First, go over and give me a pity vote. Jess is kicking.my.a$$. She may be a better writer, but hey, I’ve got the beer!
Back already? OK. So today, I headed out for a “recovery run”. I wasn’t really in the mood to run (I’ve been staying up too late and I’m dragging these days), but it was beautiful outside and the boys were at school. One can NOT skip a run on days like that. First mile was 10:29. Meh. Figured I’d run two more and call it a day. Then I remembered I was near 500 miles and couldn’t remember exactly how many I had left. Mile 2 came in at 9:40. That’s better. Mile 3 was a lovely 9:25. OK, now how much more do I need? Oh, screw it, if I do a full mile I know I’ll hit 500, so mile 4 in 9:10. Well, that was a nice progression run! Total miles as of today? 500.9 Guess I didn’t have to run most of that last mile after all.
My mileage goal for the year was 1000 miles, but even with cutting back after the marathon, I think I’ll be passing that in November. My new goal? 1111.
On a totally different subject, I think I may need an arugula intervention. I always buy a 5oz package of arugula when I shop on Monday. It used to last me until it went bad. Last week I finished it by Wednesday. This week, I have enough left for my dinner salad tonight. Is it still binge eating if the food you eat by the handfuls while reading blogs is lettuce?

Already at 500?….wow!!! I should definitely switch to lettuce…this morning I was eating girl scout cookies while browsing some blogs. 🙂
Voted! Also, arugula? You're silly.
I say keep shovelling that lettuce in your mouth! Congrats on the 500 miles already!
Lettuce doesn't count. Just if you start turning green then it's time to back off :)Congrats on 500 miles already!
Nice job on the miles!! It inspires me to get on mine and push harder!!!I eat frozen mixed berries by the bag full. I go through about one a day. I must need something they have in them. Maybe its the same with the greens!
you should win over Jess. you run WAY more…she barely runs 20 miles a week.i voted for you.
I'm only at 500 miles if you include the walking and hiking miles. Congrats!!!
If you're going to have a binge, better it lettuce than cookies :). Great work on the mileage, you're coming along so well!
Look at you rockstar! 500 miles is awesome!
i voted for you! i am in such awe about your miles! way to go!
Lettuce? How worthless. Next time get some spinach!
Hahaha, if you can eat that much lettuce, you definitely don't have a problem. Congrats on 500 miles!
How hilarious! I am totally in love with arugula. I have a problem.
500?! Awesome! High five to you lady! Great goals! I hear you on the guilt that could potentially set in when we don't take those beautiful days by the horns and ride (run) them out 🙂
500 that's awesome! I never kept track of miles, I may just do that, it would be interesting to see what I can log for the year.And great question about the binge….hmmmmm
Congrats on 500!!! Well on your way to 1111!!
Congrats on 500! WOW! Bingeing on arugula? Now I've heard everything!
Holy smokes! That's a lot of running already. Great job!!
Congrats on the 500 miles! Wow thats a lot for 4 months!!
I'm pretty sure you're the first person I know of that binges on lettuce! And I gave you a vote–I think you did an awesome report.
Very smart of you, never skip a run on a beautiful day, especially when your kids are at school! Hmmm, you're a lettuce addict? You crack me up!
Nice job on reaching your 500 already! Wahoo!
If only I binged on lettuce. Congrats on the mileage.
Congrats on hitting 500 already, that's awesome! I think you're okay with the lettuce. 🙂
holy smokes lady 500!! Great job! I voted for you!
What are you attempting to do? Make the rest of us look lazy:) Wowzer! Lady, way to bust out the high miles:)
Nice job on hitting 500 miles already!
500 AWESOME!!!!! Nope eat all the lettuce you want! Eat up girl 🙂
Congrats on 500! I WISH I could say I was hooked an arugula! (mouth full of pecan pie as I type this)
Wow! Congratulations on getting to 500 miles in only four months!
I stuff handfuls of spinach in my mouth…arugula is too expensive for binging! I buy the value bags of spinach….
Way to go on the mileage! I think I need to go and find some arugula…Voted! Love the medal!
500 miles? AWESOME!!! Like the new goal.I looooooooove arugula.
500 – GREAT WORK!!
Nice job on the miles! Whoo hoo! I love that your binge food is arugula – I need to take a page from your book!
That's a LOT of arugula! I think that's a safe thing to eat though – better than my recent Pringles addiction for sure! Hooray for 500 miles too!
