Saturday I ran my FIRST 10 miler! After the run I decided that knee caps, hips and the little toe on my right foot are over-rated! Who needs 'em anyway? It's a good thing I'm slow. I can't imagine how many more things would be hurting or gone if I ran fast! I'm sure if my neighbors look out their window while I'm going past their house, they would wonder why I'm running in place! Every marathon training book or article I read indicates it's good to throw away your watch. Don't time yourself while training, just get out and go at a comfortable pace. For some reason, I have to set the stopwatch on my phone, place it on the piano, then begin my run.
I must enjoy beating myself up physically AND mentally! After my 10 mile run I asked myself, "Why?" Why am I doing this to myself? I must admit I do feel a sense of accomplishment at the end but would I feel the same sense of accomplishment if I forgot about the running and just took a ceramic class?
Speaking of ceramics...it's my high school reunion this weekend. When the letter to "save the date" came in the mail, I said to myself, "Hmmm, these 30 years have gone by fast!" At that moment I realized it wasn't 30...it was 40!! GAAAHHHHH! I don't want to party with a bunch of OLD people!
The last time we met was at our 20th reunion. I got a prize for being the "most changed" because I was 8 1/2 months pregnant! I wonder how I'll be different than everyone else this time? Will I be the only woman who has stopped coloring her hair? Do I really want to go?
High school reunions and running...WHY?
When we think of each other...
