"I will run 2 miles today."

Sunday, January 06, 2013

Do you know that scene in American Beauty when Annette Benning is saying "I will sell this house today." over and over? That is like me on running days. I get up in the morning and start saying "I will run 2 miles today" and repeat until it is actually over. So I will run 2 miles today. The Y doesn't open until 12 so I will go as close to that time as possible. If the kids are behaving, I may take them as well and let them swim. I will update this blog entry when the 2 miles are done. This is the longest run I have done in many many years. Excited and nervous.

Oh, and I have been wondering how I am going to keep count of the laps at the Y. 17 laps make a mile and i have to do two. Counting to 34 would be hard while running and listening to a podcast. I decided to put 17 beads on a string and carry it in my hand, moving the beads from one side of the string to the other, keeping track of the laps that way.

Yesterday was a fun day. I drove to my sister's house about 3 hours away and had lunch and helped her put together some Christmas presents. We took our dogs for a walk before I drove home. When I got here, we played some xbox kinnect games (a Christmas present). I ordered the dance game but it hasn't arrive yet.

    Looking forward to hearing that you completed your running task later today. I hope no one will think I'm disrespectful, but these may become sort of "prayer beads"? Getting your body to its healthiest place is worth praying for (and worth running for). Best wishes!
