Ahhhhh. today was such a crazy day. i had to be at work by 6:30; work all day with plans all night...so the run had to be before 6:30 or not at all. my alarm on my phone failed me, and i didn't wake up until 5:09...so i decided it would have to be a very quick run in the very dark and cold weather. there was no time for driving to the gym or any fancy stuff. just put on my shoes and a hat and took off out the door, hoping to get in at least a 45 min. run before i had to be to work. the run ended up feeling very nice overall...SUPER COLD at first, but once i got moving i felt fine and enjoyed the morning silence and the fresh, crisp air. i ended up getting in 5.5 miles in 43 minutes, so it wasn't too bad of a workout for having to change my plans. i am tired tonight. it has been a long week. i don't know what my run will be tomorrow, but i know it will be occurring AFTER i sleep in.
i received my "Spirit of the Marathon" DVD in the mail today and i was so excited. i watched it at my mom's house and we both enjoyed it very much. it's quite a motivational movie...as always i enjoyed watching deena kastor be her amazing self. super woman.
