Last night was a welcome back to school skate night for the science magnet program that #thegoose will be attending for the next 3 years.
I considered NOT skating in order to prevent against possible injury before this weekend's 50k, but then I just had to...I love to roller skate.
Goose said that I wasn't embarrassing because I was good and fast. High praise from an 11 year old that didn't even want me to be in the building. Of course that might have had something to do with me threatening to wear my Ultima Morpha costume resplendent with lime green tights and purple lamé #shortshorts. Laying in bed this morning, I was questioning the wisdom of that rash decision as I took inventory of my many aches and pains!
I considered not running at all this morning, but needed to take my new #drymaxsocks out for a test run. The first pair I bought were too big but these felt just right...and look how color coordinated my feet were (no comment on the rest of my get up). I took it pretty easy and used it as another opportunity to practice my fueling and hydration strategy--have to get my stomach accustomed to the increased sugar.
A proper breakfast was definitely in order and this #bastedegg atop a crispy steel cut oat cake with some cilantro pesto, #kumato tomatoes, and a crisped up slice of spicy salami definitely fit the bill.
Oh, and one more thing, skating with all those middle schoolers proved why we don't let them drive at that age: 1) They don't check their blind spot. 2) They don't signal when stopping or changing direction. 3) They randomly cut across lanes of traffic. 4) They put on lip gloss while skating.
