Every once in awhile I have a profound thought. The other night we were hanging out with a bunch of KK's friends. They were recounting a recent visit to Vegas where they met some random people from Florida. When they stated that they were from South Dakota, specifically Mitchell, SD they were shocked to find out that the Florida kids had heard of the "corn castle" (or the Corn Palace, as it's actually called). All of a sudden, a thought struck me.... what if the Corn Palace started on fire?!?!?!? FREE POPCORN FOR THE STATE OF SOUTH DAKOTA!!! YAYZIES!
[Sidenote: Why do all of my "illustrations" depict fire of some sort? I should really learn to draw it if that's the case.]
And then Kyle popped (baahahhahahah get it.... punny popcorn reference) my bubble by stating that they were two different types of corn and then I was sad.
Those are popcorn tears. FYI. Also, don't be alarmed, in real life I have an actual outline to my face. Not just a chin and ears.
I did my first long run of marathon training Saturday. Due to illness and such I've done one long run longer than 9 miles since Vegas, and it was 12 miles with Jenn in Houston.... a month ago. So I was a little nervous to do 14. It was actually a gorgeous day for a run, and I took it nice and easy, and then tried to pick up the pace the last mile. All miles were between the 9:29-10:29 LR pace that I'm adhering to this round of training except the last mile.
I did 14 miles in 2:21:xx (too lazy to look it up).
Monday I had an easy 4 miles + striders on the schedule. Because of the ice storm we got this weekend, I was stuck running on the treadmill. As soon as I started running I had some major tightness in my right lower hammie. I slowed to almost a 10 min/mile pace and let it warm up, and stretched big time after the run. I opted against the striders as well. Sorry Jase. :(
