I took off with Sheba while Andy was stretching to get 2 miles in. I felt good. For my birthday Andy had bought me a new Mizuno Running shirt. He said that all I had to wear was this shirt and a light jacket and I would be plenty warm. Not believing him I grabbed my vest to add to the couple layers.
Sure enough at mile 1 I was already toasty. The new Technology is supposed to absorb your sweat without you feeling wet. It actually warms up! I ditched my vest when I arrived home to pick up Andy and drop off Sheba.
I let Andy lead the way towards 7 miles. We were having a great run till about 5 miles when my stomach started squirming. "Oh Crap"...Moms re-fried beans...
Last night mom had us over for my birthday and made us dinner..Mexican.
I thought I would be ok...so I kept running. Then "OH CRAP"...I got suddenly hot. I yelled "ANDYY, I need a bathroom quick."
Andy responded "What, Are you kidding me? What is wrong with you, EWE!"
"Oh Shut UPP, I need a bathroom, NOW!"
This is not normal for me. I know this is for some people. I even had a running partner that "this" happened to often, BUT NOT ME!
I quickly assessed my location trying to find the quickest route to a restroom. The Donut shop. We headed the half a block in that direction. Almost in the parking lot we realized they had already closed. We turned around and Andy says through his laughter "The grocery store!". I am running and stopping. I can not believe this is happening. Andy can not believe I am going into the grocery store to ask for a restroom. "No, we do not have Public bathrooms" was the response.
"Oh CRAP" I am panicking. I am sweating and trying not to freak out. I can hardly think where my next stop is. Andy answers quick, still laughing, "The Gas station". Another block away..I think I can..I think I can...
As we approach the Gas station Andy says, "Are you seriously going to go in there and ask for the bathroom?" "YES!!" I respond. I am beyond being embarrassed. I will be more embarrassed if something else was to happen....
GOOD Times...Running stories..Back to smiling as we safely headed home that last mile.
