Are there wings on my shoes?

6 Mar

Let’s rewind to Monday night. I don’t know whether it was the fierce wind that was mainly at my back or if I had wings on my shoes, but I feel like I flew right through my run. It seemed like my feet barely touched the ground and I rocked those miles. It started to flurry a little bit, which added a nice wintry touch.

When I finished, I had a pretty good runner’s high that lasted into the next morning. Gotta love those kinds of runs! I did an 8:00 core workout to top off the night.

I found the most awesome thing yesterday. Swedish Fish jelly beans! As soon as I heard these existed, I went on a search and there were 3 bags left at a nearby pharmacy. They all belong to me now.

Tuesday afternoon was pretty rough at the office and I really just wanted to get home, crawl into my fleece pj’s, and hide under the covers with a bottle of wine. BUT I didn’t want to give up on my mile a day challenge for March so soon, so I put on my running shoes at 9:00PM and fired up the Garmin to knock out 1 mile.

When I came back inside, the fleece pj’s were on in a matter of seconds. I didn’t go for the wine, though. A heaping spoonful of crunchy cookie butter did the trick, though.

I’m looking forward to tonight, as my schedule for today changed a little bit and I will be done at the office in time to meet up with my new Albany Running Exchange friends for a group run!
