I’m just a girl, trying to get hard core. And since I am going to see the one and only Gwen Stefani tonight with Redhead Running I figured what better to get hard core then to get up at 5:30 AM and run four miles? It was the fastest, sleepiest four miles ever. I just wanted to get it over with.

I ran at the gym in my complex all by my lonesome while I jealously thought of my roommate and my dog (the traitor) snoozing away. When I got back into the apartment neither of them even stirred when I opened the door, which is rare for the attack terrier, Lloyd.

In any event, my training continues as scheduled. Last night I ran 5 miles at the dreaded hills and was very happy when my friend in the BRA, Caribbean Steve, said I was doing too much too soon. Gotta love that! So tonight I am off to rock steady with Redhead Running and No Doubt. Can’t wait!!!
