Nothing says ‘Good Morning!’ like a nice tall glass of iced coffee. I went to the drive thru of America’s favorite restaurant this morning for my coffee fix. Yep, McDonalds…gasp! OMG did she really just say she went to McDonalds!? I surely did.
Want a tip? Order it PLAIN Jane, with no ‘liquid sugar’ and NO cream…then add your own fixins for less calories. Liquid sugar sounds kinda odd anyway, no? I thought so.
I loved your comments on my last post…I think you all hit the nail on the head about avoiding the ‘comparison trap’ that we sometimes see among competitive runners. What I love the most about being in a running GROUP is that people are so supportive and encouraging. I love the camaraderie among runners and think it is important to develop bonds with people that share your common interests. My homegirl Janae pinned this last night on Pinterest (totally obsessed with that site) from Kristen Armstrong’s book ‘Mile Markers’ and it really struck a chord with me:
I have built so many lifelong friendships with so many amazing people over our love of running, and for that I am so thankful. All ages, races, different backgrounds. Love how one sport can bring people from so many different walks of life together.
Last night I taught dance class at the 24 Hour Fitness gym in Murphy. We did lots of hip hop and I mixed in a little salsa music. They especially love the ‘Sweat it Out’ song, so I made sure to put that song on my playlist. It’s one of my faves.
I also love dancing to this song…it makes me feel like I’m on vacation in the Caribbean somewhere.
Tonight I will be trail running it with some of my Luke’s buddies! I am excited to get back on the trails this evening…it’s been way too long since my last trail run.
What kind of workout are you doing (or have you done) today? Ever tried trail running? What songs are you loving right now?
