-I was too busy with work and how could I be expected to be on my feet all day helping with a big project after running 20 miles??
-I didn't eat enough carbs to run that far (my stomach full of spaghetti knows that is a phony excuse)
-My foot was hurting. I've had some achy pain on the outside of my right foot which doesn't hurt when I run but really aches when I stand or walk.
After debating this in my head for about 40 minutes I sucked it up, got out of bed and got ready for my run. I wasn't sure how far I would go but I was going to run, and that decision was the first and most important one.
I decided to play a game on this run to make it a little more entertaining. I counted all the women versus men I passed (just the runners) to see which gender had more dedication ;) and guess what the score was?
Women = 67 Men = 42
It really didn't surprise me much. Girls rule! :)
Anyway.... with the help of a game and some Clif Shot Bloks (my new favorite) I made it 15 miles and was still able to work hard on my work project all day.
|One day I hope to perfect my picture taking WHILE running. Until then, excuse the blurriness of this one. You get it.|
