My brother and I joined the folks of Alabama Outdoors for their Tuesday night Red Mountain Park trail run. I was a little iffy going into this because of this darn cough that won't go away, but I made it through without any major cough spasms. It took me about 3 miles to get warmed up, but after that, we had some great conversation about health care reform, which was interesting enough to help me forget that I was running.
Plus we nabbed some free samples for the road. Who doesn't love free samples?! Looks like perfect long-run fuel for Saturday. I'm a little nervous about the GU brew, but I've been testing some Nuun so it'll be good to have something to compare.
Finally, we got a replacement fridge for our broken one. Now we just have to get replacement condiments to go with it. Even though I hate wasting food, it was kind of refreshing to just do a giant food dump. You know how some sauce bottles linger on forfreakingever in your fridge. Well, those are gone now. Moving on to newer, fresher condiments. Also, I can buy vegetables again!
We're also trying to play our brains out before school starts on Monday.
To shag it out even longer or give a haircut -- that is the question.
Last little bit o' news: today is the last day to register for the Nashville Women's Half Marathon before prices increase. Plus you can still use the coupon code YOMOMMA10TN for $10 off. I'm so excited for this race and the sweet swag.
What's your favorite race swag?
