mud.

So the little tracker on my nano does not give me my distance, only how many steps I took. I guess I will have to map out my route to get the distance and stick to it when I go.

It rained on Friday and though our road is paved there are a lot of roads in my neighborhood that are dirt. As I said in one of my first posts, I prefer to run on the dirt so I stay on those roads. Well, dirt & rain makes mud, shocking, right? I was really fine with it because the mud puddles were not so big that I could not jog right around them. It was a very quiet afternoon around here & I only saw 2-3 cars while I was out. What are the odds that one of those few cars happened to pass at the exact time I was jogging by the largest of mud puddles and not have the courtesy to go slowly or even wait for me to pass? The odds are pretty good, apparently. 5 minutes in and I was soaked. And dirty.

I COULD have gone straight home & made the excuse that I was cold in the 50 degree air. It would have been easy…justifiable even. But I kept on, pulled up my [now wet & cold] big girl panties & stayed out for 25 minutes! Day 2 success! My calves & ankles feel fine today too!

Q: SO…Am I a runner NOW???

A: Again, not even close. (but slightly closer than before)
