Today I set out for a shorter run because DH and I both had to be out of the house by 8, and I wanted to make sure we succeeded. Right from the start this run was a battle. I had to tell myself every step of the way that I could do 2 miles. At the end I found myself making deals with myself, as I sometimes to. "Ok girl, you can run to the end of that fence." Usually that brings back my resolve, and I go that far, or farther. Today when I was striking bargains some other voice in my head, that apparently is usually asleep at that hour, woke up and chimed in, "Sure you can. But so what? It's not like there's a bear chasing you!" I ran past the end of the fence anyway, and on to the fountain.
