Up and Out Early

Last night, I had the best sleep I've had in awhile (maybe the key to a good night's rest is writing a bitchy blog post, huh?) and I was up this morning at 6:30 feeling well-rested. So, after a granola bar and a quick cup of coffee, I got my running stuff on and was headed out the door for a short run when I impulsively decided to take Scooter with me -- okay, I was motivated to take him along because he was standing by the door looking at me with those big, brown eyes that said, "Please take me with you." I can't resist such a plea.

So, we just did 2 miles, but because I was with Scooter that means we ran 2 miles with half a dozen pee breaks, 2 poop breaks, one break to sniff a Taco Bell wrapper and one break to roll in a dead worm. Needless to say, the pace wasn't very consistent, but I figure at this point, who cares?

All in all, it was good to get it done first thing in the morning, but man alive, it was muggy out this morning! It was only 73 when we headed out, but the humidity was at 94% -- it was like running in a terrarium -- and it was so humid that when we would pause for whatever reason, my sunglasses would fog up!

But, like I said, good to get it done. This afternoon, I have a doctor appointment and then tonight we have our first "baby class." I'll let you guys know how both go. Ciao.

Scooter is your excuse for not doing three miles. Weakness!

But you are right - at least you got out there.

LMAO, are you sure you weren't encouraging him with all those stops....especially rolling on a dead worm, too funny!!!

Good job, foggy glasses and all.

Rolled on a dead worm - love it.

Maybe I need to do a post along the lines of 'man, it really sucks to not have a whole bunch of free money show up' or 'being this slow is a pain, and it'd be super cool if I were somehow faster' :)

I know the feeling of running into a greenhouse. It was good that you got out for your run.

MCM Mama said...

Good job getting out there, even if it was at "Scooter" pace. Have fun tonight. ;o)

Marlene said...

Sounds like a good start to the day!

Good luck with the doc and have fun at baby class.

Glad you got some sleep!
I don't even know what a terrarium is! ha ha.

Good luck with the baby class! We are doing one big Saturday bonanza baby class in August. I'm sure it will be edge-of-your seat excitement from start to finish. :)

Walking with Wex is the same. He bypasses worms for dead rolly-pollys and bird poop in various stages of decay.

From reading your last few posts sounds like you are right on target. Soon it will be over and things will...sorry, not go back to normal! Have fun! Can't wait for the news....
