The weather has been mostly cold and a few days with snow and hail but that's all melted away. I had a 14 mile run scheduled this past weekend I wanted to run it on Saturday cause the sun was out but the temps never reached above 29 and I was feeling sick (fighting a cold again ugh!) so I decided to make it a rest day. On Sunday the temps were better, the sun was still out and my son was at his friends house, so I set out in the afternoon for my run. It was an interesting run cause the most I had ran outside since I've been in Idaho is 7 miles so I knew the route would all be new. This actually made me feel a little uneasy so I ran with my phone just in case. The first mile kinda sucked cause I really had to use the restroom (probably do to the FRS Energy drink I chugged before hand) and the first two I ran to were closed! There was finally a porta potty near the second one that was closed that was absolutely disgusting but I had no choice. After I got that outta the way and thought I was finally in a running zone I noticed my mileage wasn't moving on my garmin. I must have not started it at some point so I ran for about a mile before I even noticed.
Overall I felt great for the 14 miles except for mile 13 where I was all of a sudden starving. I took one Clif Shot gel at mile 6 so it could have been that I needed another or that there was someone bbqing burgers in the park that smelled delicious. I tried the Tri-Berry Nuun during the run which I loved and can't believe I haven't used it before.
I didn't take my camera with me this time but I saw some men fishing and some ducks swimming along the river. I saw some beautiful houses along the course and a huge mansion up on a hill. I'll have to take a picture of it to show you guys next time.
After my run I rushed home to drink some yummy post run chocolate milk, stretch and foam roll, then take a shower cause I had to go visit my family.
I got this in the mail today....
