I really do think I am becoming a runner.
On Thursday evening, I head to West Palm Beach for 3 nights with a good friend. This is a trip that I won from winning the Gazette Healthy Challenge last year. I am excited. My husband refused to go with me, so I finally asked my friend Melissa and now we are going! Yay!!!! It has been cloudy and rainy here all week... so I hope Florida brings some much needed sun - it is the Sunshine State after all, right?
While in WPB, I am participating in the Rock Your Socks Virtual 10k or 1/2 marathon. I haven't decided whether I am going to do a 1/2 marathon or just a 10k. I am nervous about running in a new area and about safety. I will just decide that day. Anyone live near West Palm Beach? I did a practice run with my socks and my calves have ached ever since that run. But, I have also put lots of miles and haven't spent too much time stretching, so I cannot blame the socks. And I am also wondering about a sock tan with knee high socks.
I have run 12 miles and not taken them... so tell me what you do!
When do you take a GU or sports bean or energy chews? How long are those runs and how often do you take them?
