8 - Number of miles managed today for my run.
3- Immodium needed to make that run possible.
1 - Number of stops I still needed to make halfway through. Dang generic brand.
2 - Friends I got to run with.
17 - Times I regretted running on the treadmill so much. Running outside is a billion times better.
19 & 30 - Ages of my running partners. How awesome is it that a college student, a stay at home mom and little ole me can all have so much in common? Running!
16 - Miles we are planning to run on Sunday morning.
5 - Time I will have to wake up on Sunday morning for said run.
1 - Sushi date planned during the run.
11 - How happy I was, on a scale of 1-10, to have hubby make me an awesome dinner tonight. Thanks!
I would add up all those number and do something cool with it but I'm fresh out of ideas. You can have this random photo outtake gem instead of thought provoking content today:
Oh, man. Outtakes are fun. You're welcome.
I wanted to ask those who are planning on being in Atlanta for the Publix Georgia Marathon on March 18th if they have any suggestions for meetups. If anyone is interested, I'll be staying at the (stalkers please stop reading now!) Days Inn in Downtown Atlanta. It's the cheapest place I could find that's still less than a half mile from the start AND from the expo.
If someone wants to volunteer to help me put iron bars on the window that would be awesome. Turns out that $60 for a Saturday night in downtown Atlanta doesn't guarantee safety. Weird.
I was kind of thinking anyone who was interested could get lunch or dinner close to the expo the day before the race (so the 17th - St. Patty's Day!). Anyone have any input? I think it's best if we go somewhere walkable in the area, as I know a few people will be visiting without cars.
By the way, if you feel like joining in but aren't running the race, still let me know! I'm excited to meet some Atlanta peeps too. I promise not to wear all green and embarrass you. Probably.
How would you plan the ultimate running blogger meetup? Stereotypes encouraged.
First we would all run 7 miles at a "fun" pace while proclaiming how awesome running is. Next up, salads covered in 24 different ingredients. Fiber! Then eat back all the saved calories by consuming giant frozen yogurts, taking closeup portraits of each topping. I promise I'm not making fun of anyone here. That genuinely sounds like an awesome day to me.
Have you met any people through running you might not otherwise be friends with?
Most definitely. Just recently I've been meeting tons of runners in my area who I'm sure I would have nothing in common with otherwise - especially moms. Nothing against moms, but generally those with young children I don't have a TON in common with. But running is the common bond and I love it.
