which I'm looking forward too actually! I hope you all have a lovely Friday and a relaxing weekend!

    1. Let's just say Man Friend perked up when I told him I was fixing that for dinner instead of tater TOTS! ;)

  2. Mmm, tator tots! I think there was something about running too, but I'm hungry so I all I retained was tator tots! haha!! Oh! So, not too far from the Space Needle is a hamburger place called Lunchbox Laboratory (they have a good bean patty) and they have sweet potato fries and tator tots!! I alternate between the two (or make sure someone else is ordering the other so I can have both!!) Just in case you needed a tator tot place in Seattle.

Sorry I haven't been more comment-y lately, have been reading new posts on my reader on my phone and starring posts to come back to and comment when I'm on the computer, but I've fallen behind :)
