I really like finishing runs before 7 am. Well, sometimes…I also love lounging around and procrastinating runs sometimes. As Todd will tell you, it sometimes takes me 3x’s longer to get ready for a Saturday long run than it does to get ready for a fancy night on the town, which says a lot because that is the only time in my life when I actually try to do something with my hair, put on eye shadow, wear lip gloss – and I STILL end up looking like this.
These are things that I always just consider to take up too much time on a day-to-day basis. I totally R-E-S-P-E-C-T you gals (and dudes) out there who spend lots of time on fashion and personal grooming, because I realize that I am just too lazy for that jazz and it takes a lot of time and effort.
Okay, back to the run. It was the first long run back since the Jackson 50/50 50-mile race on December 5 and which followed the Nashville Ultra 50-mile race on November 7, so it felt good to get that totally tired and depleted feeling back. Though now, for the rest of the day, I will be a hungry, hungry gal, so hide all your food if you see me coming. I just devoured an apple the size of my head, a yogurt, and a protein bar and I am already eyeing my morning oatmeal snack. Another fun fact about our run this morning—it rained on us the whole time. Which inevitably led to this happening (PS—do not scroll down if you cannot handle seeing a bloody knee—I do not want to be blamed for any spontaneous vomiting, passing out, etc).
Yep, slid on the mud with all of one block to go to get back to the condo. This is actually a post shower picture, so it has been cleaned up. When we got back to the condo, the blood was dripping into my shoe. I do not know how my falls are always an event. For those of you who know me, this will come as zero surprise.
Side note: about ten minutes before I bit it this morning, this kid yelled out of his window “don’t slip and fall, that would hurt” and I thought, “yeah, thanks idiot.” I guess I should have listened.
Alright, that’s it for today’s fun events thus far. I will let you get back to your job, kids, house, or whatever fun activities you have planned for today—but first, you need to respond in the comments with answers to my questions. The Bello’s are wishing you a blessed Friday! And remember not to slip, it might hurt!
Do you fall often? If so, is it typically minor or a big production (like me!)?
What is the dumbest thing anyone has ever yelled at you from a moving vehicle (keep it clean, please!)?
