Better to be….
It’s way better to be able to run 5 miles and THEN keep going. So, thats what i did today.
First, let me explain my morning. So, i was blissfully asleep dreaming. Here’s my dream. I desperately wanted to take a day off (in my dream of course). So, i arose and called my running mentor/friend whom i run with daily. Here’s how it went down:
Me: “Hi, Ilene i’m taking today off, just wanted to let you know”
Her: What?? It’s 61 degrees and sunny my friend. Hang up, get dressed and get out here!
Me: Hmmm, sure OK!!
Then i wake up, turn on the TV and see that it is 61 degrees and sunny!! I’m all like WTF just happened? Was i indeed dreaming? Did i really make that phone call?? It felt so damn real. Like freaky real!! TED?? Was that you?? I’m so confused!
So, that all happened before i set foot out the door. But, i did it! 16 consecutive days of running! Today, i believe i did about 5 1/2 miles give or take. You can all see my backwards time up there right? 58.04. I ran a mile in 10 minutes somewhere inbetween. I did not come home sweating profusely. This tells me i made the right decision to NOT NOT NOT take a day off. Can you imagine how utterly defeated i may have felt?
Plus, and this is the important part. I am the chick doing this. I have a reputation to uphold for all of my running chick friends. Running chicks are an amazing bunch. We all, every single one of us ROCK!! Big fucking time!!!
Do not worry, these are NOT my running socks!!!
Gotta mention this because it pisses me off. Please folks give me some feedback, not only on the fact that i so ROCK, but on this article too!! Buck teeth??? WTF??
