happy hour on friday where pizza and booze flowed
two house parties on saturday where football, music, alcohol, and fried food were king.
needless to say, my 6am time to get up bitch! alarm was completely ignored on sunday.
a couple of hours passed
i rolled to my right and i rolled over to my left.
did a little bit of this:
i realized i didn't have a choice: today is the day i would reach mile 8.
running gear on, packed my energy gu and my water.
i definitely did not want to pass out in the middle of my jog.
off i drove towards the nearest golf course.
at least i wasn't the only fool there.
walkers, runners, and cyclists.
gave my self a little pep talk.
i can do this! i can do this!
it's only 2 times around the course
eight miles...eight miles...fuckmylife...eight miles!!
guess i had no choice.
so off i went.
why is everyone staring at me?
mental outfit check: blue socks to my knees, pink shirt, black pants, green headband.
mental note, turn on lights before picking work out clothes.
my pants are giving me a wedgie.
how do i adjust without....err....nevermind
stupid shin splints are not supposed to start for another 2 miles.
i'm not even at my first mile
am i going the right way?
where are the walkers so i could feel like the road runner next to them?
this is run waayyyyy easy.
running app says: 17minutes, 0.5 miles
punk'd! i got wayyyyys to go
damn cyclist getting in my way.
he veered into me and i had to move off the road!
awww look at the cute little ducklings

dog pops a squat...aaahhhhh

time for some gu
yummy apple lime gu

in the car and we're at...mile 4
stop to refuel
i can do this
breathe into a bag
gather more oxygen into my brain
ok, let's do this...one more time
waaah my knees are hurting
take a deep breath
slow it down...sllllooowwwww it dooownnnn
don't walk, don't walk

i definitely don't remember it the first time around
to the woman walking her dalmatian,

a little more running.

where is my car?
i'll start walking after the tree,
ok maybe after the closer stop sign
running app: 1hour 30mins, 8 miles
