will run for pancakes

Saturday was the Skyland Mountain Run, sponsored by a local church. We start from an old historic ranch and run up Highland Road, the same one I do most of my long training runs on.

I love my Gap running skirt, so you can make fun of me all you want but I think it's pretty cute. Especially with those compression socks that I wish I never had to take off ever.

It was a hot day and I started out a little fast so I will not confess my time to you here. Let's just say I did some amazing comeback miles after walking partway due to shortness of breath and tightness in my chest and lungs. Not sure what was happening but I suspect the prolific Scotch broom that grows thickly on each side of the road may have had something to do with it.

Little P. ran the Kid's 1k and came in third, so proud! Then we had pancakes, eggs, sausage, bagels, fruit and way too much coffee (OK that was just me). Oh and lemonade. I love this event!
