Hungry Runner

Putting the “Runner” Back in Hungry Runner

Honestly, for a girl who calls her blog The Hungry Runner, I haven’t been living up to the Runner part of my name lately. I blame it on IT band syndrome, a week-long foot injury, and a lack of sunshine. I know, I know. Runner problems. You don’t want to hear them. I’ll stop now.

Please, enjoy this blurry Instagram photo that is the only “proof” of my run today.

I hit the trails for what was supposed to be 7 miles. However, my non-existent sense of direction got the best of me again. Except this time, instead of forcing me to run more miles than I had planned, it ended up cutting my run a bit short. Don’t ask me how I pull such wizardry off. I honestly have no idea how I ended up going back in the direction I came from when my intention was to run a loop. When you’re me, these things just happen.

The good news is that this is the first time where getting lost actually worked in my favor. It actually turned out to be a godsend because the second toe on my right foot decided to split open at the beginning of mile 6.

I limped the last half of a mile home. Good times.

Who else went for a run today? How’d it go?
