I’ve been channeling my inner Emily and Katie lately and, umm, not showering a lot. I’ve found that if I shower before my run, I have a really hard time getting motivated to run. Usually this is not a problem as I get up, get the kids ready, drop them off at school (yeah, I am that mom), and then run.
On Mondays, Shoo doesn’t have school, but between playdates and Beer Geek working at home, I can usually knock out a short run. This week I wanted to do 6 miles and just couldn’t squeeze it in. So, I hit the road when Beer Geek came up from his office. Had a lovely 6 mile run (more on that tomorrow) and then immediately started dinner. By the time I had an opportunity to shower, I was no longer sweaty and really just felt like going to bed. So, I did.
Today, I got up, took the kids to school and then ran a not nearly as lovely 4 miles. I did take a shower after that run and I’m pretty sure most of the moms at pickup were thankful. ;o)
