Slug Slime Shimmers

Welcome to the newest Tall Mom Bloggy Pack Members!!!

Did you know that when the sun hit the Slug Slime on the pavement it shimmers? Sparkles like glitter.. Well it does and it is pretty cool..

I felt a bit like a Slug yesterday, not wanting to run AGAIN without an Ipod. It is so quiet being stuck with my own thoughts on the run. But I got out there and did 4.1 miles of leafy goodness!! The first 3 miles were GREAT!! The last mile I felt like I was running in sand, very WEIRD.

Tomorrow at this time I will be in RRCA coaching class. I am sure I will come out much wiser :) One can hope right.. I am trying to pull together a HIGH FIVE for all you busting out major miles on 10-10-10. Please comment or send me an email so I don't miss you..

I have NO PLAN for Portland spectating yet. I hope to pull that together ASAP so I can give all my buddies an idea of where I will be. Details soon :)

HAPPY THURSDAY!!

Your right! For something kinda yucky, it looks pretty when the sun hits it. File that under: Things you notice while running withOUT music. heehee

I'll be running with Hubbs at our local Fall Foliage Classic like weekend. (him 5k, me 10) FYI - S'ghetti girl has been learning to use the sewing machine and making headbands. She is going to be selling them at our fall festival. I'm so proud of her for working hard! (Had to brag her up a little!)

Leave that iPod at home more often! I swear to you! It will get easier and I swear I became a better runner. You have to focus on yourself and it helps you work on what you need to ;)

No racing plans this weekend - good luck to all the 10/10/10 peeps! And good luck to you in your class!!!!

track coach and adorable wife said...

I'm sure I will see you in Portland somewhere! Coach is dying to meet the infamous "Tall Mom" that I have been talking about for months. Won't he be embarassed when you are taller than him! Good luck at your coaching class, don't forget a pencil!

I just got certified this past month. If Patti and Warren are your instructors, tell them hello for me. Take lots of notes (the test is MOSTLY from your notes, not the book - hint, hint), and soak it all in. I learned SO much!! Have fun!

Amy said...

I'm running the Goodlife Victoria Marathon on 10-10-10. It's my first marathon! Eek!
