Yesterday was probably my last double until after the race Saturday.
I have to admit I am a little glad to have the race coming up. I really enjoyed my run yesterday morning ~ after I got out there and started. When I first woke up I was thinking that laying in bed seemed momentarily nicer.
But once I was running I was so glad I ran!

Soaking wet baby groundhog
My evening run was the opposite. I couldn't wait to get going and then after about 2 miles when the hills really get going and going and going, I could not wait to be done! I didn't walk but I really wanted to. Dead Legs!
I was slightly revived when LBM and I saw this little critter in the path. I felt so bad for him. LBM gave him a handful of the Lucky Charms he brought for his snack. I don't know if groundhogs eat Lucky Charms but It helped LBM be able to not take the little critter home.
Come to think of it, he looked a lot like Little Critter you know from the story books. Minus the blue eyeshadow and clothes.
Back to the run. You can tell from the evening "after" shot that I look a lot more tired than I did in the morning and I don't think it was just the longer run.
100 runs maybe catching up to me.
Run #57 ~ 6.5 / 53:13
We were greeted happily after our run. The dogs were ready to eat up whatever snacks LBM had left uneaten in his seat. They are such helpers!
Ready for snack patrol.
LBM was eager to be free and run on the road. He waited so nicely while I snapped a quick picture of me and the dogs but was a little too eager to wait while I took off my shoes.
Ready to run!
Come on Mom!
We enjoyed our barefoot cool down but finally had to go inside and call it a day.
But this is what happens when LBM doesn't feel like he is ready to stop running yet...
