Random Running Tip – I sometimes hold on to those space blankets they give you after a race. No, I don’t make Ben use them to sleep with (even though he does steal the covers!). I fold them up and sometimes use them as a throw away warm-up blanket before my next race. Yesterday I used an old sweatshirt that was on it’s last hole-y leg.
A new car battery and $100+ later, I hit up Trader Joes hoping to get my hands on some pumpkin butter. It’s my favorite seasonal item (and that’s saying a lot with all the goodies they have)!!!
But, they don’t have it in yet. Boo.
But, this may be a sign I shouldn’t give up on running just yet…
Anyways, I wanted to share some Chicago Marathon news from the weekend.
The saddest news is a 35-year-old firefighter died while running Chicago yesterday.
And the world’s most amazing woman gave birth yesterday after completing the Chicago Marathon. I don’t want to do either of those things, let alone do them on the same day!
