Happy 4th of July blogger friends! Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday. I am headed to my parents house in a bit for a little cookout/family time. I am looking forward to hanging out, it's been a few weeks.
Yesterday was another successful Team-in-Training day at Lake Hefner. The weather was cloudy with light rain which was a welcome relief from the hot, nasty weather we have had the past few weeks. Our Team put in a nice 7 - 9 miles depending on their race date and everyone did really well. After coaching for a bit, I parked my car out at Hefner and got in a quick 5 miles for my own training. It's a stepback week for me, so that will be the end of my running this week. I was contemplating going for a bike ride today, but I could use an extra rest day so I am going to take it. No reason to push right now.
For those of you who live in Oklahoma, go by and pick up a copy of the July/August issue of Oklahoma Sports and Fitness magazine! I was asked to write an article by the new editor/owner and it is in the current issue. For those of you outside of Oklahoma, here is a link to a PDF version of the magazine:
Oklahoma Sports and Fitness Magazine - July/August 2010
I am on page 14, but definitely check out the whole magazine if you haven't read it. It's a great source for local race information.
As a thank you for writing the article, the magazine also sent me a cool Brooks tech tee! I will always take free Brooks gear! Until next time, Run Happy!
