degrees this AM here in philly. what the heck am i doing up at 6:48 in the morning??? well, the plan was to go for a long run. a winter storm watch is in effect until 10:30am. i think i’m going to get dressed for a run and see if it’s do-able. i have to say that although i froze my hiney (so highschool!)doing the grocery shopping yesterday and walking home from the grocery store, i am definitely glad i did it. the mad rush for milk, bread, and any/all foods high in fat and sugar will be in effect. there’ll be lots of bad dumb driving and long lines at the check-out counter. a man’s gotta have his chips in this sort of weather… priorities damn it!
i’ve got an eye exam scheduled for today too! i have to go. these contacts are ruining my work day. (i confess to wearing contacts that are in extremely poor condition and i’m way overdue for an exam…bad and dumb me). anyhow, i am looking forward to actually being able to see better all of the time!
okay, it’s almost 7. time to get dressed and look like a crazed fitness person. it’s funny because i get the thumbs up from old men and suspicious looks from women. one guy laughed when he saw me coming and said “this young lady is ambitious”. you bet! half of the time it’s really tough to get out there, but once i do, it feels great and i feel great when i get done, get home to stretch and make breakfast (on weekends) or dinner (weekdays).
the body is a temple. respect it, treat it well. and it’ll return the favor.
sure, i may eventually become the neighborhood oldlady with cats, but i’ll have damned great legs and the ability to crack someone in the head with my cane without breaking my arm…
