First things first--my bike ride went well last night. Hubster joined me and we biked for about 9 miles in 50 minutes. It was a good ride and I definitely felt the burn in my quads on the hills. It was a great day for a bike ride and I'm glad I went. I needed to burn of a few extra calories for the day, and biking made that happen. I am also please to report that my weigh-in yesterday wasn't a fluke and that I am holding strong at 149.6 this morning as well. Can I get a booyah?
Also...I've added another race to my list for the year. I will be running an additional Ragnar Relay. For those keeping track, I've already ran the Florida Keys race and will be running Wasatch Back (in Utah) and Las Vegas this year. Well, we can now add the Northwest Passage Ragnar to this list. Hubster emailed me today and asked if I was interested. Hello--it runs through beautiful Washington (never been there!) and the course looks amazing! Of course I'm interested! It also starts just 45 minutes away from Vancouver and I haven't been to Canada yet either so we will make a stop up there. It's been on my bucket list for years! Anyway, we're officially signed up and are working on our team. The race is mid-July so hopefully I don't melt to death. It is going to be an awesome event!
Does anyone that lives in Washington have any suggestions or recommendations for running in Washington during July? What should I expect?
