Lead Legs

Marathon was last Sunday.

Come Wednesday I was yearning to run. To burn some energy, to test my legs, to work off some of the food and drink I had greedily been indulging in.

So I laced up my sneakers and set out to do a little recovery run down the beach path of Newport. How could that possibly suck?

It didn't. At all.

My legs were confused. Heavy. I felt really stiff the first .50 miles. Strange aches and pains. But I hung in there and 3.25 humid miles later, I stopped. I smiled. I realized that running makes me happy, makes me feel good.

Yesterday was my first run back in AZ. Ugh. 5 miles of heat and sweat. I felt barfy at the end, but it's not going away anytime suck it up Linds.

Soooo, when's the next race?


  1. You should register for Seattle!!! And run slow so you can run with me, and help me make my sub 2 half! Let's make that happen ;)

  2. I do not like running in the heat, I can't imagine what running in AZ would be like. Chicago in the summer is enough for me!

    1. Ugh, I know! We just wake up at 4:30 am and run in the dark. It sucks!
