You know your life is quiet and you aren’t running when you can’t even come up with 3 things on a Thursday. Perhaps I could talk about not running or not sleeping. But how exciting is that?
1. My kids have never had sunburns before this year. I’ve always used the zinc oxide based lotions and never had a problem. Not this year. Both boys have been burned twice in the last three weeks. Both times we were at the pool for three hours, and even with extra applications, they both ended up fried. So, my tri and runner friends, what are your sunblock tips? Got a brand that stays on through constant immersion for three hours? Or one that the second coat goes on well on damp bodies and soaks in fast? Give me all your tips so I can keep my fair skinned boys from another painful sunburn the next time we hit the pool.
2. RevolveDC has notified me of the winner of the 5 pack of rides! The winner is Courtney of Running with Perseverance! Thanks to everyone who entered. Courtney, email me at mcmmamaruns at gmail.com for your code and directions on how to use it.
And a question for you all:
Running is my anti-depressant. I am hanging in there with just staying active, but I’m having a really hard time falling asleep at night. Thankfully, once I fall asleep, I sleep soundly, but it takes FOREVER to relax without my run. Got any tried and true suggestions for winding down?
