It's HOT out there!

Today's Food:

Morning Snack was some Grape Nuts mixed with raisins and Anderson's mini pretzel sticks.
Lunch was a Flat Out brand wrap with grilled chicken and fresh greens in it. Sides were sauteed (in EVOO) carrots, green and red peppers, and diced tomatoes, sprinkled with dry basil.
Dinner was a Steamfresh meal: Tomato Penne with Chicken. The side was a fresh greens salad with carrots and 1 cut up Babybel Light cheese. Fat free ranch on side for dipping purposes.
Post Run/Bedtime Snack was a small bowl of Fiber One Caramel Delight cereal and the other 1/2 of the orange from breakfast

 Today's Workout:

It's my first day of blogging about my journey to the Marine Corps Marathon and of course, it's the hottest day of the Summer. But, I absolutely refused to let my first run for my blog be a treadmill one, so out I went along with my 2 crazy running partners. We met up at the local high school to run the Martha's Run course. It's a notoriously tough 10K course and I had 5 hilly miles on my schedule so we agreed that we would either cut it short or walk a portion of it. We cut down on Beadling and then did an out and back on Cedar to finish it up.  I was a sweaty mess at the end. As soon as my GPS hit 5 miles, I decided to walk rather than continue the madness. My two friends actually continued to run but I was just done at that point. I took that opportunity to drink my Gatorade/water mix and to think about what I just accomplished.

I feel so lucky to have these two women in my life. The three of us did a long run when it was 4° (yes that is FOUR degrees) about a year and a half ago and here we were tonight, running in temps that were in the 90's. Yes, we are crazy runners indeed. And I am so blessed to have friends who are just as crazy as me...

For the record, I also did two On Demand workouts at home: 6 pack Ab Burn and Ab Flat Blaster.
