August Run

August run means hot temperatures and high humidity. Since I decided to sleep in, I didn't get my butt out the door till after 930 am to run.

I like being an ultra runner. It means I can have a full breakfast and still go off and run right afterwards. I had an egg, tomato, and Ezekiel Bread if you're interested.

I was happy to step on the scale today and see I have shed the 'vacation pounds' *8* that I had gained. I'm now back to 20 lbs gone, and am working on more.

It was tough conditions out there, did alot of hiking. My clothes were totally soaked through, even the skirt, by the time I finished up.

I was really tempted to take a dip in the lake. But it's about the temperature of bath water, then I would smell like algae, on top of sweat. So I by passed that.

This is actually the secret entrance to the bridle trail. There's a deer path through here.

So, 7.6 miles down for the day. Training (and eating) has been going well!


  1. Love the pics and the pink! Good job out there!

  2. So jealous that you can "eat and run" - my stomach doesn't care about the distance or pace - it's just plain unhappy in that situation.
