Tampa made headline news the other day due to the amount of rain and flooding we've had. Gabe and I survived unscathed but today is the first time I have seen the sun in over 2 weeks. I understand how vampires feel. The photo on the left is Bayshore Blvd, where go to I run anything over 3 miles. The top right photo is Kennedy Blvd, one of our main streets in Tampa and the photo on the bottom right is Dale Mabry, our other main street (and across from Fresh Market, where we do most of our grocery shopping). It's been an interesting few time but the water is draining, most of the roads are reopened and I finally got to run outside this morning!

My ASICS App. If you are looking to train for a new distance, I strongly suggest downloading and using this free app. It is a great training tool. My August plan will be modified a bit when I get my training plan from Coach Andrew Kastor.
Rock n Roll DC Half Marathon in March! This is when I am jealous of those who live up north. If I am putting the miles in for a 13.1, I want a medal. Looks like I am going to find me a cool virtual race to run! I mentioned the heat at the beginning of this post. It has been miserable in FL this summer and the heat and humidity makes it nearly impossible to breath. When I tried using this as an excuse to Coach Kastor, he told me that training in the humidity will prepare me just as if I were training in the mountains. I try to think about that when I feel like keeling over but then I get jealous of those in the mountains and snow.
