This weekend, I ran the Starbucks Run for Women 10k on Saturday and then the HM clinic group run 9 km on Sunday. I felt pretty good while running both. The weather was perfect. No small feat on Saturday when, up until 30 minutes before the race, it was pouring. I'm not kidding, I was actually starting to wonder if it would be a smart run to do. It was raining that hard. Here's some of the girls and I with the firemen that were handing out the bling at the finish line.
And here's the link to the race course itself. I've been told the elevation doesn't look that bad but, trust me, the hills were real butt blasters. connect.garmin.com/activity/19196497
On Sunday, my HM clinic and I were scheduled to run 9kms (LSD). I was happily surprised to see so many from the day before out to run again. Literally, I was giddy with joy. During our run, I dealt with something that I'm REALLY not comfortable with.... twice. Two of my buddies gave me compliments on my weightloss. The second, however, was very specific. "Your ass is looking great". I just grinned and said thank you. (In case you're wondering why PEHASS2/Paul won't mind reading this, the compliment came from a woman) Personally, since I get to see it w/o its spandex/lycra covering, I don't see the big deal BUT it was still nice to hear that my hard work is paying off. I have, however, noticed less jiggle when I run. I like that.
For my next trick, I'd like to have defined arms and less tricep wiggle.
