I usually have all my greatest ideas while running, but of course when I finish the run I cannot seem to remember the perfectly constructed sentences, poems, ideas, etc. This morning while running with Winkly, a thought just struck me. Last night i was reading Laura's blog and she had posted pictures of her latest marathon. While on mile 4 of this run, I thought why not carry a disposable camera on the half marathon. I know, I know - lots of people carry their cameras on runs but my problem is that I just don't have enough cameras. B-Rabbit will have mine, and my mom (who just signed up to volunteer at one of the mile markers and be a road marshall for the race!!!) will have hers but I dont have any other cameras. PLUS I am slightly scared that with all the sweat I will ruin my camera. So i am going this afternoon to buy a disposable camera that I can carry during the race and then take pictures of it the whole way!!! Of course I told Winkly about my idea as soon as i thought of it (another benefit of running with your best friend!!)
We decided today during the run that we will try to run a race together once a month! We also discussed what we should eat before the run, during and after. I feel like I am not getting enough intake of carbs during the run but im not sure what to eat. I usually never eat anything during running. During basketball I would always eat pasta 3 hours before the game started and then have selected snacks for half-time if i started to get dizzy or have trouble concentrating (more on this in the future). Any ideas what to eat the morning of the race, and then during the race???
