It's seems odd that as much as I'm running, I'm finding shortcuts for very easy tasks.
I don't have to tie my shoelaces anymore. I bought Lace Locks. On regular shoes, they'd look ridiculous.
But with my mismatched running clothes and socks, the bright elastic bands fit right in.
I don't bother trying to get all the water from a cup into my mouth when running.
My hydration belts have nozzles that keep things neat. But at water station with cups, it's a whole other story. I've learned to just toss the water in the general area of my mouth. If it makes it in, great. If not, no big deal.
I'll go ahead and say it. I don't have to shave my legs for this. Hello knee-high compression socks.
So those are unexpected turns in my training.
Now that I got that out of the way, I just want to remind you it's Giving Tuesday. And here's a great chance to give and help fight blood cancer. Donate to LLS.
Meanwhile, the countdown to the McAllen Marathon continues.
Former high school water girl (really) finally running.
