Okay, It’s very rare that I’m this excited about something that I can’t wait to jump on here and tell all my peeps about. I just had to shower first and get this friggin picture to email from my phone so that’s why there was a delay.
So this morning I woke up and saw all the snow falling and though, hmmmm this looks like fun to go run in. So I quickly cooked and ate my breakfast then got ready as fast as I could. I missed the big fat fluffy snow I got the small crappy snow but whatev’s it was still cool.
I had told Anna that since she was running 12 miles on christmas I would do at least 5 on christmas. I didn’t get to it on christmas but better a couple days late than never right?
I started running and noticed my shoes were coming untied so I paused my My Cardio Trainer to tie my shoe (eventually I’ll learn to double knot my shoes before I start), then I unpaused it…. or so I thought. So I take off running again. I’m chugging along watching my breath move the snow out of my face running running stepping in water, it was a very slushy snow. Eventually I notice that my little buddy isn’t talking to me letting me know my pace or how far I’ve gone. So I ran what I found out later was .75 mi and it wasn’t tracked. So from that point I ended up running 6 miles. I hated it but I guess not too much since I ended up running 6.75 miles after I added in the .75 that wasn’t tracked.
I have to say I’m pretty effin proud of myself! The worst part of the run was the wet socks. Man I hate hate hate hate wet socks! They’re one of the 3 things I hate most in the world!! (bugs and headaches are the other 2 if you were wondering) This half marathon I’ve decided to do is still daunting but seems pretty do-able. Will I set the world on fire with my time, nope. But it’ll be a huge accomplishment after weighing 368 lbs 3 years ago. It’s crazy I’m kind of looking forward to it. November can’t get here quick enough! Boots to asses!
