I like to keep it real here on my blog. So are you ready to see my highlight run of the week? It was right here:
Oh wait. What? Did I run on my couch? NO, you silly goose! That's me NOT sitting on my couch!
Here's the actual view I had with the sun rising and a cool breeze in the shade:
You see, sometimes keeping it real is being honest that you were lucky to get off the couch that day. Today was that day. However, in equal honesty, there was a lotta walkin' today. I made a rookie mistake. I ate a salad for dinner last night and nothing before I went out this morning. So I was having a great run up until about 3.5 miles. And then there was a lotta walkin'. I also neglected to plant water on my route. AND I headed out on a stretch of road that I know, good and well, does not have a single place to get a drink. Rookie mistake. I had to wait til I was a half mile from home before I could sneak into CVS and drink from their refreshingly freezing water fountain.
So there it is... the good, the bad, and the ugly about my run today. My highlight? Doing it at all! 6 miles... check.
