Hey there guys! Happy Friday to you!!
Last night was the Glow Run that SL Running Co put on. I love night time running events! It started at the store, went to Liberty Park, and finished back at the store for a total of 5 miles. I wish I could have arrived early to participate in the raffle and contests, but alas, I was on kiddie patrol and just barely made it before the running started.
I said I was going to try KTTape on my knee for the race and that’s exactly what I did. I watched a video for full knee support and this pic is of my artful taping :). The tape worked really well. My knee felt supported but not restricted. I didn’t feel like I had tape on. The adhesive stayed put through the whole race. Plus, I felt great and had no twinges!
By the way I’m not nakie in this pic! My biker shorts were just riding up at the moment 🙂
Here I am ready to run. I went with pink bangs instead of the full wig (couldn’t get it to stay on). It wasn’t super cold so I only needed one long-sleeved layer over my tech-T. I think most normal people only need a long sleeved shirt, but I’m a human popsicle and need fleece whenever it goes below 55.
A little closer and you can kind of see my face paint 🙂 Just Run
When we started running I had planned on sticking to a 9:30 min/mile pace, but I felt fine at 8:50 so that’s what I stuck with. It was such a lovely night. I wish this weather would stick around. Of course I know that’s not going to happen, but a girl can dream.
I finished in 44:10, drank a bunch of water, and then headed home.
Glow Run complete!
Have a great weekend everyone! See you on Monday!
