I packed my gym bag last night - water bottle, ear buds and MP3 player, running shoes, bra, panties, Tech Gear running shorts and wicking tank top. I packed raisins and crackers for Gwen and an apple for each of us. I had shampoo and conditioner, a big towel and a wash cloth. I had my favorite Saucony running shoes. I thought for sure I was ready. BUT after I got Gwen in the nursery and went to change my clothes I found I only had ONE sock. I almost cried. Once that happened to me before and I dashed out to Bealls and bought a pair, but today it would mean getting Gwen out of the nursery because the responsible party has to be in the building. And you are only suppose to use the nursery for 2 hours and I doubt they'd let me pick her up and drop her off again and they close at noon. So, I was sitting there almost in tears deciding if I could run with one sock or no socks. If I didn't get my run in this morning, it would be after 8pm when I had everyone fed until I'd have time to do it since Gwen doesn't nap any more. I'm not known for after supper energy, you know?
Well, to my delight, into the women's YMCA locker room came SparkFriend Cyndi AKA Aquagirl. When I explained my dilemma, she handed me a pair of socks!! WOW! She saved my workout and my training week. Without her I don't think I would have gotten it done. I gave her one back and now have one in my laundry room that I will get back to her clean. She could have charged me $100 and I would have gone for it and not even felt ripped off - or maybe just a little. But she understood my problem and came to my rescue. What a friend!! Thanks again, Cyndi.
