Yesterday morning, I went out for a lake loop. Lake loops are the place I feel most comfortable. If I could only run one course forever and ever, it would be there. I'm the Strava Local Legend there and that's kind of a big deal from what I hear (I'll be signing autographs at the local Koffee Kup diner). I had a bad race on Saturday. We were fortunate enough to have a small, in-person race to run. That race was the Bedford Peaks of Otter Christmas Classic. It is my favorite local race, outside of the Virginia 10 miler. It's festive and jolly. There are cinnamon rolls. It's great. The best part would be the amazing coffee mugs for award winners. I always get one. Not this year. I was 4th AG. That stung.
Hey there! It's December, otherwise known as the time of year where I regret cursing the summer heat as I brave the cold temperatures of winter. Running (or just living) in the cold present a whole new set of challenges. It's a challenge just to leave my warm, soft, magical bed! I was given the opportunity to try out the BUFF® DryFlx+ collection and I jumped right on that! BUFF® and I go WAY back now. I've been running with them for years in both the hot and the cold. If they have a new product, I'm always interested.
