12 Mile Run



Woo Hoo!! Last long run before the big race!  Amy and I ran 12 miles yesterday in some crazyyyyy wind!  I know Garmin only says 9 mph wind, but it felt like 20 in some spots!  I’m hoping for comfortable temperatures next weekend with NO WIND 🙂

I walked a little at the end, but overall I was pretty happy with the run.  It really is hard to run in tons of wind.  I wore a Brooks Glycerine black running skirt that I’ve only worn once.  It looks like this…



This is a picture of Amy and I from Summer 2011 when I posted about this skirt.  I haven’t worn it since because I thought the shorts underneath were uncomfortable.  I actually liked it yesterday, so I’m going to race in it next weekend.  I also wore that t shirt yesterday from 26.2 but I’m hoping to find a cute new pink shirt at the race expo to wear!


I remembered yesterday that I have this Tiffany blue nail polish!  I’m SO ready for Tiffany’s race necklace next weekend so I decided to have matching nails.


I did a few upper body “BodyPump” tracks this morning (chest, triceps, biceps and shoulders) and half of the Pop Pilates DVD.  Man that DVD is HARD!

  1. Your nails look beautiful! The countdown to race day is on!

  2. Awesome nail polish, I am also running the race and hadn’t thought of doing my nails to match!

    • Thanks! I’m getting really excited for the race! I hope the expo is great too!

      • I can walk to the expo from my office, I’m looking forward to it.

      • I think it opens today… I wonder if you are going!! I hope it’s great… I really want to find a shirt to race in!

      • I just walked back from the Expo. The tent itself doesn’t have merch to buy other than a small Fleet Feet stand with a few essentials (I bought body glide and luna bars). I think they are trying to direct all traffic up to the new Nike Georgetown store for purchases. It’s too bad since I would have bought a few race-day things like sunglasses, shorts, etc. but didn’t have time to get up there also. The Expotique was fun though, I made custom signs for my kids to hold!

      • Thanks for the info! I will have to check out the store when I get there on Saturday!!

      • Go to packet pick up first, you get a card with a code to punch in at 3 places in the Expo to try to win something.

  3. are you running a full or a half? good luck!

  4. Good Luck in your race!! Got 11 miles in today with my Mommy friends 🙂 http://www.colorushealthy.com/2013/04/runners-united-to-remember.html

  5. I had no idea that Essie made Tiffany nailpolish! I need to get some for next week, too!!
