On the Road Again

I did something that I've never done willingly before: Get up before dawn and run. 7 miles before 7 am. Whoo-hoo! Peaceful and cool weather. I should do that more often.

Usually, I run in the evening, but it's crunch time for me - in less than 24 hours, I'll be on a jet plane to ArkanSAW to meet E., who started our annual road trip to California yesterday.

But before I go, I still have scads of work to finish, do laundry, pack, and take out the trash and recycling. Sigh.

And you know what's happening on Saturday, June 9. Be sure to cheer for us. We'll need the support in the high altitude!

Does This Skirt Make My Butt Look Fast?: Be sure to check out Complete Running next week. I wrote a review of two of the newest running skirts on the market. I'm wearing one here from Atalanta Athleticwear.

The CEO (and two-time Ironman finisher), Heather Langendorfer, sent me her Commitment Skirt to get my thoughts on it. As you can see from the photo - I give it a thumbs-up.


  1. Believe it or not, I bought one of those Atlanta Athleticwear skirts. Me! The one who said "eff those running skirts!" hahahahaha..... I love it. Mine is black with the red shorts.

    Good luck in your relay!

  2. I mean Atalanta. I always wondered why a woman from California would name her company for an easter seaboard city.

  3. Girl, you're running too fast to get a good look at that skirt!

  4. Fast! Very Fast!

    Good Luck in Tahoe! That relay looks cool...

  5. Love the skirt. Don't know if P told you, but I've got one too. As long as it's short enough to not get in my way, I love it.

    Good luck this weekend and with the relay!

  6. Either the shorts are too long or the skirt is too short. I don't like the look of "both."

    Now that you're an old married lady I was expecting you'd be getting up earlier in the morning anyway. You might as well run.

  7. 7 miles before 7 am? How many people can say they did that? Not many!

  8. Good luck with the trip and the Tahoe relay. And do look me up when you're down this way. I'm on the East Coast next week but around after that.
