We decided…about five minutes after posting my last blog post….to run the Revel Half Marathon.
Full disclosure we have totally been known to ditch a race or change our minds based on the weather, our training, wild ass plans to head out of town, etc. Neither of us has registered yet but we both have the weekend off and I have wanted to run the race for a few years. She’s talking herself into it.
We’re mixing up our training with hiking so yeah…it’s totally under control.
This morning I had 47 things to do and 12 minutes to do them and I’m making time for me. So I dressed to run and headed towards the door only to be met with…
Um…no..Dude. This MY run. We’re going to go LATER. Right now I have to run by myself. I only have a half an hour. Just enough for a quickie. I don’t have time…
he was persistent. Did i ever tell you I’m a sucker for those pretty little puppy eyes?
I WOULD leave him but then when I’m running I think…what if I don’t take him and something happens. He’s twelve years old. This may have been his last day to run and I blew him off! Worst puppy mom EVER.
I get it. I may have slightly been conned by the cuteness but …
Malachi and I had a nice run this morning.
I had a very short time to do it so we cut it short and just ran about a mile. He not happy about the shortcut so he walked the second half in protest resulting in a 40 minute- half hour walk. Damn puppy.
It’s supposed to be pretty gorgeous so I’m going to run when I get off work.
Here’s a dilemma. You have two choices…
1. you have so much work you work a little overtime every day for four days so you can have your day off Friday
2. You leave work on time every day and come in on your off Friday…
What would YOU do?
I chose option B…I’m still trying to decide if it was the better option but I”m so tired of working late I just wanted to go home.
we’ll see how it goes tomorrow…dentist day, running day, work day. Gonna be a long day.
Monday I ran 3.5 miles and walked the dog. It was cold.
Tuesday I just ran 2.5 miles because I was pretty sure I had the flu.
Wednesday I didn’t have any time so I was a slacker. Does it count that I’m certain I got in 10,000 steps running all over the church and up and down the stairs? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
Today I started the day with the puppy. We’ll see about the rest of the day but I’m pretty set on running after work…#savemyself
