You will not often hear the words “wake up early” and “run” in the same sentence in my life. I am not a morning person. I could easily sleep most of the day away. Even with kids, I often don’t get up until 8am on the weekends and will sleep later when I can get away with it. (Those of you without kids may not realize that 8 is late, but it is.)
The boys went back to school today, but on a delayed schedule, so Shoo was only going to be at preschool for one hour and 50 minutes. When you factor in drop off and pick up time, that left about an hour and a half. Yes, I can run 7 miles in an hour and a half and maybe even get in a shower, but I just wasn’t feeling like I wanted the pressure. So, this morning, I got up when Beer Geek got up at 5:45 and was on the treadmill by 6:10. I knocked out a 7 mile progressive run with an average pace of 9:43. It wasn’t awesome or amazing, but it was ok and it was done right as Shoo woke up. Perfect.
I’ve received a little bit of sunshine from both Marlene
and TMB at Racing with Babes
! Thanks! I’m passing it on to the most recent 12 commenters on my last post. I honestly would like to give it to all my commenters, because you have truly helped me maintain my sanity while dealing with all this snow.
Finally, a giveaway update! I am swamped and feeling a bit pressured these days. 10 days of barely leaving the house have really put me behind on some projects. Because of that, I’ve decided to postpone my BIG (ie Beer Is Good) giveaway until May. Why May? Because my 2 year blog anniversary, my 2nd marathon, and Beer Geek’s and my 15th anniversary all happen within a few days of each other in mid-May. So stick around for what will hopefully be a really awesome giveaway.
To tide you over, I’ve got a little something. The good folks at nuun
sent me a care package to share with my readers. I’ve mentioned my addiction in the past. I love this stuff!!! So, check back tomorrow or maybe Thursday (what can I say?, I’m indecisive) for the details!
