Summer Run Training & Nathan Giveaway

The heat is here and summer running is in full swing with temps of 90+ last week and humidity making the run tough. I am more of a summer runner than cold winter girl but this was rough! The only positive of cooler running is jacket pockets for my phone and UCAN bar! I've tried just about every belt out there and have complaints about them all! So I was excited to try the Nathan Hipster. I'm even more hapy to say that it stayed put, nice and low on my hips just like I have to wear my belts. Even on my hot, sweaty 12 miler this weekend no chafing at all.



Some wildlife sightings on my run... The turtles have been out like crazy lately. What wildlife have you seen lately?

I've also gotten back to "real" speedwork and it is actually fun! Thanks Nichole :) I'm excited to see how this training cycle goes. I'm finally running paces I haven't been able to hit in years. My leg is almost to full strength, still a little residual after racing that hilly 5K on Mother's Day but about 90% better.

This week will mean a change in training. the past few months I've had the luxury of late starts at work and O at school, not anymore. Summer break is on and she is home so no sneaking in a run while O is at school. I guess better planning will be needed on my part. She can bike with me on shorter runs but still limited with that. Moms of older kids, any tricks? I still have dance time for short runs and morning (which I prefer).

Now for the fun...I have the same Nathan pack (Hipster, SpeedShot Plus & LightBender) to give to one of you!

All opinions are my own, I was provided the Nathan gear.
