It’s another beautiful morning in the Tampa Bay area. One of those mornings where you wish you could spend the whole day outside – cool temps, blue sky, and bright green grass all around – and make you grateful you live in Florida.
I had an “easy 3 miles” on my sub-48 10k plan this morning, so I put a leash on Maddie and took her with me. She can be a speedy little thing when she wants to, but generally she’s great at holding me back and keeping a steady 9:30ish pace. We did our usual out and back and returned with equal smiles on both our faces.
Something I’m learning about short hair – it’s generally out of control in the morning. Bed head can be somewhat manageable with longer hair (hello brush and ponytail holder!), but all the brushing in the world doesn’t seem to make the hair that’s sticking up in the back come back down with short hair. So i’m getting creative with how I wear my hair for runs.
Enter: pigtail nubbins
I can’t exactly pull all my hair in a ponytail, but I can divide it into two pigtails (sort of). Eh. With a headband it gets the job done of keeping the hair out of my face and I don’t have hair sticking up in every which direction. 🙂
I had a mountain of blueberries and strawberries for breakfast this morning.
With some blood orange Chobani, walnuts, almonds, and Kashi Go Lean Crisp.
It was one of those mornings where I went to just put a handful of blueberries on top and ended up dumping the rest of the container. Whoops. Oh, well. It was berry-riffic.
What’s your favorite way to wear your hair when you exercise? Do you just throw it in a ponytail? Add a headband? Pigtails?
