What's for Dinner?!?!?!?!?

This is a little different WFD post then the last one. I headed out tonight for a my first real run for the Cupcake Marathon. The clouds were pretty ominous but I figured I could get done, and hopefully avoid any rain.

The route I took heads up some hills and it's a little tough for the first mile or so. The wind was blowing that the temps were dropping but it was still pretty warm I think it dropped from 58 down to the high 40's. Feeling good through this run. At one point in mile 5 as I hopped up onto the sidewalk I had this sudden memory from when I first started running. I was near the end of a run and went to hop on the sidewalk, just like today, and almost fell on my face. I could barley lift my leg, and hopping was just not going to happen. Today I hopped up on the sidewalk and just kept running without even a hesitation. It felt good.

Today as I neared the end of my run my phone beeped a text, so I pulled it out to make sure it was not an emergency...this is what I saw....

Yes my dear son, who knows I'm out running wants to know...WHAT'S FOR DINNER!?!?!? I just laughed...needless to say when I got home I told him dinner was whatever he wanted to cook for himself.

And me? I got 6.2 miles done and that much closer to a cupcake! And today I'm feeling strong and ready for that 1/2 marathon.

Nice run! I get so mad when I hear my phone going off during long rides. I know it's my daughter and I know it's not going to be an emergency, and I know that if it is an emergency I'm in the middle of nowhere and will be of no help...but I always have stop and check it anyways.

I have a 6 miler on the schedule for tomorrow a.m. Hope mine goes as well as yours.

Nice run!!

I am the cook at my house, no one asks me that question anymore, because I always answered "Whatever I feel like cooking"

That is too funny about "What's For Dinner?" No one in the house asks me that question anymore either because they don't like what I am eating! Their loss!
