Running alone

Surprise! I’m not going to whine about my 1/2 marathon training!

However, I would like to tell the man wearing a black ski mask and black hooded sweatshirt that I should have just sprayed him with my pepper spray on principle alone.

Seriously-what man goes walking alone before the sun rises with a ski mask and a hood?!

Clearly this man does not have a woman living with him. There is no way a self-respecting woman would let her man out of the house that way.

On the non-whiny side of things: I made it 8 miles without dying (from lung collapse or strangely dressed men)!

Seemed Like A Good Idea Long Sleeve

Maybe I can run a 1/4 marathon?!

“Therefore I do not run like a (wo)man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.” 1 Cor. 9: 26 & 27

Thanks, Heather, for the heads up on this shirt I need to buy for the race!

Run Gringa Run!

I signed up for a half marathon (13.1 miles). I’m glad I did. I would totally be wallowing in self-pity about how out of shape I’ve become since being sick for a couple of months if I didn’t have this race dangling in front of me like a spoonful of cookie dough.

If it weren’t for my two friends who are amazingly dedicated to running at least 4 times/week at 5:20am I wouldn’t be making it either. I hate running the cold-but I LOVE the feeling I have afterwards of being in shape and having the self-discipline to have gotten up so blasted early to kick my butt into gear. Suffice it to say, “No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:11

Anyone want to run with me?
