Wednesday- planned, Tempo Run, 7 miles
Ikea is a store that you can spend 3 days in. The boys and I will walk around in there forever finding new organizers, pillows, whatever. Yesterday, I went there with some girlfriends because on Tuesdays kids eat free. (Warning: don’t go on Tue in the summer, it’s so crazy it’ll make you want to throw a tantrum).
J thought he was on a date;)
I had the Greek salad minus those onions and tomatoes, blah, I do not like raw onions or giant tomatoes. Oh and most of J’s mac n’ cheese, yum.
I took a pic of us leaving Ikea, it was super windy and J’s face is just so funny.
After I posted about my run on Saturday my mom called. She wanted to make sure I brought my mace with me because the picture of the trail I was on looked very desolate. I love my mom, I love that she is concerned about me even thousands of miles away=) So, I decided to address what safety measures I take when I run outside.
1. I always tell Josh exactly where I’m running and how long I should be gone.
2. I always have my phone with me. I carry it in this(straps to my arm). I bought it at TJ Max for I think $10.
3. I always bring mace with me( gift from my parents=)) Small, easy to hold, and has about 10 sprays. They got it from Dicks Sporting Good store for about $40.
4. I always make sure it’s light out, I will not run in the dark.
The pictures that I post look like they are desolate because I wait for the runners/walkers to leave view so I can get a ‘pretty’ shot. I apologize mom for scaring you. In fact, there were several running groups out and they even shared their water with me=)
What safety measures do you take?
Do you carry mace?
