I took the day off from work
A day off for me means that, even though I wake up at 6:30 AM, I try to close my eyes and go back to sleep. Usually, I end up giving up the thought of sleeping in around 7:30.
I started my breakfast, which was my typical oatmeal:
- 1/2 cup dry oatmeal
- 1 tbs of (local) honey
- 3 tsp of brown sugar
- Cinnamon to taste
I turned on my favorite radio station via Spotify, which is currently based on this playlist I call CHILL – click it to take a peak. Listening to this led to….
More than a year after moving out of my home and away from my children, I’m still often overwhelmed with great sorrow. But this was short-lived, because….
This weekend I have my boys
So I needed to go to the store and fill my house with snacks and food stuffs galore.
After about 90 minutes of parading through 2 stores, it was approaching the hottest part of the day (a sunny 58°F). I gobbled up a banana, put my groceries away, and headed out for a run.
I decided to drive down the road to run a route I normally bike.
I was planning a 5 mile run, which is borderline I need to carry water, but because of the cool temperatures, I did NOT bring water with me. I did not feel fast today, but I felt steady and felt good, so I just went with it. 2.5 miles into it I wasn’t even beginning to feel fatigued, so decided I’d push for 10 – my only second thought was that I wished I would’ve carried some water.
The gods, they mock me
4.5 miles into my run there was a beverage truck, stopped in the middle of a residential street (doors open) delivering bottled water to a house…
The delivery man walked right in front of me carrying a 24 pack of water. Once I reached my midway point, I turned around and tried to pick up the pace a bit; take a look at these splits:

After my run I had this sandwich – Yum!!

This evening there was a flurry of activities – my six had a birthday party to go to, we had dinner, and we decorated the tree at dad’s place.
