It Happens….so sue me!

It Happens….so sue me!

Work took me to Baltimore for two days.  I go down on the train with some colleagues.  It’s not a bad trip all in all.  Some local ladies showed me the jogging path around the Harbor area, so I managed to get my run in.  It was a run/walk truly.  Not my best.   But Whatever!

I NEVER do well when I am on unfamiliar turf.  The simple “not knowing where I am going” feeling takes over — and the love of the run disappears underfoot.  It’s weird how that happens.

On the train ride home last night, I started feeling very unwell.  Feverish, stuffed up, sneezing, achy.  Ugh.  I took some NyQuil (the nectar of the gods for the sick) and went to bed.  Sleep was sound.  Hell I was in a NyQuil stupor!  But I woke up feeling much the same.

I skipped my run today.  yikes.  It’s been worrying me all day.  I have to learn to let it go.  “Have Short Term Memory Diane”, says Marathon Brian.

So I’m resting today.  Even though the calendar says 5 miles.  My body took a rest day.

It happens….so sue me!

Ciao for now….Diane

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
