I really like these brain clearing posts. Or maybe I’ve just been so scattered lately that they help me loosen some knots in my brain. 😛
I was supposed to run a half marathon this weekend but the Slacker in me forgot to take into account the extra time needed to get every runner security clearance to run on a army base. Slacker fail. But then with all the rain that is predicted to fall over the next 5 days maybe that was a good thing?
My road to work is open and it is freaking awesome. It’s still under construction in the mornings and there are little mountains of dirt everywhere- they removed 20,000 tons of rock and dirt from the hillside!!- but it’s open!! That was the longest month. That longer drive was really getting to me.
So Monday was interesting. I was on the street side of the building when I heard a loud noise outside. We all looked outside to see what was going on. A truck had just driven over a big dip in the street and looked to be dragging something under it. Had it lost part of its engine? It slowed then blew through the intersection without stopping. By now we are all staring out the windows, then my coworker looked out the door and it all became clear. Dude has slammed into her parked car, tore it up and continued driving! He was dragging pieces of her car! WTF dude?!
I went for a run on Tuesday. Wasn’t the best but I mean come on…look at this…just awesome.
I’ve had to reassess my training for a few reasons. More on that in my weekly recap but I think finally admitting it has lessen my stress level a bit.
It’s a 3 day weekend, woo hoo!!!! Is it sad that I am looking forward to sleep the most? Then running?
