well yesterday by the time I am getting around to writing this geez who thinks that you have to come to work and work, don't they know it's my sparkpeople time. Anyway goofiness aside, today I went for one of my normal easy training runs one that is just a time duration not a distance goal. I was running pretty well and thinking about all the reasons why I run: stress relief, health benefits, for those that can't run (ie my mom's transplant donor, fellow soldiers either injured or killed) and a host of other minor reasons. I turned down the street to run by what is now my aunt and uncle's former home (flood--long story short look up Cedar Rapids floods of 08 if interested) and I see my cousin and my aunt so at this point I am at 3.5 miles and I figure I will say hi so stop the Garmin (Garmin Forerunner305 love it). Turns out they are waiting for the local news crew to film their story of how their house was torn down and they didn't get notification, thankfully I didn't get interviewed (I was a super sweaty beast at this point), but it was strange how I actually held off on my run until later than planned and then unexpectedly turned down that street at the same time they were there. After being moral support while my aunt was interviewed I finished off my run for a total of 4.22miles and it was time for work. Enjoying some Thai shrimp pizza this evening yum. I know kind of an anti climatic ending but they can't all be exciting!
