It hasn't been all fun and games though.
|THIS REALLY HAPPENED|
I was forced to shop at the regular grocery store, and just look what I found.

|I'm also in constant danger of being eaten by zombies, as we all are.|
With that in mind, I thought I should try to get back into more frequent running, so I actually just finished a three day running streak. I don't even remember the last time I ran that consistently, unless it was part of brick workouts. I had to bust out my old friends.
Tuesday was actually supposed to be an impromptu rest day, due to being super tired for no good reason. But then I needed to make a 34 mile round trip, and thanks to both Obama being here and the rain, it took over 2 hours. In total, I spent four hours in the car, including my drive to and from work, which was also horrible. So I decided to do a few miles in the pouring rain. 4 miles at 8:26, which is super fast for me, especially in my hilly neighborhood.
Wednesday morning, I did 10 miles with Mike on the NCR trail, and the distance felt a bit tough, which makes me a tad nervous, since I'm doing a ten mile race on Saturday. This morning I did an easy 7 miles. It felt weird to run with absolutely nothing - no Garmin, no music, no water. I was such a zen runner I think I was one step away from being barefoot.
Are you also addicted to running gear? I still reach down to start my Garmin even if I'm not wearing it.
