I just couldn't take it anymore!!!!!! REST REST REST, a week of rest.
I got my 4 year old on the bus, then quickly went and dropped something off at the library. During my quick drive to the library I saw people running. AHHHHH They had perfect form. They looked like they were just flowing down the road. I decided no more rest. I know I have a cold, I know I just ran Chicago 1.5 weeks ago. But I cant take it. I looked in my rear view mirror and my 3 year old son was asleep in his car seat. WHAT , can I get a run in this afternoon?? I ever so gently picked him up out of his car seat and laid him down in his bed. (he didn't even move). I then changed clothes ( I don't think I have ever changed into my running clothes so fast).
OH, it was like I met a long lost friend. Me and the treadmill meet again. It was weird at first having no specified mileage to run, so I just ran. Started off slow and then at the end of my 3 mile journey cranked her up. I didn't realize until I got off the treadmill how badly I needed that run!!!! It felt so nice.
I am officially signed up for the Kalamazoo Marathon. Let the countdown begin.
I wanted to share a sign someone said they saw during their Marathon (right around the 20 mile mark)- I am defiantly going to have to remember this one - In every WALL there is a window- Open it!!!
How awesome is that. Open the window , don't hit the wall!! LOVE IT
Hope everyone has a great day.
** I originally posted this message yesterday and called it Wonderful Wednesday, as I was laying in bed last night it dawned on me, wait a minute it isnt Wednesday, it is Thursday. Maybe it is the lack of running**
