Happy Saturday! Thanks for all the guest post offers! If you want to get them to me by Friday – that would be great. I might actually save some and run them after we get back 🙂
Got some good sleep last night – yay! Gym doesn’t open til 8, so I could lounge around in bed for a bit, which was nice. Then I got up and ate a balance bar before heading out to run! I couldn’t resist wearing my new Sauconys! They are comfie. I hit the treadmill for 6 miles again today. Had an interesting comment from a woman who was walk/jogging next to me for a while. I was in the locker room and she came in and said “I don’t know how you can run for so long without your knees bothering you.”
I don’t know why my knees are fine running. I have chondromalacia, and my knees sound like rice krispies – but they never hurt. Maybe because I don’t run all that fast. Maybe it’s the biking or the strength training. I talked with my sister about it, and she had read that if you start running later in life, you have less knee problems than those that run starting from a young age. Interesting.
Came home to protein waffles!
I had to consciously slow down eating these, because I wanted to wolf them down.
My sister,Colleen, has been growing her hair for a long time. She decided to get it cut and donate the hair. She asked her girls if she should donate to women or children, and they voted for the children who had cancer. That means Locks of Love. They basically provide wigs to children who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy treatments. When donating hair, it must be 10 inches or longer. Colleen called around to a few salons to make sure they knew how to properly cut the hair for the program and made an appointment for today and asked me to come take pictures! Here she is with the long hair:
Now her hair is measured with the rubber bands.
This stylist made it so he could cut the required length, but leave some length to work a cut with – rather than just putting the hair in a ponytail and hacking it off.
Colleen and her finished ‘do! Sophisticated and shexsy!
Of course, sisters have to have coffee! We headed out to Fortunate Cup and had a couple of lattes. This is a picture of her latte, as it was prettier than mine.
Plus a scone. Yum.
We are the twinsies now!
I think she secretly wants to be me anyway…..
