Heat Wave

Wow, it’s been quite a while since the last update; sorry to those of you who are following me. Wait, how many of you are following me, anyways? Do I need a poll? I think I do!

Baltimore 10 Miler Bib

So, here’s what’s been going on since the last update. The race is this coming Saturday and not only that, but my Mom is visiting! I’m very excited for Mom to visit. I haven’t seen her since Christmas and, I’m thrilled that she’ll be able to see me run a big race! Anyways, Friday night, after work, we drove up to the Road Runner Sports store in Columbia, MD to pick up our “packets” for the Baltimore 10 Miler. I put the quotes around packets because, well, it was really just the bib. We get our swag and two free beers after the race. I love beer and I love free beer even more.

I’m looking forward to a week of easier training and the race to be over, but have to keep my eye on the Marine Corp Marathon on October 31. Training is going to have to really ramp up once this race is over and after I have a few days off ;-).

In other news, while at the Road Runner Sports store, I scored a sweet Orange CamelBak. I’ve been wanting one of these for a while now and with the discount I get for being VIP at Road Runner Sports, I got it for $36!

Check it out…

I ran with it tonight and loved it! I was a bit concerned that it would jostle around and annoy me, but I was quite surprised that it stayed in place and did it’s job. Speaking of tonight’s run, wow, it was rough. I think the temperature was still around 89° when I left, and even though it cooled down some while I was out there, it was still HOT! I guess I don’t really mind running in the heat, my body will adjust, but before it begins to adjust it royally screws up my time! Check out how bad my timing was tonight over on my RunKeeper profile (link).
