I have spotted the elusive hillous asskickis. It’s a non-native species to Florida, so I rarely encounter it on my
Watch out! Hills can be pretty tough critters! 🙂
I woke up at 6:45 and practically LEAPED out of bed in excitement. I LOVE to work out on my vacations — there’s no pressure to get back at a certain time.
I had a slice of toast with almond butter before I left:
And then I left for my long run of the week. I knew I needed to squeeze in at least 6 miles to hit my 16 miles/week goal for marathon training.
My mom lives in a rural area, even though her house is located within a subdivision:
I ran up and down every cul-de-sac of the subdivision and then I ventured into the Tennessee countryside. I was a little hesitant to do this because the last time I was in Tennessee, a huge dog actually tried to attack me on a country road. It was pretty scary (I had to use a giant stick to fend him off)! But I didn’t see any vicious creatures on my run today, just the super tough hillous asskickis.
Ahh, hills! So many hills in my mom’s neighborhood. My attitude towards hills is that I’d rather just tackle them at my normal pace than slow down to climb then. It was a pretty heart-thumping workout!

I came home, iced my knees, and sat in a rocking chair on my front patio to enjoy this delicious breakfast:
Oikos yogurt, cereal, blueberries, and pecans.
I’m off to shower and then we’re going SHOPPING again. Keep your fingers crossed for me — I need an outfit for the Healthy Living Summit! And we have plans to go on a hike in the Smoky Mountains later, too.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
