My day started off really early this morning and after not getting any sleep the night before I was worried I would not be able to keep up, but after a good power nap I powered through.
This morning was the Run for Ella. It was really hot but early enough not to be miserable. I ran this years race in 3 minutes faster than last and felt so much better once it was done. I was really happy with my time this year. The entire race seemed easier, which either means I'm in much better shape or the trail was easier this year. Either way, HAPPY!
Now for some fun stuff about the race. I had so many of you let me know during the race that you were reading my blog. You know who you are out there. I am so happy you are reading and was happy to see you running out there today. Im not going to put your names cause some people dont like to be identified online.
Next and one of my favorites. As I would approach someone and get ready to pass they would glance back, and the majority of people would see a fat girl coming up to them and they were not going to let me pass them. ("I'm not going to get beat by a fat girl") I got tickled most by this because I knew I was going to pass them one way or the other. I know I can keep my pace. I have never noticed this before but I actually laughed out loud at one point. There was one girl that was not going to let me pass if it killed her.
And finally, I beat a friend who beats me in every single race I run in. So- she was running with her daughter, dont care!!! A W is a W! Love goes out to you, sorry I had to win. Ha Ha!
I think starting my day off hot made the entire race hotter than it actually was. I had an appointment this afternoon and I soaked my shirt with sweat. That was a little embarrassing to say the least. No more white shirts on 100 degree days. Then ballgames, and more sweat. I finally had to get in the pool to cool off a little bit. I have showered 3 times today and changed clothes at least 4 if not more. I just don't want to be nasty anymore.
I am finally fixing to call it a night, too many hours going hard, only 2 hours of sleep...I need to visit my bed. Oh and I got a new mattress tonight, THANK Y'ALL! My old mattress was really needing to be replaced. It had a nice little dent in the middle from the 300 lb girl that has been sleeping on it for the last 10 years. And pillow top, I am going to sleep soooooo good.
Hope y'all sleep as well as I hope I will tonight.
