The Kansas City Royals are in FIRST PLACE!!!
Some of you gals show pics of your dresses and clothes and new hair cuts, but I have no fashion sense and I cut my own hair (Don't laugh, I'm not joking) So here is something I think is cool. I mentioned last post that we have over 300 autographed baseballs, here are 100 of them. I used to be really into sports memorabilia, and still really enjoy it, but it takes a lot of time and is pretty expensive, so I've slowed down a little over the years. But I've got a pretty cool collection. (I'm actually more proud of the frames I made for these jerseys and the balls than the stuff in them - ha.)

I warmed up with two lite miles and then stopped completely for about 6 minutes, milling & stretching, and then stood still in one spot for about a minute, simulating the corral at the start of a race. After that, I tried to gradually ramp up with actual race splits for my half-marathon coming up in three weeks.
It took me a little while to feel like I was running smoothly, mostly because I did hills on Tuesday and my legs were still a little fried. And I reaffirmed that I need a couple of more miles to get loose before and during a race. I don't think I could have gone another 6 miles at that pace this morning. But on the bright side, I felt good overall about the times since I ran them on the road and not around a track. The course I ran this morning wasn't tough at all, but it had some rolling elevation that made me focus on pace and heart rate.
I felt decent about the run, but I still have a long way to go before my half-marathon in a few weeks. I don't feel at all like I'm where I need to be, but I don't know that I've had a realistic snap-shot of it recently either. Hope your week is going well!
... be great today!
