Slow run + a new do + a future runner.

I got up at 5 this morning and ran my 4 miler. I was really slow...like really slow. But, I consider it a recovery run, so I'm not worried. Tomorrow I'm doing 4x100s. That'll be fun. I felt good during today's run. I could have gone faster, but it's all good.

Guess what I did...I got my hair cut!
It's a little short, but I really like it. I chopped off about 6+ inches, thinned it out, and got it highlighted. I was wanting it long enough to put into two little pigtails for when I run, but I think it's just a little too short for that. Boy, am I glad I got some bondibands from Kayte cause I think they're gonna work perfect to keep my hair outta my face while I run.

Ooh, and guess what...on Thursday I will have run 200 miles so far this year! How cool is that?! I don't think I've run 200 miles ever before in my life, let alone in 2 months.

My future runner! :)

The hair is perfect, Cathy! SOOO Cute... you remind me more and more of high school Cathy in your pictures now... it's kinda crazy. PS- I personally think that just starting your run a little slower (first miles are usually slower) is enough of a warmup when you are doing as many miles as you are. If you were someone who only ran like 1 mile a day, then walking might be an appropriate warmup... but I think you're way past that! But I'm no pro---just an opinion from what I've seen and done in the past.
