Thursday Thoughts, XIII, Before Bloomsday

1. 12k on Sunday with 50,000+ runners and all I can think about is…

“Where am I going to spit?”

In almost every other way I’m a very proper lady. But when I run, I don’t know why, I have to spit. I honestly spit at least every 5 minutes. I’m pretty good at it (now), but I anticipate running Bloomsday in about 75 minutes. That’s spitting at least 15 times in the midst of 50,000 people and I’m certain to hit someone at some point.

This alone is really stressing me out.

2. It’s supposed to rain on Sunday and I’m not excited about that but at least it won’t be hot.



I ran an “easy” 2.4 miles yesterday in 80 degrees and thought I was going to die. At least I was rocking every article of pink clothing I own…

3. 8 things runners should know about coffee. And it’s all good. I hope there’s a Dutch Bros in Spokane…

4. And cue the carbo-loading…


+2 of these Carob Oatmeal Cookie Bars.

5. I promise to stop talking about running…until I start training for another race.
