Fly by posting!

Super excited for today!! It is SEVENTY degrees outside, which I haven't seen in at least six or seven months. We don't do transitions too well here in's either 30 degrees or 70, but no 50's or anything in the middle. I was going to run before work today (didn't have to go in until 11), but it was only 45 degrees when I woke up, and I wanted to take advantage of the heat wave this afternoon. I ran in shorts and a sports top (tank top type thing?) and I was SWEATING when I was done. After only four miles! I know I sweat all winter while running, but there's something different about actually being sweaty and seeing it on your skin! I've missed it.

4.04 miles in 28:41, avg pace of 7:06

Sooooo I was flying because I wanted to squeeze in my run between getting home from work and having to pick my mom up from work (one of our cars died a couple weeks!). The phone was ringing as I walked in the door, so that was perfect timing. I've been hustling around, showering, and doing some final cleaning before I leave to pick up my boyfriend up at the airport! He lands in about twenty minutes, so I wanted to say hi before I jet (anyone noting all my flying references?? hahah I at least make myself laugh, if no one else!) off to the airport to pick him up. He's only here until Sunday evening, but tomorrow is supposed to be gorgeous, so we'll be able to get a nice long run in together. Yay!

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend, whatever your plans may be, and since I might not get a chance, GOOD LUCK to those running Boston on Monday, especially The Running Laminator and Frayed Laces! You guys are going to rock Boston!!


  1. Have fun this weekend! It's supposed to be beautiful here in MD too!

  2. I love sweating! Not the gross kind, when you're wearing real clothes, but the nice cleansing kind.

    And thanks for the running support :) I'll let you know how it goes!

  3. I love a good sweat. Makes you feel like you ran harder huh?

  4. I'm glad you had a successful run today! The warm weather nearly killed me. I'm not used to sweating at all, ahhh!

    Have fun with the boyfriend this weekend!
