Ok, not really. The people-part was fun. Sarah/SkinnyRunner & Margot only called me slow & ugly twice, so that makes them decent running buddies in my book. And it’s true that the miles do go by faster when you’re gabbing and making friends.
That is, if you can suck in enough extra oxygen to actually get a sentence out without curdling over into a heap of sweaty spandex mess in cardiac arrest.
Really, I have NO IDEA what made this morning’s run so f’ing sucktastic…
- I never run in the morning. Nor do I ever wake up earlier than 5 minutes before I have to leave for work. Maybe the 5:30am wake up call and sleepy legs can be blamed?
- I always run alone. Even though we were running at a pace slower than my norm, I felt like every step took 50x more effort. Maybe because I was trying to match someone else’s pace, rather than relax and run my own?
- I’ve never run the beach path and God it was ugly it was such a distraction and made me really hate being outside
Regardless, 6.5 miles are done, and now I have 17 hours of free-time tonight to spend however I want. Which will probably be at the grocery store since we have half a box of pasta, a can of coconut milk, oatmeal packets & about 79 Gu’s in the cupboards.
I promise when we get married I’ll properly feed B. Pinky.
Alright, off to manage corporate America from my v-neck and sweaty ponytail. No, I didn’t shower, and yes my coworkers have been warned. I’m guessing I’ll be put in quarantine by the end of the day.
Until then we can pretend that section on personal hygiene doesn’t really exist in the employee handbook, OK???
* Does anybody else have a problem
playing nice running with others? Is this just another thing I’m gonna have to practice to get good at? (I don’t like having to do that)
