28.22

I had a horrible run last week.

1. I was supposed to run 6.5 miles outside.
2. When I woke up, it was pouring rain.
3. Pouring.
4. Defeated, I headed for the treadmill.
5. I wore my favorite socks. I watched my favorite show.
6. At mile 1, I knew it was going to be a long run.
7. At mile 3, I wasn’t even halfway, but wanted to be done.
8. At mile 5, I thought I was going to die.
9. At mile 6, I actually got dizzy and lightheaded, so I stopped.
10. Didn’t finish. Sad face. Also, blister on the bottom of my right foot.

I hate running.

In response, I did what any logical runner does: I bought new shoes.

I’m typically a New Balance girl, but these Saucony gems caught my eye.

I had a small little 5k race this morning. 30+ people. NBD.

I was running with high school seniors and college students. NBD.

They were fast. Super fast.

But I was ready:

I once again rocked my favorite socks.

And while I didn’t have Jimmy Fallon, another guy kept me company.

And on the heels of a “bad run”, I was nervous. Side aches, rolled ankles and many other somewhat related fears ran rampant.

But I rocked it.

My official time was 28.22. PR!!!

And one of the speedy college students complimented my socks.

I love running!
