Best Day…Sort Of, Maybe, Close…
I have to tell you that today was the best day ever! Jazz hands.
Well, maybe not ever but it was certainly close. I didn’t have to work today (thank you Mr. President) so I was able to fill my day with a mix of must-do’s and don’t care-do’s. Really, what more could you ask for?
I slept in this morning for the first time in a long time….praise Jesus. I was apparently worn out from all the excitement in Steamboat and needed to re-set my body. 10 hours of glorious beauty sleep.
Anyways, the next best thing to sleep, breakfast. I luv me some breakfast. Bet you can’t guess what I ate? Darn, your good….yup, scrambled eggs, toast with strawberry jelly, and a big ol’ cup of coffee. It was delicious.
Even though I wished I could have spent the whole day on the couch watching Food Network in my p.j.’s while eating Nutella from a jar, I did have some cleaning up to do. You know, laundry, dusting, vacuuming, blah, blah, stuff that I need to hire someone else to do.
I will say that it went by rather quickly because the next thing I knew, it was time to put my running shoes on and head out the door. I had to run 16 miles today according to ol’ Hal. I couldn’t have asked for a better day weather wise, sunny, 45 degrees with a slight breeze. This is the weather you dream about running in.
The run went surprisingly well, although there were a couple of moments were I asked myself:
Self: “Why are doing this? Why even bother? Why are you so slow? You could stop right now, have a delicious hamburger with a chocolate milkshake and all the pain would disappear.”
I eventually put evil Lauren runner aside and focused on breathing, stretching out, and relaxing. It took every ounce of me to finish, but I did! (Note: extremely slow time, don’t judge.)
