These are some of the wonderful ladies who donate their time every week to weigh in the participants of West Jordan's Biggest Loser! The 2 happy ladies on the left are there EVERY Week with encouragements, even though i am so up and down each week. Last week a gain of 1.4, this week a loss of 1.
No more Junk from now till my 1/2 in 11 days..... yikes!!

Todays run was a sunrise run, and it was  a great morning for it. 51 degrees out with only a slight wind coming out from the south. I got out at 6:31 and was out looping my neighborhood till just after the sun rose around 7:00.
3.3 miles, 37 minutes.
I went to the running store to buy a new bra, and talk about my calf cramps.
The are in agreement, i am depleting my electrolytes, and they told me that the calf muscles are the first to react. So their solution, is to hydrate with Gatorade, or a different sports drink that i like, to replace my electrolytes while running longer distances.
A friend of mine at work suggested i try coconut milk, and.or coconut water.
So i will give the coconut water a try when i get a chance, other people drink it too.
But for my half it looks like i will be carrying Gatorade....

    Sounds like you had a beautiful run! it is warmer at your house this morning, than mine!! good time on your run!!
    glad to hear you have some suggestions for your calf cramps. i did buy one of those smaller bottles, i havent had a chance to use it yet, but will take it on saturday's short race and i will let you know how it goes. it has a nice little zip pocket on the hand piece, and the bottle is 10 oz small and curves to fit your palm...

    keep up the good work!!!!!
