This is my 100th post! Hooray!!
At the risk of sounding incredibly cheesy, I’d like to take a quick moment thank everyone who reads and/or comments on my blog. Reading your kind words and encouragement always puts a smile on my face. Whether is has been congratulatory comments after a good race or words of encouragement and reassurance after a poor performance, I am incredibly grateful to have your support.
This check in is coming a bit late because I have been having a weird week. I spent a long weekend in northern Michigan for 4th of July. Traffic is usually super bad on holiday weekends, so my husband and I left later at night and didn’t get home until 10pm. Since I am up at 5:45 am for work, 10pm is usually after my bedtime. Monday was just a sleepy blur.

And then Tuesday. Oh yikes. Tuesday was just not my day. Nothing terrible actually happened, just a lot of little annoyances that built up and managed to ruin my day. On Monday I got Chipotle for lunch and tucked half a burrito bowl into the work fridge for Tuesday’s lunch. Tuesday morning, when I went to stick a coconut water in the fridge, my Chipotle was gone. Who eats someone else’s partially eaten food? So gross! And now I didn’t have a lunch. So angry!
But then I was supposed to have a meeting with bagels available, so I figured I would just get a bagel for lunch. Except we the meeting didn’t have bagels. At this point I knew I would either need to face the rain and leave work for lunch or try to find something a the coffee shop in the library. I settled on grabbing a bagel from the coffee shop. Except the coffee shop was completely out of bagels and I didn’t have time to run anywhere else because I had another meeting starting in 15 minutes.
Finally, an hour later I was able to walk to Jimmy John’s for lunch. On my walk back to work the light rain turned into torrential downpour. I had my umbrella, but everything from mid-thigh down got completely soaked. So I spent the last 2 hours at work in soaking wet pants and shoes. Not comfortable at all.
I took Tuesday off from running and blogging because all I wanted to do was curl up with a book and disappear for a few hours. There also might have been a glass of wine involved. And pizza and a movie with my husband. Overall not a bad night at all, but it does leave me wondering if I’ll be able to make up my missed run this week.
