Will Run for Cupcakes

Endulged in a breakfast with BACON! I am afraid I have lost some weight. So I am intentionally trying to eat more calories.

Another night I couldn't sleep. I tried everything. I prayed and  I daydreamed. I tried the social media route, I went on FB, twitter and my Instagram.   I even tried my favorite, playing games. No one wanted to play me on Trivia Crack or Words with friends, probably because they are bored from beating me all the time. The last time I saw the clock it was already 3am.

It was like a dream come true, the beautiful blue sky and warm temperatures. I wanted to run in the heat of the day.
I put on SHORTS, a TANK and my ING NYC arm warmers. Oh YEAH!! I had to put my sunglasses on though, I wasn't sure what was glowing more, my Casper white legs or the SUN!

I had a Cross Country coaching meeting at the school at 3:40. I didn't have enough time to change so I headed up to the school a muddy smelly mess. I didn't even have time to hit myself up with body spray. Nasty. I hoped that my Eucalyptus Spearmint body lotion was still working. I did however have the barn painted (make-up on). Mom always says "Every old barn looks better with a little red paint!"

I got home about 5pm. "Alec, LETS GO!!"
Alec was going to try out those new CC shoes. I came home to Alec being a emotional hot mess.
"Good Grief" I thought.
Somehow I convinced him to lace up his shoes and go.
He didn't put his new Mizunos on, he squeezed his big old flat foot in last seasons shoes because he didn't want to get his shoes dirty.

It was a good thing he did that. We were a muddy, scratched up, soaked mess and only ran 2 miles.
ADVENTURE time. I love running with Alec. He was ahead of me on the dirt road, but his position didn't last long. Alec got struck with a devilish side stitch that  put the ugly face on him.
Adventure Time.

I couldn't stop laughing at him as he contorted his face and rolled his shoulders forward.
"Breath Alec, get you shoulders up."

Alec took me though the woods, into mud puddles, 3 feet of snow banks and picker bushes. I had no idea where I was going but it sure was fun. My shoes were drenched with snow and dirt. My bare legs were beat up but again, it sure was fun.

Distance 6 miles Solo, 2 miles with Alec. 8 Miles TOTAL

Danielle and I have been texting all afternoon. I am in slight panic. I didn't realize tomorrow is 17 miles. My stomach did a bit of a flip, I think it is still inside out or upside down.
Danielle, Lacey and I  are heading to Indian Springs in the morning. It is going to be 46' and SUNNY!!
I have great company, great weather and I am going into 17 miles with positivity.

I could REALLY USE some SLEEP though!

I am drinking my water, doubling up on my Juice Plus and charging the Garmin.
I am starving, I am going to finish off the Popcorn Lacey turned me unto to, then top the night off with my favorite, Breyers Mint Chocolate chip Ice cream.

What will you RUN FOR?
Alec made a pit stop at Maw Maws to get this!!
