Think scientific whaling and how some countries kill whales under the guise of scientific whaling. You see, the claim is they need to kill them to learn about them. This argument goes against the intent of the Marine Mammal Protection Act.
But what does this have to do about my blog? It is a running blog, right?
Essentially, I need to soak up this information and answer some questions about where I personally stand on SOPA/PIPA before I link to more videos. And I think a Tuesday Tunes post with no video is kinda lame. Bare with me while I do some soul searching and feel free to leave me your two cents worth. I do listen!

My hope/goal was to run 10 miles before work today. Why? Just because. It wasn't on my training plan. According to that I was to do an easy 3 miles today. I got up on time and things seemed to be going my way until darling daughter started stirring and cuddling closer to me. Then it happened....she said "Mommy" and I went through all my calming antics. Want to wear Mommy's shirt? If I go running before work we can play dolls when we get home. Yes, I will try to come pick you up early. Sure, here are some more kissing hands. How about Mommy's robe? Do you want to cuddle with that? During all this, dear hubby is laying on the bed with the occasional "what about Daddy?" comment. Sorry dear, we love you but this is a girl thing. It will pass.
Needless to say, I got a late start in the gym so I opted to run a progressive run for 30 minutes. And then it was so fun I "convinced" myself I "had" to run a 5 minute cool down. All in all, I ran 4.29 miles with an average pace of 8'10". I think that is a good way to start the day.
Today I am grateful for:
- Keeping deodorant at work
- Completing a yucky stack of financial paperwork
- $40 sitting on the table --- dear hubby must of worked his magic and got some good tips so I can pay for our entry into the Valentine's Day 5K
- Compression calf sleeves and compression tops.....a review to be coming up soon but so far, I am in love!
- Almost 60 participants in the Leap Year Virtual Run!!!
