Okay my blog title is really long. Well it all describes my Saturday. I know you're probably wondering why I only got 1.5 hrs of sleep. Although I'm not quite sure I do think it had something to do with the vitamin I took yesterday evening. I took it around 6:30 pm. but that was still too late. You see it's a One A Day 'Energy' Vitamin. I've opted for these vitamins when I've almost had enough Iron, but still just under my goal per my Nutrition Tracker. I tell you I just couldn't fall asleep.
When the alarm went off at 5:39am to get ready for the run I did hit the snooze button once but after that I was up and at 'em and I didn't even feel groggy. Weird but a girl needs her rest so I'm laying off those vitamins tonight.
We had beautiful weather for the 18 miler. It was funny because I get teased by the coaches for overdressing, "Hey I'm A Newbie and I don't like to be Cold!" and when the head coach sent out an email reminding us that the weather would be warmer, he also included "don't overdress". So I made sure to point out this morning that I followed instructions and I was glad I did cause though I felt the chill of the air I was doing some serious sweating and I loss a lot of sodium. It was literally on my face and neck. You could see and feel it. Amazing how our bodies are made.
I got in some stretches after the run and then it was time to go home and get dressed for I had an opportunity to volunteer at Sparkpeople.com's table at today's HealthExpo. Yep that vitamin was still working. Back to the Expo. It was a lot of fun. I got to meet so many people and help give away a lot of information on how Sparkpeople changes lives and tell how it's changed mine. KGirl29 also volunteered and was so much fun to work with. I probably got a burst of energy just being around such happiness. (OH and I'll give her another shout out for reaching Onederland!) WooHoo. She took some funny pictures (Check them out). It was a blast working with her Coach Stepf, and SP_Beth. Don't have have like the coolest jobs?
Well a little before 4 pm the vitamin stopped working and now well I'm pooped but still had to take time to write this blog while all is fresh on my mind.
Thanks for reading!
