My calves hate me.

My @humanrightscampaign #athletesforequality stuff came! My race my change, but I am still trying to raise $1,000 for HRC. HTTP://action.hrc.org/goto/kateTNF50k

Or there’s the Napa Valley Marathon….

Just got an email saying registration is open for the LA Marathon.

Do I register for it? And skip TNF? That would allow me to do the Blue Ridge marathon I’m hoping will get back to me about a social media entry.

XC 20 min tempo + 4x200m

Highlighted is the main workout. 2 mile warm up and cool down. Endurance feels like its back, speed not really, but I felt fast here. Even my warm up/cool down paces are feeling faster. 

No XC run today, but I do have coaching, so I’m going to run hills with my ladies.

Going for a run! Sucks that it’s not still cool out. Hurry fall. 
My eye is looking much better today, but still looks a little like I got punched.

Looking like a runner. Headed to class! 

I ordered a bunch of fall stuff from the North Face! Cheap…

So I went through my old clothes and have two paper grocery bags full of old clothes to donate!

Could it be pink eye?

I don’t think so. My eyeball isn’t red, and I definitely don’t want to rub my eyes.

Def not my best 5k. Actually probably one of my worst…but still good enough for 15th overall (not sure how many people did it) 5th female and 1st in my age group. Lots of frills for a tiny race.

2 ish mile cool down post race with the team.

Today I ran 5.4 easy miles in my new Glycerins…yes…new pair of shoes. I like them a lot. As you probably can tell, I don’t stick with the same shoe for multiple generations. I love having variety! The Glycerins have a nice, smooth, floaty feel. I could have run for more, but I didn’t have water or gel on me.

I really can’t wait to start running longer. I think since the indoor marathon, my longest run has only been 8 miles. Its been good taking it easy, my body feels good, but my lungs suck. 

Also, my eyes suck. IDK if its allergies, or psoriasis maybe, but it started out as a dry patch of skin, my eyelid would be a little inflamed/swollen, and then it started getting worse this last week. I’d wake up and it’d be really flakey and swollen, and really dry and almost felt like a burn. 

I’ve been putting Bio Oil on it, that seems to be ok. Coconut oil feels GREAT on it. I’ve been putting eye drops in and that helps the dryness. I got some Psoriasis Tar Gel stuff to put on it on Saturday, I think that helped, but I think it leads to the burning sensation and ends up really drying it out. It looks live I’ve been crying for 10 years. On my run, actually my eyes do water and I can feel tears running down, but I don’t sneeze or feel like its allergies. 

If I had health insurance, I would have gone to the doctor by now for it. 

Any ideas of what it could be?
