I got in my miles today! Felt like a slacker after (albeit, being productive) not running on Monday, my day off! Such is life. Tuesday morning was great. Beautiful morning, beautiful run... such a perfect (almost) fall day.
Tuesday was also awesome for some different reasons -- as you know, I was accepted as a Sweat Pink ambassador -- still super pumped, still excited to be a part of such a great community. And, as you'll see below, I also won some sweet stuff from Sparkly Soul! They held a contest via their Pinterest page, where you had to post a photo of you sportin' one of their awesome sparkly bands. To my excitement and surprise, I found out via Instagram that I won! Talk about a great day! Cannot wait to get some new bands in the mail for an extra little bit of colorful, sparkly fun.
Wednesday: 3 miles + strength
Wednesday was the finally arriving Fall Activities Fair. Like I said, it was supposed to be the week before but due to projected storms (that never came), we postponed it until this week. Being on campus from 6 am to 4 pm is not conducive to having any desire to run. The end.

Exhausted from Wednesday, and very happy to have not run either of the two days. Felt like such a slacker this week, but knew that after my 12-day on Wednesday, I really needed the break. I knew it was justified at least, even if I felt terrible for not getting it done.
Friday: 3 miles

Before I headed to LA for the weekend, I wanted to get in a few miles to "make up" for missing out on Wednesday... and Monday... and blerg. There's a route that involves a hill straight up pretty much the last mile, and I've been eye-balling it forever, and finally had the courage to push myself to the hill. Nothing like a hill to give you a little motivation, huh? The hill was tough, but the run was pretty great overall.
I also won a pizza for lunch! The awesome team at Crowdrise does a series of trivia, random questions and the like via their Twitter account -- and, well, I had happened to win on Thursday! Many thanks to Crowdrise for the delish lunch! Just what I needed before a flight.

Didn't get in the full 6, but had an awesome 5 miles around my hometown. I was honestly looking most forward to not running in humidity -- what a concept! Woke up at the crack of dawn (thank you, Eastern Standard Time) and was out the door before 7 am and before anyone else in my house had even blinked. The morning was perfect -- Southern California sun, no humidity, and low 70s. Talk about a heavenly run! Got to run down near my high school, all the way around near some old friends' housing tracks, and back home through my neighborhood. Looking forward to a few more runs like that when I go home for Christmas. No humidity is a beautiful thing.
How was your week? Do you try and "make up" miles, or call them a loss? Do you run while traveling, even for a quick weekend?
