Rainy Day

Today was my "long" run day which is a pretty short 8 miler.. but I am cool with my little miles. I broke my second metatarsal off from my foot after dropping a piano on it in October and I am building back up.

It was SO hard to get going today. I was so tired I just wanted to sleep. When I finally started running it began to rain and my left hip started acting up - why do old injuries hurt more in rainy weather? - that is so weird. Eventually I ended up walking for most of it because of my hip. Then I got a little lost when I followed an animal trail thinking it was a human trail but I eventually found my way out. :)

Ended up only doing 7 miles... even though it sucked a little I got some pretty photographs.



  1. Gorgeous photos!! That is crazy that the old injuries come back when it rains. Great run today even though you wanted to sleep:)
    I got my foam roller at a runners store....I think bb&b would have it too! I totally recommend might help your hip out big time!

  2. I can't believe you dropped a piano on your foot in October and are already running. Great job. Don't be too hard on yourself, I wouldn't say 7 miles is "little miles," almost everyone I know can't run a block : )

  3. Loved your favorites list!! P.S. Where is your favorite place to go snowboarding?

  4. I say 7 is a great number! Runners are so hard on themselves...others may still be sitting on the couch whining about how they were injuried. You are out there doing 7 SEVEN miles. Nice job!

    Great photos!

  5. Thanks everyone! :) :) I agree that at least I am out there getting some miles!! All of you are very inspirational for me!!

    My favorite place to go snowboarding in California is Mammoth Mountain and in Utah is Brighton! :D Do you ski or board Lauren?
