–This morning’s cloudy HUMID run was quite blissful! I saw just a little bit of color in the sky peep out so I had to get a shot before it went back into hiding.
–I’m back to loving getting up extra early. Mostly because of these HUMA gels. My Amazon shipment came in and I have to say I’m loving these little packets of happy. Chia gels for the win.
–Down here in Texas our Memorial Day weekend is looking like lots of rain but there may be a few rain breaks. I’m really needing some pool time so hoping the sun does make an appearance.
–I’ve decided to hold off on paying for virtual runs mostly because I really have been loving running on my own timetable. It’s helping me fall back in love again not having such a strict schedule. And I have STRAVA and running friends for the accountability part.
–A small part of me does hope that the Hachie 50 still happens in October though. It may not happen but it’s local so I think I’ll keep my name on the list just in case. If not – there’s always 2021! Damn I miss me some ultras.
–Who has a super long weekend coming up?! I know weekends don’t really feel all the same since the quarantine but I really am looking forward to some time off from slaving away with work. I may even just try to clock out a little early tomorrow.
–Plus a little funny for your Thursday. YES. This is so Texas. Mmm brisket.
Share some randomness with me today!

That’s an awesome sign. I may have to give the Huma a shot, since you’ve been giving them so many shoutouts. 🙂
Yeah my homie JennaRuns introduced me to them! They’re great because I really can’t stand how overly sweet and syrupy GU is. Let me know if you try them!
I’ve never been a huge fan of virtual races (and don’t really see the point of them); however, I don’t hate on folks who do them. Some running organizations have been using the popularity of virtual races for their racing calendars. For example, the Brooklyn Half Marathon is pretty much impossible to get into unless you live in or near NYC so running one of NYRR virtual half marathons will get you a guaranteed entry for the following year’s Brooklyn Half . . . which is not THAT great of a half marathon. I think there is something similar for NYC’s Marathon. *Hater mode on* Yeah, Brooklyn Half’s finish line is on Coney Island, but you run on the boardwalk for about 400 m. I ran it twice back in 2010 and don’t really feel the need to run it again.
I am just seeing this comment days later! So off my blogging game sorry. I hear you though 🙂 I could totally see how one would be motivated to do them, especially if they need a PUSH. 😉 Have a great week, friend!
