I am NOT a cap person. My biggest issue with caps is that I can NOT get them to stay on my head. The same goes for any type of head gear, with the exception of knit hats. Those I can wear, and I do readily during the cold Minnesota winters. I think I must just have an odd shaped head thanks to my pea brain. It is the only explanation I can muster.

The sky opened up late in the afternoon and rain fell from the heavens for the first time in weeks. And let me tell you that it rained cats and dogs! I began to wonder if it would end in time to get the Torchlight 5K off and running at 7:30 pm that evening. The last minute decision was that my husband would accompany me. This would mean I would not need to use the free metro transit passes that had been generously offered to us by MVTA and the Torchlight 5K. But it did mean we’d have to be creative about getting me to the start line and him to the finish line on the north side of the Stone Arch Bridge. Believe you me, it wasn’t easy.

Training Tip Tuesday: Don’t Just Foam Roll… #Rollga Instead!

Training Tip Tuesday: Don't Just Foam Roll. #Rollga Instead!

Since when did running become so labor intensive? There used to be a time when I could wake up and run. There was zero preparation needed. In fact, if I slept in my running clothes, I literally could just roll out of my bed and out the door.

These days, however, I find myself rolling out of bed to roll! In fact, I’m rolling before I roll into bed as well. I’m not exactly sure when this all became a part of my daily routine. Was it at 49? 50? 51? Whichever…it doesn’t really matter. What does matter is that if I don’t roll, I don’t run.
