My love on the run

Solid proof that it is doable to capture happiness in a picture. :)

I tried an easy 3.3 miles / 5.3K last Saturday. Lordie and Diddy were happy to accompany me. :) Amazing blue sky, freezing weather, sunny...I couldn't stop smiling. :)

Plus yesterday (Sunday) I tried my luck at a long run. Runningbuddy A and I found a paved 5K path around a lake, and decided to run these 5K laps to see if The Foot would hold up. If The Foot would bug me again, I could just go back to the car, and A could finish the long run. After a little over 5 laps, 16.3 miles / 26.1K we decided to call it quits. :) When we headed out for the run I figured I would be perfectly happy if The Foot would be okay for 9.4 miles / 15K. I couldn't believe that I had actually finished the long run - without limping, crawling, etcetera due to The Foot. :) Today there's a bit of a tired feeling going on in The Foot, but I guess that's okay. :) I celebrated with sushi! :)

Hmmm...sushi...that brings me to 'post long run' snacks. :) What's your favorite 'post long run' snack?

Love the photos! I often run laps to make logistics easier for long runs. Good to hear your foot was fine.
Post long run: Chocolate milk and salty potato chips.

Loving the photos!

Great job on the long run and no foot troubles.

Post runs food changes with the season. Currently I just want "real" food after running. Doesn't really matter what.

haha doesn't matter, anything with calories to be found in the (very empty) fridge will do :)

After the Miami marathon on Sunday I had some incredible cuban food, mojito and chocolate cake:) Definitely the best post marathon race food I've had.
