Now don't get me wrong, that doesn't mean I wake up giggly with joy for each run. In fact, Wednesday before tackling my tempo run for the day I posted this on Daily Mile:
And I saw this response right before I stepped on the treadmill:
Thursday had 5 miles marked on the calendar. I ended up running 5.24 miles since I just had an undying urge to round out my time to an even 45 minutes. Just because. Why not? This was to be an easy run day for me and my overall pace was 8'35". I felt good and even envisioned doing my long run today so I didn't have to pay the Kids' Club tomorrow. I haven't done it yet. I was up late watching 50/50 with dear hubby (good movie and I didn't cry as much as I feared) and couldn't resist cuddling darling daughter a bit more this morning. And I didn't HAVE TO run the 12 miles today. It is scheduled for tomorrow. Today is supposed to be a 1 mile rest day. I don't know what I will end up doing later. I know I will run. I just don't know which run I will do. I'll let you know.
orange numbers? I know I have gathered some new followers and want to welcome each one of you but I also want to explain the orange you see sprinkled throughout my blog. My Dad is one of my heroes and unfortunately he lost the battle to leukemia. In all reality, the time from when he was diagnosed to when he took his last breathe was way too brief. I don't think anyone of us expected our time was so limited and I still miss him dearly. There are still days I say/think/scream "I want my dad back" but I know he is with me each and every day. And the orange numbers are my sign of love for him and his battle with leukemia. It is a way I can remember him each and every day.
