8 Mile Run

Since I don't want you to think that all I've been doing is sitting around, eating peanut butter cookies, ; ) I had better post that I ran 8 easy miles today, drinking Nuun at mile 4 and feeling better than usual in the heat. Carrying partially frozen water gave me something to look forward to every two miles. Stay cool! 


  1. Well, there is nothing wrong with sitting around eating peanut butter cookies. Especially when you are knocking down 8 mile runs in Houston heat/humidity. Stay cool and hydrated.

  2. he's right! as much as you run, i think you could do that if you really wanted to! :) maybe you'll get a little relief with some winds the next few days. ok, i'm going to look up Nuun. have you tried coconut juice? i was reading about it today in RW but i don't think it's as effective for long runs.

  3. I haven't had that yet. Maybe I should give it a try.

  4. How do you like Nuun? I may have to try it.

  5. As far as taste, Nuun tastes okay - not delicious to me because it's not sweet, but not terrible either.

    1. Update: I like Nuun more now than I used to. Now, I like the fact that it isn't too sweet.
