Not entirely unhappy with my time. It was my 3rd marathon this month. Lisa ran the 25k. Too bad we couldn't start together! Would have been nice to have some company!

I won't do this race again. They cleared out the last water stops after mile 18. That left me and the other few people on the course with no support for 8 miles. What if we needed help? Sure, I had water, but I know the guy behind me was really struggling at times (he had his wife with him, so he was good but still). No bathrooms on the route at all either. I guess they just assume that the people of Birch Bay don't mind people peeing in their yards. I get that it was a low frills race, but ONE porta potty, please? Just one!

Still had a good time, though. The people were really nice and I appreciated what they did do. I just didn't think it was the best race I've run, and I've run a few other SUPER low frills races for no cost that had more support.

Ran with the half marathoners today. Ended up helping my slowest runner pace a 3:1. I think she did better today! Marathon tomorrow!

Ran home from the store where I met Roy. Together he biked, I ran another 4 miles. It's 60 degrees out! I wore a tank and running skirt! GLORIOUS!

  • Yoga
  • 1h 30m

Bikram Yoga, to be precise. I think I sweated out stuff I ate four years ago. I have never sweat so much in my LIFE! I felt very bendy and clean when I was done. I actually was pretty proud of how well I did. I was able to do some of all of the moves, and all of some of the moves. I even was able to do that thing where you sit on your knees, then you spread them and sit on your butt, then you lay completely back with your knees still bent, and another thing where you fold completely in half and put your forhead on your knees and roll onto your neck.

I don't even want to KNOW what I look like doing either of these things, but I did enjoy the class. It was 105 degrees in the studio and I think it's the first time I have been truly warm since July.
