Our new pack member - she came with the name Belit but we are going to call her Bailey.  We are adopting her from a friend who is overextended right now.

Happy Rattlesnake Friday!

In the field all day - no workout and no blog time but I did find this:

Busy day but I will work to get to inspires (you all rock in my world though). I overslept my mid-week longer run but will hopefully be able to run tonight.

Here is a baby racer from my most recent SnakeTalk blogpost (http://snaketalk.wordpress.com/):

Run #1
  • 31m 26s
  • 3.50 miles

Run to the Brain Therapist - http://www.strava.com/activities/77930984

Run back to office from the Brain Therapist - http://www.strava.com/activities/77951776

Check it out - 190.4 lbs!!!  I have lost over 20 lbs since March!  Finally getting back to a training weight.  I can manage the 180-190 range but will look to get to 178 for a winter marathon.  I still have a ways to go but I am 10 lbs BELOW from the dreaded 200!

We need a snake to celebrate! How about this baby Black Ratsnake?

Brutal run - it was a lot hotter than I thought and I had to slog through the last two miles. Good heat training run!!! http://www.strava.com/activities/77733049/overview

Lesson learned today:  Treat your body like shit over the weekend with beer and crap food and your runs will suffer.  I was so dehydrated today that I almost didn't finish my run.  Time to do a 100 onces/day water challenge with myself.  This way even if I have some beers, I will recover quicker. 

Found this around mile 4 and it was a life saver:


I decided to take a picture of me sweaty after the run back in my office.  My office mates have got to love me to tolerate me after lunch runs:
