Let's do the Time Warp...Part Dos

Let's do the time warp again. It's just a jump to the left. And then a step to the right. With your hands on your hips. You bring your knees in tight. But it's the pelvic thrust. They really drive you insane. Let's do the time warp again. Let's do the time warp again.

What? Sorry got distracted!

I can't believe that I have went this long again without posting anything. No excuses, BUUUUUTTT in my defense, we have been having sleep issues at my house. My beautiful, angelic daughter has decided to try to kill me slowly by way of sleep deprivation. It has resulted in my days, weeks, and apparently months beginning to blend together and apparently the excessive Rocky Horror Picture Show show tunes singing. Just sayin'! I have managed to run a race since I last blogged. On the 25th of June, my partner in running crime, K and I ran the Summer Super 8K at Stars and Stripes. I haven't had the greatest luck with races at Lake Hefner and this race was no exception. I finished, but it was one of the toughest races to date. And after the Memorial, that's saying something. I woke up not feeling right and I know that I said that the next time that happened I would skip the race, but uh....no. So I had foot issues. My foot went numb like it did at the St. paddy's day race. I heaved a complete of times and let me just say: Sushi the night before is no bueno. But I finished and I have the obnoxiously neon green shirt to prove it. Next up is the Blaze for Freedom Race also at Stars and Stripes, but it's only a 5K. When I planned my races out at the beginning of the season, I had no idea that it was going to get this hot this quickly. Now I'm paying for being organized. I had planned on using this 5k to push my pace, but now I'm just hoping to not puke and/or pass out from heat exhaustion. : )  Until then, peace, love, and hydration!
