Keep it Simple Thursday.

Blind Run...I waited for the thunderstorms to stop. I love Thunderstorms so I did not mind waiting. I sat outside on the porch reading and enjoying the rain. I was actually having a hard time talking myself into running all together this morning. My body is tired and sore, the weather puts a little extra hurten on me.
But then I got this little burst of energy and motivation, and that mixed with the rain letting up set up the window of opportunity to run. I decide to take the Garmin but NOT look at it! Not looking at my watch took the most discipline but it was forgotten in deep thoughts...
"Thinking is the greatest torture in the world for most people." Voltaire
I had some things that were roomanating in my head. Stinking Thinking. And rather than disposing of it like I knew I should..I fed it. I fed it so much that I forgot to pick up my Amphipod water container. At mile 3 I dropped my container in the grass, planning to pick it up on my way back in. I mean it was 80 degrees and humid I was going to get thirsty.
Too bad I ran right past it never to take a drink totally forgetting it.  I got so engrossed in my thoughts that when I arrived downtown Holly I couldn't even remember how I got there. I have to conquer a very large hill to get to the place I was at and I did not even recall the gruesome crawl up it. I was so withdrawn from my run that I couldn't even bring to mind the last 3 miles!
Happy Birthday Austin Dow!!

At 3:38pm, 13 years ago I gave birth to a 8 lb 2 ounce beautiful baby boy, Austin Dow. His skin was olive and his hair was dark and silky. He was perfect. I had 11 people in the room!! Andy's mom was my coach she was amazing. I have never looked at someones eyes that long in my life. She never left my side telling me to focus on her. I had terrible back labor and refused to get an epidural. She was like an angel. Between mom coaching me and Aunt Lois rubbing my back I was able to maintain my sanity. Everything was perfect..He Was Perfect.

There are some days I practice positive thinking and other days I'm not positive I am thinking and then days like today I think I shouldn't have been thinking soo hard...Or at all!

I was shocked at my pace because I was taking it easy. Great RUN
