Since it is Thursday, I’m linking up today with Amanda for Thinking Out Loud Thursday.
Here’s what I’m thinking about today:
- Are you flexible?
I’d like to think that I am. But if you are too flexible, do people take advantage of you?
The latest is that a running friend asked me to run a half marathon with her. She didn’t want to run it alone. It wasn’t one that I wanted to run (TWO loops around Central Park) and the timing wasn’t great (right before I leave for a Florida tennis vacay). But I said that I would if she could find an affordable hotel so we could split the cost.
She found a hotel and I registered for the race (non-refundable.)
The race is in NYC so there’s still meals, transport, etc. but I started looking forward to running it with her.
Now she sprung it on me that she cannot go. Her son wants to go a show that day. I total get it. Family is much more important than running.
So am I stuck running and spending a weekend in NYC alone and spending $250 on a hotel room???
Initially I freaked.
Sometimes things work out. Remember my crazy NYC weekend with the Russian girls.
I FB messaged someone whom I met at a local race who had mentioned that she and a friend (whom I don’t know) were running this same race.
I asked her if she knew anyone who needed a roommate. She said no but I was welcome to be a third person in her room.
Guess who’s sharing a bed with a runner that she’s never met? That would be flexible Darlene.
- Ok. Who didn’t love Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl performance? I’ve always been a fan so I was in heaven.
But now people are talking about her pot belly!
I should be so lucky to have my stomach look that good. Just sayin.’
- Working is tiring!!!
At the end of the day, my brain feel like I’ve run a marathon. But then at night, I can’t sleep. (Age, hormones, stress???)
I am pooped. I was too tired to run on Tuesday and too sick to run on Wednesday. (It could have been standing all day or lifting 80 lb laptop cases in and out or maybe the headache, sore throat and cold that invaded my body.)
Missing runs is not like me.
