Dear Runner Lovers,
The other night I went running around 7pm for ten miles. I felt great in the moment but a few hours later I was really sick.
I woke up in the middle of the night feeling shaky, sweating, heart racing, weak and looking grey with blue lips. All I needed was a sugar hit, so I grabbed a Snickers from my purse and some Orange Juice. That's literally what made my color come back. Then, I was fine and went to my 8am class like nothing even happened!
Sometimes, being a long distance runner, you feel like you ate enough for your mileage and actually did not. Now I know if I run later at night, I need to eat dessert! Here on out, I will sleep with candy under my pillow.
I really eat every two hours during the day too, running just burns so many calories its hard to keep up.
I hope everyone always has candy and is ready for a great weekend!
Eat More candy,
That Pretty Runner
I truly appreciate your generosity and support towards reaching my fundraising goal for St. Jude, running the Mount Desert Marathon.
