Hidee Ho! Happy Saturday

Did you run today? I did! 15 miles!

photo 4 photo 5I stayed on Staten Island and ran solo. I was excited to run the boardwalk since it’s just now completely re-opened since Hurricane Sandy last October. I tried to stay at an even 11ish minute mile pace. Well my average pace was exactly that but each split was really all over the place. Partially my Garmin gone awry, partially from photo taking and partially just me konking out in the sun during some miles and then getting invigorated in the shade for others.

I got to take a photo with my beloved bridge:

I also got to test my willpower when 12 miles into the run I had to run through this:

o-m-g!

They were setting up for a fair held each summer called “Back to the Beach”. Luckily A. I had no money on me and B. They were still setting up. Because C. I would have got a dozen zeppoles AND a bag of kettle corn and not finished running.

I realized today that there’s just 11 more weeks until the NYC Marathon.

11 more weeks!

11 more weeks!

I obsess about my marathons like it’s my wedding day. Will the weather be ok. Will my stomach be ok? Will I fuel right? What will I wear? I wish I could turn my brain off sometimes.

Today, since I had no running peeps I listened to music the entire way. My good friend Lenny has a band called The Infinite Staircase and they have a couple of great singles out on iTunes. I heard both songs while running this morning. It was awesome. You should listen to their single called The Pride. Buy it if you like. 100% of the money raised goes toward helping Sandy victims. Another great one that really keeps me running strong is this one. It’s called The Things We’ve Done

After my run I went to a surprise 40th birthday party for my longtime friend (since Jr. High) and ate too much. Then I got the doodle and took him to the park for a walk. And then I came home and bought 4 new sports bras (new styles that i’ve been wanting to try because my current style has been failing me in the chafing department) and 2 pairs of capris from Moving Comfort. I opted to try the Luna and the Divine Mesh bra styles and the Endurance capris. I hope they all fit well. But Moving Comfort has free shipping (over $50) and free returns. Score!

Questions: Do you have a favorite sports bra brand/style and capri brand/style? Do you have any good music suggestions for my running playlist? I pretend that more than 2 people read my blog so I keep asking questions. Apparently it could take 18 months to get a blogs readership to spike. Good thing I enjoy this. I’ll keep it up regardless. =)
