I have a feeling this evening's post will be all over the place. I am tired, emotionally and physically.
Today was a good day for a 5 mile run. The sun was shining and it was about 50 degrees. I wore shorts in the middle of January! It was amazing. AN the RB and I hit the pavement for our run and it was one of those runs where we just ran in silence. No headphones, no music. Nothing. Just silence. Except for the creepy creeperton who totally hung out the passenger window, while driving, to cat call us. Really? Gross, get a life buddy. I would have punched him in the nose if I could have reached, it was one of those days. Poor guy had no clue who he was cat calling, he was dancing with the devil...And really, does that ever work, like do guys actually pick women up that way? Wow! A little tangent there! :) Anyway, we were both lost in our heads and clearing our minds and it was one of those days where neither of us wanted to be alone to do that. Just having someone beside you with their breath and footsteps in sync makes you not feel so alone. There were no words that needed to be said, we just needed to run. The only thing that would have made it better is if we were on an open road as far as the eye could see. Although I bet AN the RB, being the city girl she is (I am the farm girl after all), would argue that the houses and neighborhoods are just perfect. And so we ran...
Mile 1 10:00
Mile 2 9:40
Mile 3 9:47
Mile 4 9:50
Mile 5 10:00
It was a perfect run. Now, 3 tomorrow and 10 on Saturday.
Today I am grateful for:
All the wonderful people in my life who make me smile everyday, you know who you are.
My awesome neighbors who brought over a box of kid books that they didn't need anymore!
Making the commitment to run the marathon.
All of you out there in bloggy land who are working hard to live your life the way you see fit! We are in control of our lives and we are strong! You all are amazing!
