Before getting sick, I successfully completed my last long run before the half marathon on Saturday...
...now it's time for the taper.
I love the taper. It's my favorite part of running.
You know, running less. :)
I wanted to show you guys this really cool thing that happens when I run a long ways. My sweat dries all funny on my face and just leaves a salt crust. You might have to click on the picture to make it bigger (does that work in blogger? I have no idea), but you can totally see the salty sweaty monster I was after the run.
Also, check out my new headband. I love it!
I usually HATE head bands, especially while running because they never seem to stay put or do what I want them to do. This one (from www.sweatybands.com ) didn't move once during the 12 mile run. I never had to touch it! AMAZING!
Yeah, it was a little pricey...I bought it on impulse while buying a pair of running shoes and didn't realize how much it cost until looking at my receipt in the car. Yipes. However, totally worth every stinking penny.
If only I could afford 100 more.
