Today was long. But so good.
It started with a nine miler. I’d be lying if I said I had been looking forward to it. My last several runs have been rough. I’ve felt like each step was a challenge- and I had a lot of mental road blocks. My great friend, Kaitlin, got me started on a podcast (#myfavoritemurder) and it’s creepy, but wonderful. I started on episode one last night, so with murder on my mind… I drove to meet Kaitlin at 5:45am at a new running path. I’ve never been so aware of how easy I would be to murder than I was for the 3 minutes I waited in my car for her. It was so dark. And there was no one around. Then she got there, and I didn’t feel much safer. We headed from the parking lot to the path and it looked like we were walking into the nothingness. Thankfully, it wasn’t as dark as it looked from afar, and there was some moonlight trickling through the trees. The sun slowly started to come up- and everything was BEAUTIFUL. There was a chill in the air- a mist along the ground… and you guys? BAMBI was there!
The first two miles felt good, but some how long. I was surprised we weren’t half way done by mile two- but we felt good and strong, and had so much to talk about.
We got done and I got home at 8am which gave me exactly 25 minutes to get ready for work. I showered- but didn’t bother to wash my hair. It felt disgusting. I got a stupid amount of compliments on how cute it looked. Remind me to be filthy more often.
Work was… interesting. On the whole, it went as well as a ten hour day can go after a 9 mile run. Some stuff happened that is going to cause trouble down the line- but nothing that can’t be managed. Luckily, no one pooped anywhere inappropriate today.
I came home, and not only had my wonderful, amazing, and terribly handsome boyfriend repotted our plants and done a bunch of cleaning, he also made me swordfish with homemade compound butter that I would be happy to eat with a spoon! It was all so delicious. My only complaint was there wasn’t more to eat. That’s always my complaint… and maybe why I struggle to lose weight… but it was THAT good.
After dinner, we went to Oberweiss for a chess date. He had a strawberry shake, and I had an amazing view of this hottie.
Total day- five out of five stars. Would recommend.
Tomorrow should be pretty great. I do have to work- which is unfortunate… BUT I only have to work an 8 hour shift! Eight and skate! And I may or may not be wearing a costume. (By that I mean I am for sure wearing a costume.) See you tomorrow!
