Blonde Runner athlete post: Bug in the eye

cartoon bug

On occasion I will run without my sunglasses to avoid getting “coon” eyes.  However I got a bug in the eye on my run this morning (and I wasn’t even on Legacy).  Can I just say, it’s hard to maintain 6:30 pace when you have a bug in the eye.  I am sure all the oncoming cars going by were thinking I was flirting with my constant winking.  LOL.  Despite the bug in the eye I was able to hit my goal time for the run.  I think I will wear my glasses next time.

Happy Bug-less Running,

Coach Lora Erickson
