Yesterday I went to a fun run in SOUTH BEACH as part of the Women’s Health Run10Feed10 10 city challenge!
It was really small, but a lot of fun! My friend Jillian that I work with came and we ran the whole thing together. I can’t believe I have been running on the treadmill for all of these months and depriving myself of this:
In case you were wondering, Apple Fanatics are as crazy as runners. Up and ready to go at 7am to get the newest iPhone?!
Even though it was supposed to be a 10K, when we got back to the start (it was an out and back route), they were saying it was actually 6.5 miles…. and my Nike+ said that it was 6.9 miles. So who knows. I have learned that I am not an anal about numbers runner (yet) because I’m satisfied that I ran some distance between 6.2 and 6.9 miles yesterday.
Yes, I do run with the ginormous beats headphones. It is crazy, but I love them. I’ve tried every type of earbud out there and they just don’t work. The beats do, and I look cool. Right? Yeah ok. I thought it was so awesome that a small fun run had food for after the race. Then I found out it was ceviche… at 8am, I passed. Oh, South Beach.
Overall I had a great time and re-remembered (made up word) how much nicer it is to run outside instead of on a treadmill.
After the run, Jeff and I went to the mall to pick up a few things for a wedding for my bffs Jess & Nick in New Jersey next week. I can’t wait!!!! There was also sushi involved. And about 300 pieces of edamame, I can’t control myself around that stuff. Somehow by 9:30 Jeff was doing homework and I was unconscious sleeping on the couch. Look up the meaning of party animals. It’s a good picture, no?
Today was a jumble of errands and grocery shopping and strength training (LEGS ouch!) and Jingo walking and house cleaning and laundry and other various Sunday items 🙂
Which do you like better, treadmill or outside?
