Remember that book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day? Well today, I might as well have been Alexander.
For reasons I don’t care to discuss on the blog, it was a bad day that only got worse as the hours ticked by. I think I managed to piss off six or seven people in a span of four hours. That’s got to be a record. I wouldn’t want to be friends with me either with this kind of attitude. I’m emotionally, mentally and physically drained.
Oh, did I mention I’m running a half marathon in the morning? I’m not properly hydrated, fueled or mentally prepared to run this race. If I even make it to the start, it will be a miracle. Part of me wants to cancel all together and sleep the day away. But maybe a challenging run is exactly what I need to get over this weekend. I could use the boost of endorphins.
I don’t know if I have everything. What am I missing?
I get my timing chip and bib in the morning and my camera and Ipod are still charging.
At least I remembered my Fuel Belt bottles this time.
Wish me luck (I think I’m gonna need it).
Oh no! I hate that you had a bad day! Hopefully things will be better!
Everyone is entitled to bad days, including you. You’re not a quitter!! Run the race today, and kick butt. I know you can do it! Make Irving give you a back massage later. Then eat a piece of fudge. Fudge solves everything. I hope your weekend gets better, and if you ever want to rant, call me anytime. 🙂 Love you, and good luck.
Awe thanks. I didn’t even think about that, but you’re right. Feeling human is exactly what I need. That fantastic, humbling gratitude. Thank you.
This run is EXACTLY what we need when we’re in this state. You will be fun and feel better. You will thank volunteers and feel human again- running id the most human thing we do. GO KELLEY!!!!!
