So here's another giveaway for you! Janae over at hungryrunnergirl is giving away a prize pack! It's actually pretty sweet. What I didn't tell you before is that when I post about it on my blog, I get extra points for the giveaway. And I'm basically desperate for free stuff, so you're going to have to put up with it.
I went for an easy run this morning, four miles. I decided to try a new route. I stopped to talk to a neighbor on Tuesday and she recommended this route because it was busy, with lots of people. Basically, she meant it was safe. So I thought "why not". We only have one traffic light in town, and it passes right through it, which made me a little nervous with Lucy, but we made it.
Unfortunately because there's traffic on this road, it has the inevitable dust. It has been super hot and dry here this last week, and so the cars just kick up dust. Clouds and clouds of dust. My mouth doesn't like that, and neither do my contacts. Too bad.
In other running news: Lucy likes to scrounge, pick up stuff, and carry it in her mouth until she has a free second to gulp it down. I think it's rather disgusting, but she seems to enjoy herself. This morning she found something, and when I tried to call her over (so I could take it out) she looked at me like I spanked her. I finally got a hold of her, pried her mouth open, and took out what looked to be a hamburger bun. I tossed it off to the side, and she went and grabbed it again, anyway. Oh well. She kept that thing in her mouth for another mile and a half, and finally gulped it down when she got a chance.
I told her that if she gets sick, I will not feel bad. I don't think she cared.
