AN the RB saves Lazy Runner

I have been in a slump.
I have wanted to run.
I have been thinking about running.
I have felt guilty for not running.
I have 15 excuses as to why I have not been running.
I have been beating myself up for not running.
I have been thinking about how hard it is to get into the
habit of, but how EASY it is to fall out of the habit.
I have been teetering on the edge of no longer being a runner.
I know, those are like bad words! Straight from the running devil!
I know!
I know!

Thank goodness for AN the RB! She met me this morning and we went for a nice 5 mile run. It had been pouring rain earlier this morning but it died down for 51 minutes. Not a single drop fell from the sky to land on us. Although there were plenty of puddles that we jumped over in unison and wet branches and bushes that soaked my arms. But in all it was a perfect running weather morning! Thank goodness! I have a sick feeling that if I had not run this morning I very well may have gone another week without a run. Ugh. So. Not. Good.

AN the RB snapped a few post run pictures for me. I wanted to show off my awesome running sleeves in action! They were AWESOME!

Today I am grateful:
that I got my act together and went for a run!
for a fun evening with some other wives from my hubby's work, including a runner!
for vacation on Friday!!!!
2nd and 3rd chances.

Run Happy friends!
