A few months ago I told you about my love of running shorts. Really, it's an obsession. Well, I've discovered an new obsession: running headbands.
I used to run with a narrow little headband, but that didn't keep my long bangs from flopping around and bothering me. Very annoying. My next solution was a hat. I love my dri-fit hat...it keeps my hair out of my way and wicks the sweat off my forehead. So much better!

I wasn't planning on posting today...but I had an epic run. Not a good run, not a great run...an EPIC run.
For starters, I woke up to a beautiful 63 degree morning. That's a whole 10 degrees cooler than my last run. It's amazing the difference that makes. Second, Monday's run had been record breaking in many ways. I was sure today's would be even better.

Today I did something I've never done before...I ran my first virtual race. (Click here to learn more about virtual races)I know I told you before I signed up for a virtual marathon...well that one's coming up in October. This was another virtual race I found through one of my Facebook running groups...and the race that opened my eyes to the grand, exciting world of virtual running.

Today I had a doctor's appointment. It started out like usual...weight, height, blood pressure, sit in the cold little room in my underwear, etc. Soon the doctor came in and it was time to get the appointment under way. Next the doctor wanted to listen to my heart and lungs.
After listening to my heart for a moment he had a strange look on this face. That's when he asked is I ever exercise. I told him I run 2-3 times and bike 1-2 a week (that's probably a little stretch...but we can keep that secret between us). The concerned look left his face, and he responded, "You have a slow hearts beat like an athlete."

Another month has come and gone. August is always one of my favorites because the kids head back to school (though I didn't like part when I was a kid) and it's my Birthday. The start of school means the start of scouts, dance class and sports. It's been a marathon month...in more ways than one. Here's what I did in August:
