Running Track:

2.5 miles… ish? Good leg stretcher after yesterday!

 

So after yesterday’s post and the feedback I have been getting from you guys, you all seemed to really enjoy my suffering.

You guys are sick.

But it’s okay I guess. I love you anyways.

I always put my blog post on DailyMile every day. If you don’t know what DM is, it’s like Facebook for athletes. Pretty awesome.

So when I posted my blog from yesterday, here is some feedback I got.

“Live and learn Rebekah! The trick is to learn. ๐Ÿ™‚ Great job getting in a long run and a nice pace, even with the odd gait caused by the … let’s call it the skirt issue. I think the skirt is fine for you if you use body glide, anti-friction stick, the chaffing won’t be a problem. I use Chamois Butt’r for cycling. In my running days, good old vaseline did the trick.”

-Scott

“You’re funny!! Awesome long run, considering all the “issues” you had today. Maybe some short spandex shorts under that skirt will help? I should know…I have no gap either ;)”

-Angie

“I’ve made some of those myself. Glad I’m not the only one! Sorry but I did have a laugh at your expense! On a positive note…good job getting those miles in!”

-Jennifer

“You were just being efficient Bekah, getting all of those oversights behind you in a single run … you’re an overachiever! Sweet miles …”

-Andre

“ouch.”

-Jenny

Ah.. I love DailyMile. You know you’re in the right place when you share common mistakes with people, who understand your pain, but can still laugh at you at the same time.

So in order to celebrate my mistake filled run yesterday, and all of the lessons I have learned, I got my self a nice sugary snow cone.

Tiger's Blood and Silver Fox!

Most people would say, “You shouldn’t reward yourself with food/ sugars! You’re not a dog!” To that I say, “Woof!”

I think they’re just jealous.

Also, another thing to be jealous of is my freshly shaved cat, Shadow. She is still kind of drugged, so she was actually loving me a few minutes ago… what?!

Meet a drugged Shadow.

Now here’s something that you probably shouldn’t be jealous of… sunburn.

Boo me.

Boo me.

Ok. Well I’m going to go put more medicine on my burn and try not to cry.

Run on.

HAPPY TWOSDAY!

It felt SO GOOD to get back to the gym to run. Besides the fact I forgot my phone at home this morning, so I had zero music/ entertainment throughout the school day. (I’m a senior. Some days we just don’t do much.)

A compliment I got today was from a fellow senior.

Him: “So what is thing running blog thing you are doing?”

…explain it to him…

Him: “If we had to place money on who would be the most successful in life out of this school, my money would be on you.”

I can’t even explain how accomplished I’ve felt all day after hearing that.

Tonight I went and applied for a job at our local Anytime Fitness. Probably the perfect job for me. After I applied, I went BACK to the high school to run for the second time today! It was a pretty solid run. Started out with some gnawing knee pain, but then it went away after the first mile. I helped resolve some prom issues (Juniors, for real. You need to go help with prom setup. It’s a lot of work and there is always something that needs to be done. Been there done that.) I also got to race Kennedy’s (one of my most favoritest people ever) little brother. I won… totally something to be proud of. Beating a younger kid.

Pictures from tonight:

Now I want to chat about some really cool things happening here.

The colors come in different sizes/ length. So choose which ones fit you best for your needs! PRO Compression also has awesome calf sleeves, if you’re into that sort of thing.

I like the marathon socks because they support my ankles/ feet as well… Keep it tight!

Tomorrow I’m going to start a really cool giveaway, but that’s saved for tomorrow. So you better read then as well!

Run on.
