Running with....Really?!?!?

A new segment for the blog.  I know I cannot be the only person that has weird things happen while I am out running.  Some of them are my fault, some I blame on my running partners, and other are completely out of my control.  You know, they are not always during the runs, sometimes while working out really strange things happen. 

So from here on out every time I have one that I think of sharing I will post under the Running with....Really?!?!? title!

Today I really wanted to run and was going to go by myself if I could not find a partner.  Well luckily my running buddy called last night and we planned on a 6-7 miler.  That was longer than I have run but my legs are finally back to normal (or as close as they will get) and I wanted some mileage. 

We started running a little bit late because we had to sit and drink coffee before we could run.  At about mile 3.5, I'm not sure exactly how it happened, we ended up in an appliance store buying a Christmas present.  Really?!?!?!?  It is in the top 10 of the strangest things.  Needless to say we only made a 5 miler this morning and bought a refrigerator in the process.

I told you.....weird right?

Oh, I wanted to run with y'all this morning! Chris had already made plans to have an early breakfast with a friend. He has never done that before! Anywho, Mrs. McGuire called me at 7:15. I was sleeping. ;-) I do want to run next week. Call me or text me!

Ha ha ha, Mom told me about this. I am so sorry she made you wait mid-run to do this. She is nuts! Her daughters would not put up with this, so remember you can tell her no.

She also told me about you pumping her gas for her (along with other gassy subjects).

Hilarious. Never a dull moment with her!

Jane,
Its things like this that make me love running. I think if it was the same ol same ol I would get bored. I have so many mornings that I think..."Did that really happen?" Sorry I had to ruin your Christmas present!
