Bumpin’ dubstep and crushing miles

23 Feb

Mission accomplished.

This morning, I woke up with a fresh attitude and actually felt a little excited to get out for my run. I ate a little whole wheat toast with peanut butter, chugged some nuun-ified water, put all my gear on, stretched, set Pandora to the Skrillex station, sucked down a mint chocolate GU, and hit the road.

First thought 45 seconds into my run: “I’m wearing the wrong runderpants for this.” A bit of a wedgie was not going to stop me though!

I let my body tell me where I was most comfortable pace wise and just went with it. I really enjoyed this run and making it through the 6 miles really blew away the blahs from yesterday.

I really liked the flavor and it was nice and smooth. Only 100 calories in a bottle (10.5 oz) and 18 grams of protein! I’m on the lookout for the bars and 2Go drink mixes, but so far haven’t found those locally. So far, I’m a fan.
