I've been waiting.
Today was the first day 3 out of 4 kids were off to school and I was able to.
- Running on trash day makes me ill. So many people don't recycle!! I know I've talked about this before...
- ...but running on trash day also brings out my hoarding tendencies. (I'm casting this as a good thing here, work w/me...) I saw a large stack of neatly trimmed, perfectly good boards tied up in bundles. 2 bags of clothes that could have been donated. Pots and pans. Toys. Stuff that wasn't junk but could have been useful to someone. I really hate our consumer driven society. I'm hugely guilty - just buy a new one! - but trash day makes me ill. People could use that stuff.
- I need to design comfortable, modest running clothes...
- Or start running in the country.
- And stop sweating.
- The jogging stroller pulls a tiny bit to the left...
- But it's also faster than me so when we get going it also pulls my behind.
- My wrists are not exactly comfortable pushing that thing! Maybe I'm too short? But thank God I have it!
- I have never paid more than $25 (the gifted strollers are an exception, but weren't paid for by me anyways!) for a stroller and this awesome jogging stroller needs to get much more use. I love it!
- Finding out your iPod is not charged when you are all suited up and excited to go for a run after way too many months would be what the teens call an epic fail.
- Hearing the church bells play a whole hymn while you run totally makes up for the iPod...
- ...and either that's a recording or some church nearby totally has a lot of bells! I was hearing chords and a melody.
- I need to find another way (besides hubby's phone, which he uses) to track my runs. No internet on my phone. I love seeing my splits and stuff. I am way too analytical to let that go.
- I love fall.
(For the record, distance was 2.2 miles and the first 1.2 took about 13 minutes. I walked the rest. I tried to walk quickly! But I was definitely dragging. Not nearly as much as I will be tomorrow, I know!!)
