26 days: glasses in the rain

14 September 2009

There are sexier things than running with glasses on.
There are sexier things than running with glasses on in the rain.

And to all the midtown Springfield motorists out this evening, I apologize for the wet-tshirt contest entry that was my last half-hour of running. At least the shirt was green, y’all.

It wasn’t that bad. It was just misty, but misty enough to totally drown my spectacles.

What is sexy: when running for an hour really doesn’t feel like a big deal. Went by really fast tonight. Took a different route, for one thing. Can’t believe I haven’t taken advantage of Phelps Grove’s proximity until today.

Tried out jellybelly Sport Beans tonight.

Not so bad! jellybeans with extra punch of electrolytes and vitamins.
flavor: delish, of course…they’re jellybelly. kinda sour, but not overpowering. a hint of chewable vitamin.
texture: more easter-bean than typical jb style, but totally easy to consume while running.
power: well, I had half a package before my run, and didn’t feel weak at all for an hour. I think they could easily sustain for part of a longer run. but i’m skeptical…for some reason it seems like energy foods made by a candy company can’t be as legit as yucky tasting gels…
bonus: they have a resealable zip-lock closure. neat!

Will run 26 miles in 26 days.

    Unless they come in black licorice flavor flav – I am not interested.

    I am so excited to start following your blog — not necessarily following you while you run. I will just keep up with the words.
