Road Kill & a Flash Flood!

I just ran possibly the hottest run ever. I'm sure I feel that way every time but today was especially crazy! It's 95 degrees outside and the sun was beating down! Thankfully there was a slight breeze...that was my saving grace...besides the fact I stopped every once in a while to answer a text from my friend Heather! lol The bad thing about today's run is that there was ROAD KILL everywhere! Worse than the time my Sister In Law Kayla and I ran and saw dead frogs smushed in the road! I passed a sleketon possum. Something had picked it's bones apart! It was disgusting! I also saw a few sad! I think someone also threw their gross fish heads in the big ditch at the end of my road. Sooo, if you can imagine, everything had a very unpleasant odor, of course. It was lovely. I did it though! 3.5 miles! I ran with my hydration belt which was a big pain at first cause the bottles were full and the thing wanted to bounce around! After I drank a little out of each bottle, it got better thankfully! The cold did feel good on my back, though!!

So far this week:
Sunday: 3 mile run in a.m. (this took the place of Monday's run), Jillian Michaels workout in p.m.
Monday: Jillian Michaels workout in a.m.
Tuesday: Jillian Michaels workout in a.m. (was supposed to run but got rained out)
Wednesday: 3.5 mile run in p.m.

I feel much better this week. I'm picking up speed a little and I'm able to run futher since my whole foot incident! Yay!

Yesterday, I had all intentions of running but it rained and rained and rained allllll day long. The old part of my town has a bad drainage system and I was trying to go to McAlisters for dinner! Well, I got stuck in a FLASH FLOOD! Oh my gosh I was SO scared! I got the text update on my phone from our local news just as I was driving into it! It was soooo scary!!!

Every time a car would pass and would make waves, I could feel my car moving up and down with the waves. I really thought my car was going to flood out! I was able to get out of it after about 5 minutes but that was seriously the scariest 5 minutes of my life! So, moral of the story, I'm not driving down that road EVER again if it is raining that bad!

I've never prayed so hard in my life! lol


  1. haha I didn't know you were running when I was texting you. oops!
    glad you didn't die in the flood!

  2. yikes. That is pretty scary. I would not have liked that at all!!!!! Gotta love all the road kill!!! At least it was more of a variety this time instead of just dead frogs. haha

  3. Omg how terrifying about the flood!
    Great job at the race! I'm so glad to hear you're getting speed and some endurance back. Eww about roadkill. This weekend I did a race and I passed a dead possum twice, so gross.
