My Weight Loss Ticker!

Sacfit Saturday!

Today on the training plan was 11 miles, Aid stations with yummy snacks to make the miles easier, good running buddies and a raffle extravaganza at the end!

I did the 11 miles with two ladies that I always have a lot of fun with - we were right on pace until the turnaround and then we kicked it up a notch! (gotta love those negative splits!!) The aid station was super good with Payday bars, Kit Kats and a bunch of other stuff I can't remember because I only choose to have the Kit Kats and the Payday chunks. Soooo good and my reward for running (the only food related rewards I allow myself).

After the run I got a really bad headache that as soon as I drank a bunch of water and got cooled down went away (I gotta learn to hydrate better!!).

Then was the raffle - Jeff won socks - not just any socks, but 9 dollar Belaga socks that we LOVE!! and I won some shot blocks in some flavors that I haven't tried before!

So random story - on the trail as I was running I found an little plastic army man and I decided he will be strapped to my shoelaces on future runs and become my pace group mascot - he will remind us to soldier on as we run!! I will have to take a picture of him for the blog!!

Edited to add the picture! He isn't strapped in and ready to go, but that will happen tomorrow!

I have looked forward to your blog all week! You have inspired me to start running (I'm up to 2 miles on the track) and I have looked up a local running group to join. Thank you and please keep posting.
