I woke up this morning and apparently was still asleep when I made coffee because I forgot to put the basket back! Major fail. See? This is why I have to make coffee the day before and have it iced in the morning!
I felt pretty good the whole time, but have to say I am somewhat uninspired because I still don’t have a “goal race”. I love running and am trying to stay in shape so when I finally pick a race I can just jump right into training. But, it’s hard to push for 15 miles without a cause.
I need to stretch for real today. I am so tight and my IT band is getting angry. I can’t go to yoga tomorrow since it’s the most important day of the year. But, I will go by Wed. or else.
Okay, maybe I don’t need a race to be inspired to run because the whole time I just kept telling myself… “15 miles and then Whole Foods. Faster you’re done, faster you can go to Whole Foods. 15 miles and then Whole Foods… ”
I sipped my juice while walking around. Then, I hit up the Whole Foods hot bar. Yes, you can buy happiness. But, it costs $7.99 per pound.
As I was piling other organic, yet calorie dense foods into my card board box (read: Macaroni N’ Cheese!) a pretty girl came up to me. I figured she was going to politely ask me if I realized I smelled like cow dung as maybe I stepped in something (hey, I just ran 15 miles – it’s not cute).
Turned out it was a reader named Mary! She has a blog called What’s Cookin’ With Mary. She didn’t seem to judge the fact that I was covered in salt from dried sweat and smelled like garbage (which I should formally apologize for).
More importantly, she didn’t care that I was carrying 8 pounds of organic potato salad. And that reminded me of the other day when Ben commended me on staying with my Lenten promise to not eat frozen yogurt.
I joked that the only reason I haven’t went to Yogurtland is that would be the one time I’d run into a reader and get busted!
But, just now I realized that if someone was always following me around judgingly I might watch myself a little more.
Ha! Who am I kidding?!
Question: Do you live your life like no one’s watching?
