Why am I telling you? Because I told you I was going to embark on a 24-day challenge and I opted against it before starting it. Something inside of me wasn't at peace and life was throwing hints at me to back away. I am not saying the challenge is bad and it may be good for me later, but it wasn't good for me now. The only sad point is that by backing down it seems I may have lost a friend. However, I cannot dwell on that because like I said, I wasn't at peace and now I am. So if you have been waiting to hear more about that challenge, it isn't coming. I am sorry.

I really don't know what made today so fun and good but I loved each step of my run. I ran a progressive 3.38 miles at an overall pace of 8'52". I chose to not run more but to go dedicate the extra time I had to foam rolling with a focus on my glutes. Yep, that darn piriformis is a whiny one. It was the perfect start to the day!
And yes, I jammed to my music and really enjoyed Lose Yourself by Eminem today. If you really listen to the lyrics they can be applied to running in general or to the particular run you are doing at the moment. I opt for the clean versions of his songs but still do not listen to them with my darling daughter.
Today I am grateful for:
- Icy Hot patches
- My "baby" sister
- Bagels with jalapenos
- Birthday money from my Aunt that allows me to buy a bagel with jalapenos!
