Monday - 4 miles
Today should have been a non-running day, but I can't run tomorrow. Despite some soreness from yesterday's pilates, tonight's run felt good and I really picked it up toward the end. Tomorrow I'm supposed to attend a weight-lifting class with a co-worker during lunch. If I don't write for the next week, it's because I've pulled every muscle in my wimpy arms.

I love listening to podcasts when I run, and MarathonTalk in particular. It's a free podcast put out by a couple of speedy Brits who know what they're talking about and enjoying talking all things running. It really makes me feel like I'm part of larger running community and, strangely, it keeps me focused while I'm running. I also appreciate that they're funny without being a non-stop comedy routine; I used to try running to CarTalk, and I actually stopped mid-run a few times because I was laughing so hard.

cause the race results still aren't posted. Loved the race, but at this rate about all I'll remember are the spiffy gloves all the runners got- and that I promptly lost.
