Holy crackerjacks. Our scale has been broken at the house. I fixed it last night. Wish I wouldn’t have. I have always been more concerned with my clothes fitting than weight. However…I weighed myself this morning (because you’re always skinniest in the morning right?!). I have put on seven pounds since Imogene. S-E-V-E-N. It is time for this chica to put down the fork. After Thanksgiving of course…
To that note, I took an eight mile loop yesterday after work. And how does a person run all the miles I run and still gain weight? Pure and simple talent my friends. I have the appetite of a gorilla. I out-eat my husband on a daily basis. He is twice my size BTW. I saw an “Overeaters Anonymous” flyer at the gym. I considered grabbing one of the tabs and calling someone. And this was before I weighed in. FML.
Back to the run. It was good. My pace was a solid :45-:50 seconds faster than my normal pace.
I ran the Landfill run- even picked up a trashbag full of leaves and moved it off the road. Kindness. Pass it on. Bahahaaha.
I tried to take a picture of the rain that was pouring down (It was I swear)… I was soaked by mile four.
Post race treat—eggnog. Accountable for at least one pound of this newfound fluff.
I registered to run the WinterSun 10k in Moab on December 3rd. It is one of my favorites, and even though as of now, I am going alone…I still hate to miss it. If you are a runner and live anywhere near Moab, UT, I highly recommend doing one of the MoabHalfMarathon races. The scenery is unbelievable. The town is quaint, and you can definitely make a weekend of the trip by visiting Arches National Park as well.
