Tonight, I had my first night with nathan. Ang gave me nathan as a birthday gift…she’s so sweet. I’m excited to have my very own nathan…and a pink one at that!
For those of you who don’t know about nathan, nathan sports is a company that creates some pretty awesome products for athletic training. Check them out! If you’re like me and a company’s background and mission draw you in, their story and brand is pretty great.
Meet nathan (nate, if you’re close to him). As you can see we’re getting along great already…
Nate and I had a great run tonight. Breathing was great, legs felt pretty good and mostly recovered from the weekend’s long runs, and nate kept me cool.
After I had dinner (homemade spaghetti, meatballs, and garlic bread at mom & dad’s…mmm!) and took a relaxing nap outside, I grabbed nate to head out for a run by my parents’ house. Kid Rock, The Doobie Brothers, and Natasha Bedingfield came along with us as well…and everyone got along great tonight. I think I’ll be taking everyone out with me again in the near future.
Although it was a hot & humid evening, we managed. Nate was there for me…kept me hydrated and kept me cool. In fact, I’m pretty sure more water ended up on my head than in my mouth. But, hey whatever it takes–that’s why it’s necessary to carry water! Thanks to nate, I had a delightful run tonight…and I think I’m going to be hanging up the water belt now that I have nate. Sure, the water belt will likely be jealous…but I have to admit–nate has won me over!
As nate and I were getting back, my lovely mom was outside and she snapped a nice end-of-run photo. So, with that I leave with you an end-of-run photo for my end-of-blog-post photo. Happy Running!
First night run with nathan…sucess!
