Here are some of my favorite shots she took.
It was super duper fun. And of course I had to try my hand at some photography as well. I had my little point and shoot, but it seemed to do the trick. It doesn't hurt that Kathryn is seriously one of my most beautiful friends. But you can see that for yourself.....yes. Ok.
After biking Monday with Aaron (and hauling some major ass *for me* in the middle miles of the ride), I couldn't get motivated to run on Tuesday. Wednesday rolled around and I had planned on doing a tempo run. Until I started running.
Dear IT Bands,
They were a'screamin' fo sho. After the warm up mile I figured I would just do an easy run, and also decided that I wouldn't do any speed work for the rest of the week to let my legs recover. I guess I didn't factor in that even though I didn't push to the point of pain during the race that I wouldn't still need recovery time. Ie: I'm a dummy head. :)
I did 5.25 in 53:27 for a pace of 10:11.
Thursday I did 6 miles in 59:42 for a pace of 9:52.
I also lost a dear dear friend on Monday. As I was exiting the wave pool at our local waterpark with Miss Kathryn, I noticed a tiny sliver of pink hanging on to my toe for dear life. It was....my toe nail. :'( First I had to calm Kathryn and explain that this was a completely normal occurrence for runners. Then I detached the toe from its tiny dangling thread and gave it a proper burial. I said a few words, and tossed it in the trash. RIP pinky toe nail. You will be missed.
