I forgot what it was like before Marcus... Weekends were often dotted with lazy afternoons and dozing on and off throughout the day. Glorious stuff I tell you.
For the first time in ages Scott and I napped while Marcus did. BOTH TIMES. It.Was.Awesome.
We weren't totally lazy. Scott ran the Baker to Vegas run Saturday (which was why he was so spent on Sunday), and I got around to running my 9-miler Sunday after all the beautiful sleep.
|Only two more weeks until the half. EEK!!|
I'm still trying to decide if I enjoy the running and workouts more than crossing off each day with a specific colored Sharpie... :)
Mile 1 - Who keeps honking at me?! ...Wait, I think that's the song on Pandora. Whoops.
I still think I need to pee. I still hate carrying this water bottle.
Mile 2 - Why do I choose routes with all these hills?!
Mile 3 - I take back the hill complaints. This flat part of the route is zero fun. I'd rather run hills.
Mile 4 - I still think I need to pee...
Is that a pebble in my shoe?! UGH! I can't stop now, that pebble is going to have to wait.
Mile 4.5 - Half way point, turn this puppy around and start heading home. Hallelujah!
Mile 5 - I'm pretty sure that man was smoking a joint at that house I just passed. I am in California... When in Rome, I suppose.
Mile 6 - Hey, I have some of that runners gel. Maybe I'll give it a try.
Oh my gosh, it has the consistency of a lugee. (Not that I know what a lugee is like. I don't know how to "do" those.) And tastes like tanning lotion smells. *Chuck remainder of gel.* Gross.
Mile 7 - These hills are much better while going down them.
Still hate this water bottle. Invest in one of those water belt thing-ys, as soon as possible.
Mile 8 - Almost there. One.More.Mile. All.Up.Hill.
Mile 9 - Done! What a minute, I'm still a half mile from home. I ran out too far and miss calculated. Whomp whomp.
On the upside, my miles per minute is better than I was hoping. YAY!
...Yep, most certainly have to pee.
|For not "feeling" my run I wasn't mad at my pace. Might have wished for 9/miles, but this will do.|
Calling all runners, what flows through your mind while you're getting you miles in?
