And I have learned my lesson.
I had a very long and detailed post about how awful today’s run was. It would have certainly gotten me in trouble. You all would have yelled at me and scolded me. I don’t know what happened but for the first time in about 150 posts or so I lost a post…so it is a sign. I wasn’t supposed to tell you all about my freaky run through downtown T-Town. I’ll just say that for the first time I found myself uncomfortable and not wanting to be running alone. I will not be running alone in this area anymore.
Today’s run got me thinking about joining the MMA gym down the road. I would love to have the skills to just take someone down, seriously. Like, WHAM! BAM! That’s right… Oh, is your nose broken? You might want to get that checked out. Peace.
Here are a few pics of me honing my boxing skills last summer:
So yeah, I wouldn’t mess with me!
As for today’s run I had a 5 miler on the lineup. Downtown T-Town is pretty hilly so this run was full of ups and downs as well as crosswalks (and creeps and transients and some whacky dude who asked to bum a smoke. REALLY? Sure, let me pull on out of my sweet hat pocket). Not my best run but I had to get it down. 5 miles in about 47 min. tomorrow I have 3 on the plan and this weekend 9. Since I have Seattle Rock n Roll 1/2 in a bit over a week I think I will try for at least 10 this weekend.
Today I am grateful for:
Being at home, safe and sound.
A fun trip to the “lie-berry” to pick out some fresh new bedtime books for LB.
