Today’s 3 miler in 90 degree temps left me feeling a bit comical. Joggers vs Runners. “Joggers, bounce up and down at stoplights. Runners, just stand there looking pissed!”

Which one are you?

::Hair Talk Tuesday - Let’s Talk Butter:: 

Where are my active Naturalistas? TGIN Natural posted this helpful cheat sheet for my active folks with natural manes. Next time you venture outdoors, butter up! I will definitely be investing in butter before swimming.

::Motivation Mondays - Stop Sitting on Your Potential:: 

Yesterday my Pastor preached on how we wait for the perfect conditions to do and become who we desire to be. Your potential exists without money. It exists without the support you think you need. Stop sitting and waiting for the perfect time, act today and unleash your potential!

::Lost In Charlotte - Running Chronicles::

While in Charlotte attending my Sorority’s conference I decided to go for a run. I missed the deadline to register for one of the luncheons so before getting to my homework, I go for a run.

The Westin Charlotte provides you with a map to use if you decide to run 3 or 5 miles. They also provide you with clothes and shoes if you need them to work out…I’m just sayin!

I went for my run. Got lost. Got extra hot. The small inclines were small but did a job on my legs (they are still burning). I managed to find my way back to the hotel and no sooner than entering the door, was a greeted with a towel and a bottle of water.

I have to admit, this was a great way to end a sucky run! Too bad I can bring that guy with the towel and water home with me. :-(
