I was so proud of myself for actually hydrating properly last night, laying out my running clothes, and setting an alarm clock to make sure I did not sleep through my run. I fully intended to set out on my 6 mile run at 5:30 am. I wanted to be done running before the sun came up because right now the sun and I aren’t friends. At all.
I managed to get up as planned and started getting dressed. I had a cup of tea and checked my emails. Things were going well until…thunder and rain. No biggie. It rains all the time in Florida. It usually ends as quickly as it begins. Nope. Not this morning. It’s now 7:20 and has been raining for about 2 hours.
I don’t mind running in the rain. It’s actually preferable to heat. Around 6ish the rain slowed some so I headed out. Once I got up the street, I got thunder and lightning. Sigh. Back inside I went. I won’t run in lightning. Too dangerous. It seems like I made the right choice since the storm just got worse.
So, with that, I’ll be running this evening. Not my favorite time to run (I actually run WAY faster in the evening though). Meh…whatever. I’m more upset that I got up early and couldn’t go back to sleep after realizing I’d be rained out.
Since I was up early, I decided to get shit done. One of my favorite things to do. You’ll notice a new template and updated links (let me know if I missed anyone). I also updated my version of WordPress. I’ll try to take some pictures to rotate out in the header this weekend. I want to update the about me page and a couple of other things, too.
I still have about 30 minutes to kill so I’m going to load my dishwasher, clean my bathroom, make my bed (what???), and fold some laundry. All of this productivity is kind of awesome. Plus my house will be clean.
Any blogs that I should be reading? Do you want to be added to my links? If I missed you let me know.
