Sunday night the weather guys were calling for icy rain for the Monday morning rush hour. The federal government offered a two hour delayed arrival. District of Columbia schools called for a delayed opening. But when I went to bed at midnight, our school system still hadn’t made their call. I assumed I’d wake up to a delayed opening.
When I rolled over at 5am and checked my email, I got quite the surprise. Not the delayed opening I expected, but rather schools were closed. (I know they try to make the best decision with the information they have available, but let’s just say this isn’t the first time schools have been closed when there was no apparent reason why. Anyways….)
When I rolled out of bed a couple of hours later, I was faced with a choice: find someone to watch Shoo or hit the treadmill. My little darlings slept until 9:30, so I ended up choosing the treadmill.
1 hour and 47 minutes of Sweat Equity and Raising House on the DIY Network later and I’d completed 10.5 miles.
10.5 miles at a 10:14 pace. In socks. And my foot did not hurt.
4 runs and 39.5 miles left to go this week.
