Anyway, I did manage to catch up on some half marathon talk and gave my card to one of the lovely ladies so we could run together. I say that's a win! I want to meet new people that like the things I do and doesn't question me for waking me up so early to run. It's my goal.
Also.. I signed up for my first official marathon!! I mean, HALF marathon. I'm not ready to do a full one, yet. It'll be in at the end of October when my training plan ends. I have 5 days between the end of the plan and the actual race, I'm glad there's some wiggle room. I also got $15 off by signing up early, so that's a win! I'll get a finisher's medal and a tech shirt. Plus, bragging rights. I'm very excited!!
The goal for today's run was to stay in zone 2 (HR: 115-135) for 30 minutes. It was an ok attempt. MJ kept pulling on her leash since we usually run faster but it was annoying and I had to keep slowing down and up. ALSO, we walked through half a block of sprinklers. COLD water in your face and white t-shirt? Yes, please.
The average HR came out to 130 but here, picture:

We took a picture at the beginning and I just hope my hair didn't ruin it. It's in between stages right now and it looks cra-cra. I'm happy I got up on time, I hate missing out on runs. Tomorrow's bike/strength training. I also hope to get a short walk in the morning with the dogs. They need it, both are running around like crazy chickens.
