6 miles easy
9:28 avg pace
A nice, easy run to shake out the legs for tomorrow’s dress rehearsal (that’s how I like to think of the last 20-miler before the taper). It looks like the weather is going to cooperate too – high of 59, low of 48…that’s shorts-wearing weather!
Time for a random edition of Friday Favorites!
Saint Joseph’s University
Oh, I know this is so obvious. But what would Friday Favorites be without one of my all-time favorite things?! Brief background for newer readers: SJU is where Matt and I went to college (and met). Our dog is named Hawk (after the SJU mascot). My brother is also a SJU alum. We are slightly fanatical about what I consider the best school on earth. The proof is in the pictures…
Nuts, right? My sister-in-law says it’s a cult.
Wawa is a convenience store (think upscale 7-11, minus the funny smell that most 7-11s have) found in PA, NJ, MD, VA, and DE. Wawa is awesome. Good coffee, no surcharge ATMs, and actual healthy food options (although I often find myself in there getting ice cream). Sorry to the folks outside of these 5 states…you are missing out.
I think I’m officially giving up on wearing heels. OK, I rarely where heels to begin with but I’ve been wearing flats to work for the past couple of weeks. Yesterday I wore my boots, with a small heel, and I could not wait to get them off. Not to mention my ankles were wobbly all day. They are just no good for you….they are torturous! Jen did a post a few months ago about high heels, bringing up some great points why we should not be wearing them. At least I don’t have many heels to swear off…luckily my standard uniform of Uggs, flip flops, and running shoes are all flat!
Is anyone obsessed with their college like me?
Any thoughts on heels? Yay or nay?
