Tired legs

Miles today: 8.25 miles, 1:19
Miles in 2013: 526.99 miles

So this is what they mean by long run on tired legs. I don't know if it was because I ran outside in the 90 degree weather yesterday afternoon or just the higher number of miles this week, but damn. It was not an easy 8 miles. I just never felt into it and if it hadn't been for chatting with a new runner friend, (who is also running Chicago!!) I may have just slowed down even more and walked. I checked my watch about 1000 times while my hamstrings were just unhappy with me. Made for a run that seemed much longer than 8 miles. My foam roller is going to get plenty of use this week....

The main thing getting me through was the promise of bagels and juice at the end of the run. It is the little things. 

The big thing is that my sister is in town from Louisiana. 

Busy hanging out with her and her cute little bump.

Hope everyone is having an amazing weekend!
