Anything but soggy

Today was an epic weather day in Portland! Sunny, no clouds, perfect 75 degree weather. Went out for a run not sure how far I was going to go, just me and my Garmin. It was fabulous!
10 miles 7:15 pace Hoping to run below this next weekend at Helevtia :)

Did I mention that I washed my Ipod? Yes it is dead! I tried putting it in rice, it did not work. I know I can go buy an new one but, I use a shuffle for running and they changed the design and I am not a fan. Anyone have any other tricks to try to restore it?

Shout out to Amanda from Runninghood who is running the Newport Marathon in the morning and shooting for a 3:15. Good Luck!! She is a fellow Portlander :)

Last but not least, I just wanted to give some advice to any new runners or want to be runners out there. Running is a fairly simple sport, while there are a lot of gadgets out there, all you NEED are shoes. While tempting to go to the store and buy the "cutest" shoes, it is important to get your running form evaluated at a running store to see what type of shoe you need. This will help keep you from getting injured. For years I bought the cutest shoes but I am no spring chicken anymore and I have to be nice to my joints :)


  1. Wow what a great pace for a ten mile run! You are speedy, I love it. I have so many hills where I run, I never think I am until I go to a race and there are no hills and I pull it off :)

  2. Thanks for the shout out girl! How am I missing your posts?! grrr. And You will totally run a at that pace for your half. I predict that you break 1:30 or get really darn close! You go girl!!
