The dog days are over.

Hi! I'm Amanda, on a journey to becoming fit & finally be happy with myself. I'm currently training for a 10k in November and plan to tackle my first MARATHON in the next year! I would love to have a network of supportive fitblrs so we can encourage and motivate each other. Feel free to say hi anytime! :)

As it turns out, it stopped raining when I got out to the trail, but no one else was out there, which is a pretty cool sight.

And guys!!! I did a sub-12 min mile!! That so rarely happens, I’m ecstatic when it does lol.

Hope everyone has a grrreat Sunday!

Power song of the day: Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”

Woke up at 5:50am to the sound of pouring rain.

Option A: run now, while it’s raining and 64 degrees out.
Option B: run after work, when it will most likely also be raining and 80 degrees out. Gotta love mountain weather.

I need to get over my hesitancy to run in the rain. Maybe I just don’t have the proper gear. I was thinking of investing in a Lifeproof case for my phone so I can still carry it on my runs without worrying about the moisture destroying it.

Rain is good for the soul, right?

Gotta love down-angled selfies for the skinny effect :P
