Running In Circles - Literally

~ from pr.caltec.edu

This week it dawned on me that I could get my runs in before I picked up the kids from school. So Monday I took my running stuff with me to work, only to be thwarted by a meeting I had forgotten about. So today was take two... I got all the way changed into my running clothes, and they called an emergency staff meeting as I was walking out the door. By the time the meeting was over I didn't have enough time to run. I thought that the universe had it out for me and my running plan until...

I sucked it up and ran at the track while Madison had soccer practice. Yep running the track is sure B-O-R-I-N-G! The only nice thing is the surface is super squishy and nice for my knees. When I was done with my 3 miles, I ran 4 sets of stairs on the bleachers (total burn in my butt!).

It was great to exert my strength over the powers of the universe, and get out there and run when the whole world seemed bent on preventing it!

Learned? 12 laps on the track seems WAY longer than a 1.5 mile out and back...

I am glad you got out. Especially after it being school meetings keeping you from it. I can't believe how often school meetings/parents/whatever gets in the way of my plans to leave early, go do this or that. So hooray for defeating that evil.
