Running wise, life has been good. My shin splints seem to be staying at bay. I did hurt my arch randomly at my desk this week. So weird. I got up and it felt like I tore my plantar fascia. I used some KT Tape and it was better with some ice. I was super dehydrated one day this week so maybe that was part of the problem. I did get a 6.6 mile run last weekend. Felt good. It was the longest run of my training so far. I also ran 7.2 miles this morning. It was a beautiful run. I used my new amphipod water bottle thing. It helped me. I also got a running visor. It was drenched when I got done. Like completely soaked. Thanks for Running Etc. for the visor (More on that later). My legs were a bit tire at the end but that is expected when your running your longest run ever. I did have a tender nipple from boogie boarding yesterday and getting sunburned. It was my first bloody nipple from running (I have had one from boogie boarding).

I also became an Official Ambassador for Running Etc. What does this mean? Well for me, my goal is to run more races aka keep losing weight. It also means I get to represent the best local running store in Hampton Roads when I do run. I think I was probably twice the weight of every other ambassador but somebody does have to represent the Clydesdale Division at races, right? Last night we had our kick-off meeting. It was fun meeting everyone. I am definitely not the pro-typical running or am in the in crowd but I look forward to getting to know everyone better.
At home. Everything is good. Lori has a few more weeks off and Avery keeps growing and learning. Next week we have a vacation. We also took Avery to the beach yesterday. She enjoyed it. We all did really.
