Little incentives to do well


Wednesday, January 02, 2013

emoticon I now have a map of the Calgary marathon route on my bulletin board at work. It's long. Yes, all marathon routes are long, but this is one I *know*. Shrinking the little red line so it fits on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper doesn't make it any easier. The halfway point is in my old neighbourhood, which definitely didn't feel close to downtown when I was commuting there on the bus, and I have to both run there and back. With little twists and turns and detours, too!

The map is hanging in my face so that I remember that route every time I glance over when I'm thinking of how nice it will be to go home and crawl into my fuzzy socks right after work.

Because it turns out 42 kilometers is a really freaking long distance. Who knew? emoticon

emoticon Oops! Hit the post button. Must type quick to avoid embarrassment!

emoticon I have a dermatologist appointment in a week. I want to be fairly fit and healthy fior it anyway, but when I looked up the office to make sure I had the right address, I came face to, er, picture with a doctor who's not the kindly older gentleman I was anticipating. Now, I'm very happily married, but there's just something about semi-attractive doctors that makes you want to make sure the legs are shaved, y'know?

Yeah, I'm shallow.

emoticon I'm totally putting on my epic geeky playlist for today's run so that I can mentally cast myself in that cheesy fantasy novel I was writing back in high school. Just because.

emoticon I'm making what should be awesome soup tonight.

emoticon I have new toys! Along with the Garmin, I have a nifty headlamp that should hopefully make me look like an oncoming train.

emoticon Oh crap! It's already 4:43? Time to get changed!

    Oh yeah, I shave too when I see certain doctors. Hehe! Happily married, but that doesn't stop me. Hey, we gotta look good regardless, right? emoticon
