Considering that it was fueled by late-night pizza and ice cream, and the fact that the straw on my Camelbak froze at mile 8 (luckily it thawed), yesterday’s long run went really well. I ran 8 miles to my friend Courtney’s house and joined her for 11 more! Running with friends is really the best thing in the world!
What did I do before I had my ProCompression Marathon socks?
The afternoon involved a little light weight lifting – in the form of bowling with my sisters and the cutest little boys ever!
Yes, I used the 8 pound ball. And No, I’m not ashamed – that thing is heavy! 🙂
