I’m tired. I worked all day. Yet, I still want to get out there for a short run. Feeling it? Not really, but still want to? Yes. If only I had a body double. Let’s face it, sometimes a nap seems more the proper end or a work day. Maybe I can take a nap while my body double laces up and dons the Garmin for a quick jaunt around the hood. I certainly am trying to talk myself out of it right now. “You’re tired, it’s ok to skip a run”. “Turn on CNN, and put your feet up for a half hour”.
Oh man…. Now I am starting to really come up with excuses. Excuses are not what helped Meb win the Boston Marathon.
Speaking of Meb, and Boston. I had to work during the race this year. I completely missed all of it. Yeah, bummer, I know. I did however, record it on some strange sport channel I found about a week after the fact. Then I forgot I did, but remembered last night. So I watched Rita and Meb last night. I watched them intently. I watched the strides, the body mechanics. Just amazing!! It’s all I can say. Amazing! If only I looked an ounce like Meb when I run, surely I would have a new PR, or BQ in the bag.
Excuses did not win the Boston Marathon. Excuses will not get me a BQ either, but..I would like to request one thing…..
Meb, will you be my body double? I could use a nap right now and you could run for me.
