A Mosquito Before the Storm

Like a mosquito before the storm...I was drawn to the road tonight.  All afternoon I have been hearing that the storm is coming, the storm is coming.  Well as of right now it has still not made it to us!

After a long day driving to Hartford, CT and back to pick up some materials for work I was exhausted.  So I did what I do best when I am worn out...I took a nap.  I woke up at 7:15 thinking well I guess I missed my chance to run tonight.  Around 7:45 my husband came home from his bike ride and I decided - why not?  Prest-o change-o and I was out for a run with my safety vest on.

I wore my white Princess Half shirt from 2011, my extra large Princess Half shirt.  I am proud to say that between 2011's race and 2012's I went from an XL to a M!  The baggy shirt was good for the hot night run this evening though.  It was another one of the full on sweat fests.  At first I thought I was going to have a decent breeze because of the income storm, but then it went dead calm.  In the end I went 6.5 miles and was so glad that I had gone out!

When was your last run that wasn't going to happen, but did in the end?  Next time you think about not going out, do it anyway!  You will feel twice as glad that you did!


  1. Awesome! Yesterday was kind of one of those runs. I planned on running 7 on a trail, got a late start so I did half of it. I felt like a million bucks!

  2. Great job getting out there and getting it done. Don't throw in the towel, being flexible is the key to running success! In the end you are always going to feel better if you do something. The benefits usually outweigh the drawbacks. So go for it and be glad that you did! Great example Beth!
