1. Okay. So confession. The one veggie I REALLY dislike is beets. Several of you commented to find a way to like beets. I will admit I have continued to try them as an adult and they still suck. So, it will be a challenge for me too–I will find a way to hide beets. It may take a while, but I will work on it…and of course share my results with you.
2. My last long run before Big Sur is the weekend. Holy Shit. Where did the time go? I cannot believe I’m heading to Cali in 3 weeks!!! But first…the scary 20 miler is this weekend. I say scary because last year my 20 miler wasn’t so great. I had to walk a lot and struggled with my breathing (gotta love the South and its pollen). I am a little nervous because it’s going to be warmer than it has been for any of our runs this Saturday. And, my legs hurt. I don’t know if it’s mental or my body is just tired from training for the past few months and a long weekend of driving. But my hamstring, calves, hips, etc are all bugging me. I am hoping that tomorrows rest day will help.
3. I had planned on using the race last weekend (I paid for the Knock out Cancer 5K in Atlanta but couldn’t make it) as a virtual race but seeing as I didn’t really record anything that didn’t work. You can imagine how excited I was to see an Easter Virtual Race! April race found! I know it’s not quite the same but it will have to do for this month. Run with Jess is hosting this:
