Both of our alarms went off at 6 this morning, I wanted to run and Billy had a paper to write. We looked at our alarms, laughed and fell back asleep until 7:20. Luckily he still finished his paper in time and we decided to go to yoga tonight and run a few miles before. Win-win-win.
I have a pretty low stress job (except for when I am on the freeway onramp with a 15 year old driving) but towards the end of the year it gets kind of hectic with all of the grading. During my prep I worked until I was seeing double and realized I NEEDED a 5 minute break. I pulled out the snacks and watched a few minutes of Up and before I knew it I was back to getting things done. Probably one of the best movies on the planet and it was a quick energizer to help me to continue working.
PS Pink Lady apples are the best. PPS so are hardboiled eggs.
After eating my snacks I had to put lip stuff on because heaven forbid I go 45 minutes without a new layer of it. I remembered that I could use my new Aquaphor. In the swag bags from the 1/2 marathon they gave us mini Aquaphors….best idea ever. I don’t know if you are supposed to use it on your lips but it is one of my favorite things…feels so good.
Last night when Billy was working on homework I decided to be really productive and surf the web (do people still say that) for way too many hours. I came across this and absolutely loved it:
My absolute FAVORITES from the list that I can relate to 100% are #s 1, 2, 5, 6, 17, 20, 22 and #7 will be happening today.
Which items on the list can you relate to the most about being a runner?
Do you have some to add to the list? You might be a runner if….
Do you have a stressful job?
