I missed you a whole lot last week. Thank you for waking me up this morning and making my day so much better than it would have been without you.
This morning I did 8 miles at a recovery pace and enjoyed watching the makeover episode of Biggest Loser. In case you were wondering, I always have to have two water bottles when I am running on the treadmill because if I stop the treadmill to go fill up my water bottle I will not get back on and instead get back into bed and Billy doesn’t really appreciate it when I get back into bed still sweaty from a run. Something about I smell bad.

CONGRATS!! Email me and let’s get you your shoes!
I really love reading the Runner’s World Forums. There is a ton of great information and a lot of people that are just as crazy as I am about running.
Today I was checking out the Top 10 Reasons to Run thread and wanted to post some of my favorite answers that I found in regards to that question. Quotes below are all from the forum and I have no idea who the people are but they are awesome:
-Because my dog tells me to
-To look good on COPS if the occasion ever arises
-Can bore friends, co-workers and passing strangers with intricate details of racing and training.
-A good excuse to spend 3 hours outside not doing boring stuff like housework
-Keeps me from wanting to choke anybody. As much.
-To say I’m doing an easy 10 miler and mean it.
-To eat as much as I want (especially ice cream)…..no, this one was not from me.
What did you get your significant other for Christmas?
-I just finished up shopping for Billy but he reads the blog so I can’t tell you yet but I am interested to know what you guys got!
Who do you think will be the Biggest Loser this season?
-I have no idea…the suspense is killing me.
Do you agree with any of the above reasons to run? Any other funny reasons to add to the list?
