IT’S NOT WHAT YOU THINK!


THE FEMALE BODY IS A BEAUTIFUL THING.

WEATHER: 45ish at running time, gradually warming to 53ish.

MILES: 33.5

MILES THIS WEEK: Who even knows?

WHERE TO: Great Falls and back.

MOOD: Perhaps less embarrassed than I should be.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

Today’s embarrassing-running-story is brought to you by…

  • The Great Falls Visitor Center
  • The C&O Towpath
  • Target running shorts
  • Stray tree branches
  • The phrase, “Read to the end before you yell, ‘GROSS!’ and pledge to never read my blog again.”
  • …because (as the title implies) IT’S NOT WHAT YOU THINK.

Braceface? What are you doing here?


WEATHER: 28 degrees at running time.

MILES: 10, intended to include a 2 x 15-min tempo run but which ended up being just a 10-mile medium-paced wander around Georgetown/Glover Park/Cleveland Park/etc.

MILES THIS WEEK: 30

MILES THIS MONTH: 45

MOOD: LET’SDOTHIS!

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

I did 10 miles even after a night of semi-quality sleep that involved dreams about being 14 again and dating my freshman-in-high-school boyfriend, who I shall hereinafter call Braces.  Braces was making macaroni and cheese and furthermore informed me that he was buying a parakeet and running off with The Worst Woman to Attend Our High School Ever (hereinafter TWWTAOHSE) (or perhaps just “Bitchtastic”).

Anyway.  It was stressful.

So I didn’t exactly “do” the “tempo” part of my run this morning.  In fact, I mainly just ran in a way that “felt good” and probably ended up “being on average as fast” as a “tempo” “run” might be, any”way.”  Is my hardassery slipping???

Meh.  I did 10 anyway.  And it was chilly.

Also, today’s question — why does the McDonald’s in Adams Morgan play booty music outside at like 6:30 AM?
