27 Feb Checking in rather late today
I really struggled with posting this photo. It’s probably one of the most unattractive photos I’ve ever seen of myself. But it’s the only one that accurately portrays the fat lip and brush burn I suffered when skiing into grass at a relatively high speed threw me into the snow face first. (So, really, how could it be attractive?) I had a perpetual snarl on my face for a good 24 hours. And all due to my attempt to avoid hitting a rock with Todd’s snazzy new skis. Why was I using Todd’s skis anyway? That is the question.
Back to running, though . . . I did another four miles with Ariana (and kiddos in running strollers) on Friday. Exhausted from skiing, I skipped the gym that day. I took Saturday off as well, citing exhaustion (and too much to do) as the reason. And Sunday I went by myself for a “long” run of a mere 7 miles. Each time I up my mileage I feel victorious. Yet I know I have far to go. Maybe I’ll get to the gym twice this week. That would be glorious.
