Hot and Bothered

My new ipod armband came yesterday!!!!!!!!!! I just had to go try it out.

I ran the loop around the park yesterday…and the humidity got to me. The first half of the loop goes by the river so the humidity was really bad. Then on the second half of the loop there were gnats. More gnats than ever should congregate in one park. And is it just me, or do all gnats know to swarm over the paved trail??? If I go off on the grass, there are no gnats. On the path…gnats!!! Furthermore…why do all gnats fly at heights between 5’0″ to 5’3″??? Also known as the exact height of my mouth/eyes. I think I ate about 2, snorted 5 and got 3 in my eyes.

Despite the bothersome gnats and humidity I managed a pretty good time for 2 miles…but I was pretty tired after. Also my ankle hurt during the first part of the run. My chiropractor says it might be my shoes…and he’ll “fix them” for me.

Ok these are expensive shoes that I was specially fitted for by the people at the shoe store….I….trust the running people. I understand what my chiropractor is saying that I might have been compensating for something and now it’s fixed hence the new pain….but…I’m very skeptical.

I’m going to talk to the running store tonight…maybe see if I run different now? I don’t know. I just want my ankle not to hurt.

After my run I made some amazing veggie fajitas.


Then I got a package from my friend in Vermont!!! (I threw it on over my running clothes…)


Also, this is my new favorite water company. The bottle is shaped like a flask and it cracks me up.


Overall pretty darn good running day.

Running group tonight…I think… It’s kind of rainy so we shall see.
