  1. Funny you should post this, because I just went on an afternoon 12 miler with my brother to celebrate 2012. It followed a big meal of corned beef and cabbage and I’ve never felt so ill in my life! I usually skip eating before a race, unless it is a marathon.

  2. Hey! Thanks so much for stopping by! I haven’t been running very long and as a matter of fact ended up having to take the month of December off due to a pulled muscle in my abdomen, which really sucked by the way. 🙂 I was really surprised how the running would really irritate it. So this month I am starting back! I am going to go to the track tomorrow after work to see what I still have in my legs. I normally don’t eat before a run, mainly because I wasn’t doing long distances. Either way, I don’t like to eat before I do any kind of workout. Makes my tummy angry. 🙂 I would also run in the morning…..get it over with!
    I look forward to reading your blog for some great running advice!

    • and than YOU for stopping by! 🙂 so happy to see that ur venture to the track was a success! don’t worry, it’ll come back quickly and soon you’ll be feeling just as great as you did before you had to take the time off! 🙂

  3. definitely love running in the morning…i love getting my day started with a run. but i hate running hungry. i always eat oatmeal. i have been lucky enough so far to be able to stomach food before, during and after runs but pretty sure that does not mean i would be able to take in chili cheese dogs. haha! hope you had a wonderful holiday season friend!

    • awww, i hope u had an awesome holiday tour de force too!!! ya, u run at the CRAZY early hours…i’m glad the oatmeal works for u, that one’s usually a safe bet. u take care missy and i’m missing stalking ur blog updates! 😉
