Whoa-oh, We're Halfway There

Halfway through the month of May and this is what Map My Run looks like:

If you don't want to click on the picture to make it bigger, essentially it is me streaking away. I feel pretty darned proud of this, not gonna lie. Here comes the horn tooting...BEEP BEEP!

I wish my horn sounded more like a semi's. HOOOOOONK. HOOOOOOONK.

I could tell it was raining when I woke up this morning. After I pulled on workout clothes I stood at my front door for a few minutes and assessed the situation. "Meg," I told myself. "You ran in an effing blizzard. A little rain isn't going to hurt you."

So I ran.

I'm glad I did because it wasn't even really raining, more of a light drizzle. I would've been ticked off at myself for letting a light drizzle keep me indoors.

Because it's been a while since I've run this steadily I have had to play mental games to keep me going during my runs. I do a lot of "Well, you're just running 1.5 miles. Run 1.5 miles away from the house and then 1.5 miles back. Two short runs." I haven't had to this much before my brief hiatus. I might start listening to some music with one ear bud while I run just to provide a distraction.


  1. Wow! Congrats on the streak! You deserve to be proud of that, AND the return to running!

  2. You go girl! Keep that streak going! You can do this!

    1. I am competitive by nature so competing with myself seems to be working.
