Day 348: Tarheel Ten Miler

I’m a little further behind on my running training than I’d like to admit – the last double-digit run I did was at my half marathon. Ever since I scraped my hands up, I haven’t run more than once a week. Needless to say, I was a bit nervous going into this Tarheel Ten Miler – especially after L’s horror stories of the hills! When we were lining up for the race bright and early this morning, I legitimately had no expectations (I also forgot my running watch and iPod, but that’s a different story). I was even mentally prepared if I needed to walk from mile 8 onwards. But I ended up running really strong. Around mile 9, I started to feel a little tired, but the idea of finishing outweighed my burning legs, so I went for it!

To be honest, not a lot of thought went into my race outfit – I just picked things that were clean and short for the race!

Sound off: are you training for anything?

Day 347: We’re Stressed Out

Today was so unnecessarily stressful. This morning I had an offsite meeting, but the address in the meeting invite was wrong! I parked way too far away and then got lost. After walking for 4 miles (according to my iPhone), I ended up at the meeting about 30 minutes late. Oops! After the meeting, I had a super stressful afternoon at work. I was absolutely exhausted by the time I got home – thank goodness L and PJ are driving as we head to Chapel Hill, NC tonight!

I wanted to dress cute and comfortable – but after my morning jaunt I was sweaty and had a blister from these shoes. From here on out, I’m going to wear sneakers to any meetings that might require walking!

Sound off: any great stress relievers you can recommend?
