25 miler..... Full sun and heat, But the hills were small!

This heat is killing me..... And its not even summer yet.


Saw this deer checking me out.... Yes, that brown spec in the middle of the field is a deer. Sue me...... The iPhone's zooming capabilities are substandard.

Purchased water at mile 11......
Seven miles later I ran out. Egats!


Took refuge in a supermarket after having gone three miles without water. Had a pee (if you could call it that), washed my hands and face, then purchased some H2O before sitting my arse down and filling up my pack.

My break was too long..... Everything seized up..... Looked (and felt) like I was running on razor blades for about a mile.


Noticed these......BBQ rib tasting chips. Huh?

What is the strangest chip flavor that you've seen or tasted?

Gotta run.

Wow, that sounds like a brutal run but I love the deer sighting.

Asia has some weird chip flavors - they tend to like meat flavors but really they are like overly sweet.

Ketchup chips, I know they are common in Canada, seen them once or twice down here in the states

That deer was totally eyeing you : )
Sorry about the heat, sounds like it's a bit brutal all over.
I'm with BDD, I'd say ketchup or pickle...

25 mile training run, girl, you are an inspiration!
Chips, no strange flavors, but I DO love kettle cooked cracked black pepper chips!

Way to go on 25 hot miles!

Wowza! Congrats on such a long run. I can barely do 4 miles right now but am hoping to get up to a 1/2 marathon by the end of the summer. Good luck with your training. I can't even imagine running that kind of distance.

Clarinda..... anything is possible when you put your mind to it..... take things one mile at a time =D

I always think ketchup chips sound weird...but I'm not sure why because I've been known to dip my chips in ketchup.
I've met very few chip flavors I haven't liked.

shrimp potato chips from ukraine, not good! Pretty picture of the deer. How handy to have stores along the way to buy water!

Great distance. When I lived in Portugal you could get toasted ham an cheese flavoured crisps, not bad actually.

It's really fun to hear what sort of chips people eat around the world!!!
