Eat your heart out Raul Ibanez!

Did 3.5 miles outside today. Had to wait for YMCA childcare today so went waaaaay too late in this heat. at 9:30 it was already over 90 with 90% humidity. Hot. Not a great run, walked a lot of intervals (10th mile increments). My hamstrings are still tight, but am so thankful to be able to run. After my run (/walk) I went in the gym to stretch, situps, planks and then added 20 min. on the spin bike so I could go hard for a bit (couldn't outside running). Felt good and salty :)


The most successful part of my run was that for the first time in my 41 years I tried, and on that first try, performed a perfect farmer blow! I had forgotten tissues, and am still getting over a cold. I was alone on the trail, so I went for it.  To tie in baseball for the second time in a week, Raul Ibanez is the KING of the snot rocket. OMGosh, the Phillies left fielder is constantly doing it, right on national TV, right on the field where the other 17 players are running around. I couldn't help but think of him when I did mine, ha ha. This may come in handy when (if???) it gets cold again...

Kristen, I saw your post on #askthebooth. It is great to see that there are Phillies fans in Savannah! I grew up in Philly and have been a Phillies fan all my life. I raised my 3 children (a little older then yours) to be Phillies fans even though they grew up in North Jersey among Mets and Yankees fans. My daughter just moved to Savannah to do volunteer for a year. Are there any "Phillies" bars in Savannah where she could watch some of Postseason games among friends?

P.S. Good luck in your half marathon!
