I thought I'd switch things up a bit with this post!
49 - the temperature when I started my run....brrrr!
1 - pair of hot pink CEP compression socks that I'm planning on wearing at IMAZ. I know the colors totally clash, but I have my reasons for wearing them (a post to come).
5 - the number of house painters that completely starred at me as I left my cul-de-sac and headed out for my run
2 - the number of dogs I encountered on the trail that I thought would jump on me/bite me because their owners did not pull their leashes tight! Ugh!!
75+ - the number of beautiful fall trees I ran by. The red, orange, brown, and green colors are sooo beautiful this time of year!
2 - the number of bathroom breaks I had to do because I didn't make the best choice for breakfast...ugh!
2 - the number of snakes I came across on the trail
1 - the number of snakes I almost stepped on because I was looking at the other one! I saw it at the last minute and did this crazy jump/skip thing over it because it completely freaked me out!
1 - the number of times I may have screamed because of that snake!
2 - the number of Hammer gels consumed. Yum!
5 - the number of Honey Stinger gels consumed. Yum, yum!
1 - the number of hours I had to run without my ipod b/c it died! I guess it's good training for IMAZ, but I really missed my music!
2:30 - the total time of my run! Woohoo!
365 - my bib number for IMAZ! For some reason, seeing my bib number made this whole thing "real." My heart seriously skipped a beat when I saw my number and I got goosebumps all over my arms!
