1. I woke up Saturday morning a little late (7:30ish), let the dogs out, tidied up the kitchen and got T Junior some breakfast. Normal morning. Later, while getting ready for the Jelly Bean Virtual 5K, I was surprised that I didn’t have welts all over my legs. And then I was like, Oh yeah, that was a dream.
The dream: I was running the Mercer Island Half (which I did run last year), and I was in some random community center locker room freaking out about the welts all over my legs. My mom was there, I think. She was telling me that whatever it was, I got it from Bennie (my dog that I own now, who does not have welts). I was wearing a running skirt and you could see bumps all over my legs. I missed the start of the race and had to run down countless flights of stairs outside to get to it. Then I woke up.
Anyway, you had to be there.
2. After the heat and stupidity of the Jelly Bean Virtual 5K was all over on Saturday, I realized that I actually did pretty good. I mean, I felt awful and still managed a 9:27 pace for 5 miles. Just to clarify: I wasn’t unhappy about my time or pace, just about how dumb I was on things I know (like bringing water, running in the morning, etc.).
3. I like me some compression socks! I was hot, though, which makes me a little nervous for June 25, but hopefully I’ll be used to the warmer weather by then.
