How was your week?  The pollen has been brutal lately and that can make outdoor running tough if you have allergies.  It should be more mild temperatures this week which will be great!


  1. Yeah for another PR! And my allergies have been TERRIBLE this week, it totally came on full force and my poor nose hasn't stopped running : (

    1. Same here. I haven't gone for any outdoor runs in two weeks because I'm afraid of aggravating my allergies worse ... also because the heat and humidity down here in south Florida has been skyrocketing. On Saturday morning it was 83 degrees and 93% humidity at 7am : (

  2. Sounds like a great week! Congrats again to Christine on her PR! Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend! :0)

  3. We have the Santa Ana winds this time of year here in Southern California. They bring in all kinds of things from the desert and make allergies just miserable for a lot of people. Congrats on fininshing another race, Christine, and Pam relax that injury!

    1. Thanks Jennifer! Pam is trying hard to not run....it is not easy to rest when your mind is telling you to get out for a run!

  4. Sounds like you guys had an awesome week! Great job, Christine!!

  5. Awesome PR Christine! Keep it up ladies! Bling bling - oh and I just put the linkup up ;)
