I Will Run 1 Mile

tomorrow for every time this post gets liked, reblogged, or commented on by 2:30 AM eastern time.  That’s one mile for every reaction this post gets in the next 45 minutes.  There’s a reason I’m doing this so late/early lol.  Make me sorry :)

———————————————————————————————————————————————-EDIT: 2:50 AM- Okay that didn’t quite work out like I planned.  Granted it is ridiculously late.  But thank you to burning-my-path for being the only person to like my post!  Ok I’m extending the deadline of my challenge to whenever I wake up tomorrow morning :)

Yes!

Yes!

Tagging Along For My Mom’s Doctor’s Appointment

I figure when we get there, I’ll just run back home.  The gas-efficient way to add variety to my runs :)

Wow, busy weekend

Haven’t had time to even log on, let alone post something.  Girlfriend from out of town spending weekend=she gets my time.  But now its back to reality, and I start my new job this week.  Had the first day yesterday.  8 hours of standing, pulling stuff off a conveyor belt.  YAYYY!  But the hours are 3:30-midnight, which gives me plenty of time to run in the morning, which is BOSS!

The Weirdest Thing Happened Yesterday..

I ran on the edge of a storm!  It was so awesome, I was on the way home, with maybe half a mile left in my 5.5 mile loop.  I was trying to beat the rain home, and I could see the clouds forming above me.  Suddenly they opened up and the rain came down, but it stayed right behind me!  Literally, I could reach behind me and touch it, but it stayed behind me!  I guess God thought I was drenched enough from my sweat :)

Did about 4 miles today, it was my hill workout for the week.  NOTHING kills me like hills!  But anyway, I decided to run to my number one favorite spot today.  It’s a bridle trail that starts at Berea’s largest waterfall, and takes me to this amazing place that I think I may be the only one to know about til now :) I veer off the path when it is at its highest, and climb through some woods, and then suddenly I’m in the middle of this clearing, with major roads just over the hill and the Cleveland Airport not more than 100 feet away.  But they can’t see me!  It’s so cool because I’m really in a super urban metropolis, but at the same time, I’m in a perfectly natural and solitary sanctuary.  Sometimes I run up there and lay on my back and watch planes fly right over my head so close that I can feel the heat from their engines.  So now you all know.  You’re welcome to share my spot, just don’t let the secret out :)

Sometimes when I’m bored at 11PM I bake peanut butter cookies with white chocolate Reese’s cups…
At least I got some protein, right?

Today’s Workout

I had to go out to Middleburgh Hts. today for a pre-employment drug screening, and I saw a great opportunity to get out on the bike.  My house very near the Metroparks, so I was able to take the bike trail almost the whole way! It was about 7 miles to the lab, and I was feeling amazing.  After I was done I headed back but decided to stop at Isaac Lake for a run.  There is a 1.2 mile loop I used to run there, so I ran it 4 times.  By the time I got back on my bike, I was pretty beat, and still had 4 miles to go.  But it got easier, and there were plenty of downhills.  But that tired and muddy feeling, as only us runners know, is more than enough reward.
