Go Time

Sudafed might dry me out and exacerbate my dehydration, but at least I can breathe again!
Miles of paths, literally in my backyard...why have I not done this before?!
My legs definitely enjoyed all the time off, and a run through the golf course was a great change of pace. I loved the variety of terrain - paved paths, crushed shell, soft asphalt, grass - and the sprinklers. 

I was really excited to try my new Pro Compression socks, too. I usually run in Thorlos but they've been so hot lately. I was nervous to try these because, while I love the sleeves, I was worried the socks wouldn't be cushioned enough.

I'm literally going to order at least six more pairs like...this week. They're JUST cushiony enough where it counts, but my feet didn't hurt (and they've been really achy lately) and they felt snug and secure without feel hot at all.
And an added bonus? Colors!

It feels good to be back, and my eye is back on the prize. I'm feeling reignited. I'm ready to go!

  2. Beautiful running route!!! Now I want to order those funky PC socks!! The low trainers I have from Pro C. are solid colours but you can never have too many pairs right? ;)

  3. Glad you're feeling better! These summer colds are the worst!

    The golf course sounds like the perfect running route, especially because of the sprinklers! That sounds amazing!

  6. I love my low trainers....but I need those colors!!!! We have a golf course going in right around the corner and I'm hoping we'll be able to run on their paths as I think it would be a great change of pace! So glad you're back on course!

  7. I always run in Thorlos too! I get blisters in every other sock I tried. I'll have to try the Pro Compression next because those colors are awesome!

    1. I love Thorlos usually, and I'll use them more in winter I think, but this summer they've just been too much!
