Musings, if you will

So, in the foggy light of 6:30am on Saturday, waking up ON PURPOSE to go walk 6 miles in the chilliness seems like kind of a jackass idea. I wanted the shirt. I already have the shirt. See what I am saying?

We "carb loaded" like big old freaks last night, which means we ate wheat pasta and Prego. We went to bed at 10pm on FRIDAY night, but I didn't fall asleep until midnight because I was stressed I might not be able to sleep and would thusly be too tired and crabby this morning. check.

Oh, and the best of all. Too much information for sure, but I started my period. Nothing says awesome fun like changing a tampon in a porta potty at the state park.

Catch ya in 6.2 miles!

ETA: My goal was to not be last...guess what? I was THIRD (to last). 1 hour 39 minutes. I am about to put IcyHot sleeves on my ankles, drink some water and take a nap, followed by a movie, then beer and wings.

Now that I am finished with it, the whole 10K seems like a fine idea. But man, my 6:30am self was kind of bitchy. First thing I said to Mr. P today, "So, SpeedRacer, who's idea was this anyway?"

It can never be easy, can it? Hope it goes well, and that your legs don't hurt too much tomorrow!

In your face lasty! (I hope you said that to the poor sucker who was last, were they old? One legged? wheel chair?)

um. NO. He was 7. No, I am kidding. It was two ladies, one probably my age, the other about 10 years older, and they just walked, whereas I walked AND jogged. And I didn't just barely beat them...I beat them by 20 minutes so there.

Wow. We've been blog friends long enough now that we've gotten on the same schedule, if you know what I mean.

Congrats on finishing your 10K!

A 10K kills. Walking, running, whatever. It kills. But HOORAY WOOT WOOT YAHOO YAYEE for you! You rocked it, sister. Now get drunk. In your new t-shirt of course!
And why do the races have to be so freakin' early in the morning? It's not like it's going to be hot anytime soon- it's winter! Dang morning people!
