1 month anniversary trot

After an entire month of not running a step (well, that isn’t entirely true…I’ve ran…really ran…for at least half a dozen busses since I’ve been back and that totally counts…right?) it felt very good to get out today. My feet actually made contact with the pavement rather than ice and slush, it was 50 F and I wasn’t bundled in everything that I own. It was a bit windy though and I could totally tell that I hadn’t be out in a month (sans the bus chasing of course) but I easily distracted myself by babbling incessantly initiating stimulating conversation with my running buddies (Samia, Ian and our new running club member … and Bettle jumber extraordinaire … Alex 🙂

4/3/13 work out

3.34 miles

33 min

50 F with a wind x-(booooooo)

Threads:  Nike tank, Adidas Response running pants, shorty socks, and my arm warmers (a great dumpster-dive following the start of the Twin Cities marathon a few years ago)

Treads: Mizuno Wave Creation 11 coated in approximately 937 lbs of African dust

The 3rd

Today is the 3rd. So what?

1. Today is the one month anniversary of what will hopefully the worst marathon I’ll ever “run”…

@ 6:30 am. Ignorance is bliss.

March 3rd @ 6:30 am. Ignorance is bliss.

(PS. I think this is the red flag that I really need to write that race review don’t I?! One month later I best have gotten over my hard feelings of +5 hrs to write something resembling a rational post.)

(PPS…or PSS… Which one is it? I never know… Anyway, I also think this is the red flag and flashing lights and blaring sirens that I need to get my ass out for a run again. That and I think my pants are shrinking. Yes, it’s my pants that are shrinking, it certainly isn’t me that’s getting fat…)

2. Today is t-minus one month until my thesis defense!


Did anyone else realize today had some sort of significance as they walked/drove/bused/biked into school/work today? What is it?
