Out the door by 8 am with Brita to hit the pavement. We went out around town, hit some hills and completed 70 minutes of running all before 9:30 am :) The weather this week is going to be absolutely fantastic, so we're going to get out again Thursday and probably Saturday morning for some more miles. Tomorrow I will take very light or off, the run was really hard for me today even though it shouldn't have been, so I am taking that as my body's way of telling me it needs a break since I didn't take a day off last week.

Newton Running Shoes
I was really excited when I was going through this months edition of Runners World and I found this article...
Newton Running Shoes! The article explains the science behind the design of Newton shoes and it gives a little history on the company. Why was I excited about this? Because I just bought a pair a few months ago! I haven't used them a ton yet, but enough to know that I love them! I am saving them so I can use them for when I start training for my first marathon... I mean why not run my first marathon in style ;)
If you are an observant person, you may have noticed my new header on my blog!
I will also be trying to feature a health or fitness related tip each day I post, so here's to tip #1....
Today's Tip: Swap the mayo in your tuna for a healthier substitute like hummus or BBQ sauce.
