Evening slacker...

I am a morning runner.
That's just how it is.
I do better and am much more likely to get my run DONE
when I schedule it in the morning.

Still, sometimes doing an evening run sounds nice.
I made plans with a friend to run tonight at 8:30, after kids were in bed.

Of course, that means I became crazy, ridiculously tired at 6:30pm.

At about 8:20pm, my friend and I starting texting regarding our run.
It went more or less like this:

Her:  I am freezing cold.
Me:  I know what you mean- and I feel unnaturally tired.
Her:  Me too!  I am exhausted, but I will go if you want to.
Me:  I don't want to- but I should.  Maybe I can go in the morning.
Her:  Well, what do you want to do?
Me:  I don't know.  If you really want to go,  I'll go.  Otherwise I'll go tomorrow.
Her:  Let's go tonight!
Me:  Ok.  I'm already dressed- may as well go.

What I was actually thinking was.
CRAP.
Dang motivated people making me run.

Monday Workout:
8 miles

Okay, so it turns out that I am NOW glad that I went ;).
Isn't that the way it always goes?
Who has ever regretted going for a run?

I am excited today because it's Cyber Monday...
which for us means we are getting a new camera.
Hopefully no more ridiculous phone camera pictures.
Except for the random kid-photography that must be shared.

I have had that exact conversation. I'm quite impressed you still managed to get yourself outside to run!

My girlfriend Terra and I have had that same conversation a gazillion times. It's always better to run than to not though!
