One time Ben wanted to give me some advice about running. He is not a runner, but I thought whatever he had to say might be helpful since he’s super smart:)
Ben’s advice: “You never want to be the first runner of the day.”
Ben: “Because then you’re the spider catcher.”
Well, I was the spider catcher today because I was running in the dark at 5:30am this morning! I have to change my morning running schedule because Ben and I carpool and he needs to be at work by 8am. So, I had to wake up at 5 this morning to run 5 miles. I am exhausted! So I think I deserve this:
Breakfast was oatmeal in a jar. I finally remembered not to scrape my jar of nut butter clean so I could use it for oats But, my picture didn’t save in this draft and I can’t find it. Wtf.
About the carpooling…we left my car in CA to see if we could just live with one car. We are going to give it a couple of weeks and see how it works. So, for now I have to wake up at 5am to get in a run on weekdays. It’s probably for the best because I beat the heat, but it also means I need to get in bed by 9am (it’s a goal).
