I think I've written this post before but since it's been a while I thought it would be worth revisiting.
Last night a group of us sang "the wheels on the bus...." as karate girl tried not to kill us for our lack of temperature control, as we drove to Atlanta to see a movie.
Why I Heart Running Reason #1: Because when else can you get in a van with 10 of your closest running buddies to drive to Atlanta to meet 2 more running buddies to watch a movie? A movie about running.
I decided to come to terms today with the fact that I will weigh 124 lbs until the day I die. Not that I think that's any big deal, because I don't. I just would like to weigh something different. Like a nice round number like 120. I might even take 125 if I thought that were possible.
Why I Heart Running Reason #2: Because no matter how much I weigh or how much I eat, they always seem to be in harmony with each other as long as I'm running.
Today, Downtown D came uptown to run 7 miles. We made it 6.66 miles (according to Garmina) when she tripped on a piece of pavement (who put that there?) and fell and scrapped her hands and nearly broke her wrist.
Why I Heart Running Reason #3: Because even when the Devil himself tries to stop us, we keep on running.
There are lots of other reasons why I heart running including but not limited to: making lots of new friends who don't care if I call them by their correct name or blow a snot rocket within mere inches of their ankle, dropping the hammer and pulling an all out w-i-n at a race I wasn't even planning on running, some race medals are really cool, it makes people who don't run think I'm weird for running and totally overlook all of those other quirky habits I have, and last but not least, because I can.
I will finish this week with an 18-miler and surpass 30 miles total for the week. A first in a very very long time.
On the wedding front, picked up two flower girl dresses today for my niece to try on tomorrow and I decided at which point I will enter the park where we are getting married...and no I won't tell you.
Have a great weekend!
