It was a little warm out, but because of the antibiotic I'm taking for the stupid tick bite I had to wear long sleeves and TONS of sunscreen. The medicine makes my skin super sensitive to the sun. I went for a run one morning last week at about 6 am and when I got home my legs looked like I had a serious sunburn or heat rash! Luckily it went away in about an hour. I was so worried it would happen again this weekend, but luckily I finished the race just as pale as I began it!
(Apparently I make odd faces when I run...)
There is another Run Like a Girl 8k in October that I'm thinking of running. I am in love with races...I want to find more! A few weeks ago I was looking for races online (trying to find something in Florida around Thanksgiving) and I came upon the Women's Half Marathon in St. Pete.
I'm thinking about running it! (Which I realize might be a little crazy since I just ran my first 5 mile race...) I would definitely have to train for this one (which I have no idea how to do) and I don't really care if I ended up walking a little. It would be amazing to run a race without hills too! Opinions?! Is this a crazy idea? How do you train for a half marathon?
