First, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who commented on the post about fuel for long runs. I'll begin experimenting soon.
Second, since it sounds like there are lots of strawberry lovers, I had to share yesterday's bounty. They are so yummy! Too bad it's the end of strawberry season!
So, I've concluded I enjoy blogging and it's going to stick around! I've been reading lots of blogs for several years. The first series were weight loss/fitness type blogs. Next, I added in some knitting/craft blogs. Then food/cooking and most recently: RUNNING! I was never one to comment on posts, I just enjoyed reading them for information, motivation or enjoyment. I started searching running blogs for music playlists and quickly kept adding different blogs to my Google Reader. I really enjoyed reading race recaps and hearing about how people were training. So, eventually, I thought, what the hell, I'll sign up for account, it should be good motivation.
Now that I actually starting commenting on people's blogs - it's even more fun to read them! I never thought I'd really have anything interesting to say on a blog, but figured I'd give it a shot. What I've discovered is I just enjoy doing it for myself. I started a list (have I mentioned I like lists?) of all kinds of posts that will be upcoming...Don't know that they will be very interesting to anyone else, but writing the posts will be a great way to document the memories for myself.
Coming soon, look for posts about my previous races (who cares if it's a race recap a few months after the fact), my history with running (from long before I ever thought I'd be participating), my forgotten first race from a few years ago, some music posts and lots of other random stuff.
For today, I'm glad it's Friday, my rest day. I have a tight left quad muscle (too many squats in the strawberry patch?) and don't think a run would be enjoyable. Hopefully a day of rest is all it needs!
