For those of you who don't know me very well, I have something to admit. I absolutely, cannot stand drinking plain water. I HATE IT! You can try to add citrus and ice, but I still know its just plain water. I refuse to drink it. Rarely do I even drink water after running. I would much prefer to put sparkling water in my bottle, but it would probably explode all over me while running....
Because of this, I am typically dehydrated. Don't get me wrong, I love sparkling water (really any brand, but specifically Cascadia or Talking Rain, even Perrier if I feel fancy) and Diet Coke and I live off of coffee, specifically lattes and drip coffee. You will usually find one of the below images on my desk or in my hand:
Needless to say, when I saw the amount of miles that I was running (and that I want to run more in the upcoming months) I need to change what I drink. I decided to dust the cobwebs off my water bottle and attempt to drink at least 2 bottles full of water per day. I know this doesn't seem like a lot, but that is a HUGE step for me. The past two days you could find this in addition to my coffee on my desk:
Freebie water bottle from the Alki Beach 5k
At least its a start......does anyone actually like water?
Besides that, it is finally the END OF THE FISCAL YEAR! Woo hoo! I have been super busy the past 2 days, which means no running :( 2 days off doesn't seem like a lot, but I am itching to get a run in NOW. I can see the sun's reflection on the walls near my cube, and its just teasing me. Can I go home now?? I can't wait to put in a few miles tonight - I need to keep my mileage up!
