Happy Columbus Day!!!!

Found this funny little cartoon on facebook.  It made me giggle.  Ain't that the truth, huh?

For the first time in forever my kids had school.  It's a little controversial in our town about this happening.  It's kind of a long story having to do with our teachers & their contract, etc. etc.  I very much love & support our teachers in our town.  I am friends with a lot of them.  However, I am seeing this day as another day that is getting us closer to getting out earlier in May or June.  It is suppose to be May next year.  I can't remember the last time we EVER got done with school in May.  EVER.  Including when I was in school.  So if we have to sacrifice this day, then so be it.  I don't care.  Make my kids go to school!  Get it done & over with.

Not what I meant to ramble on about.  Actually, I don't know what I want to ramble about today.  It's been a frustrating day.  Earlier I had an ear full to tell you.  I still do.  I just don't think I have the creative writing bend to make it sound all great & magical.  I think I'm too hard on myself when it comes to my writing.  A little of a perfectionist.  Me?  Perfect?  Haha, I'm the furthest thing from that.  Sorry, rabbit trail again.

So let me tell you where I am running wise.  I skipped today.  Had to teach a cardio class at 6 a.m.  Meant to go run this afternoon, but a certain Postal employee was not working today (yeah, that's right you didn't get any mail delivered today) and my day revolved around him.  So my afternoon run was nixed.  I will run per usual tomorrow morning.  I keep wanting to BE running at 4:30 a.m. but I fiddle around too much in the morning and can never seem to get going until 4:55 or 5.  (Slacker....I know!)  I'll try again tomorrow.  Getting an early start will allow me to run farther than 4 miles, plus I like to be done & back to the Y by 5:30 when it opens so I can squeeze in some weights before I have to teach at 6.  Having such a tight schedule keep me on the ball or failing miserably.  I'm often a combination of both.

My leg is still bothering me. I know exactly where the problem is, I just don't know why it's all flared up &  mad at me.  What did I ever do to my poor little body?  Oh, wait...don't answer that.  Ok, what have I done recently?  I've been good.  Just going for 4 - 7 miles run 4 - 5 days week.  That's all!  Yes, I have an innocent look on my face right now with a big ? looming above my head.

We'll see how my run goes tomorrow.  I want a good long run to clear my head.  Get my thoughts together to tell you what I want.  And to have some good prayer time with my Lord.  That is when I really enjoy my runs, when I accomplish those things within a run.  When I just get to be myself : )

  1. Ah, Columbus Day. Let's celebrate a guy who got lost. What's special about that? Didn't he at least stop for directions, though? Maybe not.

    It's been a week since I've run - sore knees. Time to get back to it. I did bike to Knoxville for the Scenic Drive on Sunday, so I feel good about that. You're still kickin' it, girl!
