Today I ... saw a fox as I was driving to meet Tami for our run date. At least I think it was a fox. I'm not sure I've ever seen one in real life.
If you were curious about what he said, it was something along the lines of, "What the hell is that massive thing coming at me? I think I might die!"
Today I ... ran in tights in long sleeves because that's what I packed last night but I should have ran in capris and short sleeves. It was 56 degrees at 5:15 a.m. Sunday, for reference, was in the 20s.
Today I ... learned what it means to run against the wind. For 2.5 miles out, Tami and I faced a brutal headwind that made it difficult to breathe, to move. We were going to cut the outing at 4 (running 2 miles out then heading back) but I said that we should run to the stop sign and then Tami convinced me to run to the turnaround for 5 miles. I agreed but only if she let me pause le Garmin to rest and breathe for a few seconds.
Today I ... subbed a senior fitness class. It was, by far, the most relaxed I've been teaching in quite some time. The workout was a departure from what I'm used to but I so enjoyed the women in the class. In past mini-dramas about whether I'm cut out for group fitness, I considered special population certifications and working with older people. Today made me think I should have done more than consider. (Note: I still like teaching boot camp and other classes but I think my days working as a server at Cracker Barrel really endeared me to seniors.)
Today I ... am grateful for leftovers. With a run early this morning, voting and subbing a class, I didn't have much time to pack a lunch. I grabbed whatever storage container I could and hoped for the best. I ended up with a half-piece of meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans.
Today I ... picked a winner for my No Treat challenge. Meghan R. will be emailed and be the recipient of a sweet prize (purchased by me) that includes my favorite sugar-free snacks, such as Gingerbread Larabars, Nuun All-Day and Snapea Crisps.
Now you answer: Today I ...
