Back Away From the Bowl
Back away from the bowl, Nancy!!
I put on my running clothes at 7:30am.
It's now 1pm and I have not gotten myself out the door.
It's so windy and cold.
What is wrong with me?
I. Have. To. Run. Today.
I did it. Every step kind of sucked but I did it - about 40 minutes of shuffling and hacking. A friend made me realize that some people would love to be out there and can't be, so I decided, I should run because I can and FOR those who can not. (mainly I was thinking of Kent and Doug who have been sidelined with nagging injuries.) I laughed because at the pace I was going, both would probably be appalled and say, "don't bother" but hey, it was as much for me as it was yous guys. And, it's better than the couch and another handful of chex mix. And, it kept me going. I couldn't let the fellas down. Thanks, boys!!
The 40 minutes included time spent helping a lady corral her dog that was chasing ME. Was it a good deed for the day or self-preservation? Not sure, but it didn't piss me off, in fact it made me smile. He was a little sheltie, big dog wanna be.
I ran today.
Because. I. Can.
