One more run to go and I’ll be done with my 5th RunBet! Moving on to the “5 Mile Challenge” next 😬 Definitely going to get myself out of my comfort zone!

Have to try and fit all my runs in by Thursday as I have company flying in. Had a MAJOR headache tonight but forced myself to run and guess what? Headache was gone about 10 minutes into my run!

Got a double stroller for my birthday. Now running is 3 times as hard.

Does anyone have advice for handling shin splints? I’ve upped my calcium to help but I wonder if there’s anything else I could be doing.
