Three Things Thursday

1. BRF (best running friend) MacKenna is running her first marathon! I'm so excited for her, and happy to support her and her running cause. She's running in support of Girls on the Run, which is an awesome cause to begin with. I think often how different my life would be if someone introduced me to running at an early age. She has to raise $400 in the next two weeks, and every little bit counts.
Donate here now!

2. I finally got new goggles. After the near-disaster of snapping my goggles at the start of my 140-mile journey to become an Ironman, I was not looking forward to getting back in the water. But, the only way to get better is get back on it, I suppose.


Bees like sprite 
3. My run club had a victory party for me and it was a blast! Most of the club ran 13 miles and I could only muster 10. I walked back to our start point and we barbecued and enjoyed brews ... at 9 a.m. Don't judge! The bees were insane and one stung my face, but it was an otherwise super fun time.

How nice of your running club! How rude of the bees. ;)

I'm so sorry you got stung in the face! I've been stung twice in the past two weeks--I think something weird is going on with the bees in Chicago. (Which kinda makes me afraid to go outside.) I wish they would have something like Girls on the Run when I was younger, too. I probably would have fallen in love with running at a much younger age!

Sorry to hear about you face sting! Nice job on your 10 miler so soon after your Ironman triumph!

I missed the party! You could only muster 10? Wow, I wouldn't have done 1 mile.
