Almost famous.

I still wasn’t feeling great on Tuesday. I had worked from home, random hours, on Monday and Tuesday. Monday, I hadn’t slept well and the time change kicked my butt. Tuesday, I didn’t get any sleep that night at all and I was a zombie. (I broke down and took an Ambien last night. And I hate taking Ambien.)

Tuesday my plan called for 6 miles with some speedy intervals in the middle. The speedy intervals didn’t happen. And neither did the whole 6. I decided some miles were better than no miles, and will attempt that run tonight.


heading out


I was dragging butt. And my left leg decided to act up again a mile in. I stopped to stretch it a few times, and it just never really loosened up. (Mental note: roll every day. For real. Just do it.) Worst yet, I couldn’t get out of my own head. Sometimes, I can just listen to music and let it all go. Sometimes, I can just run, hear everything around me and sort of meditate. Sometimes, no matter what I can do, I can’t block out the things that I least want to think about. My last year. The hurt. The pain. Being sick. Feeling alone. It all floods in, and the more I try to stop it, the faster it all hits me. I have not had a crying run in a while, but maybe last night I was due. It was all just too much at that point in time.


rainy finish


I finished my run and it started to rain for a bit. Tomorrow is a new day.


LFK famous!


On the bright-side, I guess the local news was at Pi Day. They had a segment on the race and when they cut from the news anchor to race footage, guess who was running by the camera? They made it look like I was leading the pack, so that was kind of neat. (But not at all accurate). It did brighten my day a bit though 🙂

    Just read your last 3 posts. You gotta give yourself credit where and when you can. You could have slunk away and given up but you keep coming back for more. That’s the sign of character. Head up and keep going 🙂

    Thank you so much! I had someone tell me that I am the only runner they know who would come back and finish up a race they DNF’d on. But I am just stubborn like that. it will be MY DAY again. I hope soon 🙂
