It’s Friday 13, I’m sitting here at work patting a child’s bottom hoping his eyes will close soon and typing this with one hand.
My mind is on two completely other things, though.
First off, hooray for me because I ran 6.4 miles Wednesday and that is my first 10k distance met!! I felt like I could go another mile, so I did. And hey, what’s another one? My knee brace was chaffing my other leg’s thigh and I tried to clear my mind of any possible exhaustion. The misty rain and the grey weather made it all worth while, though! I laughed hysterically at one point for no apparent reason (or so I thought) until I had realized I just beat any distance I have ever ran!
I literally took a random selfie in the Dollar General bathroom.
Second, my thoughts are on my wonderful boyfriend. I mean, could a girl who runs have any better of one? Jacob celebrated my run with me and yesterday we went swimming with his cousins. We ended the night cuddling under a warm blanket while watching “The Emperor’s New Groove” and he gave me a foot massage. I’ll never deserve him even if I have lived a thousand years.
Tonight my sweetheart is taking me out to eat and we are going to watch “The Fault In Our Stars”. I’m thrilled!!
Tomorrow I start working again on hill training and I wish you all a good weekend and happy running!
May your distances increase while your problems decrease.
…and finally the child has closed his eyes in sleep…
