The Rundown today went kinda like this:Got up easy.
Katie left me a message she was not going to make it running this morning. With that information I let Danielle know and she asked if I would like to go some where different. I quickly replied back "YES!"
.We decided that Kensington Metropark would be a great place to meet. I had not trained there once this year. It is pretty hilly and challenging but a awesome place to train. Many bikers and runners go out there.
But the scenery was so glorious I was mesmerized by the beauty, the greenery and the lake that we ran around. And my company was top notch. Danielle has the best smile. When she smiles she has the brightest eyes and genuineness that would make anyone feel accepted and loved by her.
We had a great run till we get back towards the car and Danielle says "Anita, I think you got a ticket." I laughed. Yup, I sure did, sitting on my windshield. Actually I am long overdue. I have been going to Indian springs now for 8 months with out a sticker. And my ticket was only 5$.
I said my goodbyes and headed into my truck. I was going to head to the office and get a year pass. As I was leaving the parking lot I was thinking "Wow, I made it here so good, I hope I do not get lost going home." I was so proud of myself for not getting lost. As I headed out I noticed my car was acting up..I KNEW THAT sound..the sound of lumpy bumpy jarring vehicle...YUP..FLAT TIRE!!
Danielle got the directions out and went to town..I found a Metro park Police officer and asked for assistance!
I tried to look like I knew what I was doing or that I was even a good assistant but Danielle was doing all the work until the "Maintenance men showed up!
It was such a good day. Very Very busy but very productive.
I came home Cranked up the radio. I danced to a little Adele and cleaned house! I was a cleaning dancing machine. Music is so fun and motivating.
I actually ran TWICE! I am helping out with my sons CC team and ran with the kids a couple miles. They are so fun. I love it. I try to remember I am not a 13 year old kid. I am Old, Breakable, and I do not recover the way they do. So I run with caution and disciple.
Sometimes change is not always good!
But that "Change" was nothing as good as my changing locations today with Danielle for our 8 mile run. Even though I was having some unfortunate circumstances I was at the point that it was almost just plain comical. Like a sitcom. Right down to the two guys helping me.
They asked me to follow them after putting my spare on to put air in it. I asked for their picture. The one guys says "You don't know, we could be wanted..." I replied. "And you never know..I could be wanted also!!!"
