I'm a single Mom.  I work all night as a Paramedic and chase my two daughters all day so I don't sleep.  I miss when I could just go out and run every day. It will happen again.  I'm retiring at 50 with my public service pension.  11 more years and Mama is gonna rest.

Total Distance

Got up, laid on the couch, let Vanessa watch television, and fed her a chocolate doughnut.  Then we drove and parked at my moms and went on a stroller run for 5.15 mile at a leisurely 8:59 pace.  Went back to mom's, drank some coffee, then went with mom with the stroller again for 1.65 miles at 13:39 pace. I wore different socks and didn't get blisters from the crocs.  They felt great.  Then I hurried and showered and went to the nurse's meeting and now I'm frustrated and burnt out and have a crammed full day tomorrow and don't feel like cooking or cleaning the house.  I want a break. Crap.  I have to catch up on paperwork before getting more behind but I am seriously shut down and am not going to do anything right now.  It's one of those days.

pm:  after I laid on the couch for an hour and prayed a little I realized what a blessed life I have and am grateful to have.  I got up, ate dinner, and spent time with my family.  After the kids were in bed I went for a quick jaunt in town and saw another runner ahead in the dark, so of course I sped up.  Well, he was really hoofing it and I never caught him but dropped two fast miles 7:04 and 6:54 in the process before giving up.  The crocs did pretty good at race pace.  Slowed down and finished.  I feel better now.  7:41 AP
