My Day...In Bullets

  • Got up at 4am
  • Got on the bus at 5am
  • Sat on the ground, at the top of a mountain, eating a PopTart and playing with a blue glowstick (the blue ones are the prettiest - don't argue)
  • Used the Porta-a-Potty at the starting line twice
  • Put my Ipod on "shuffle" - totally not normal for me - very out of character.  It was completely unorganized.
  • Started running at 6:15am
  • Left Knee told me he was angry at 6:16am
  • At Mile 15, I secretly wished that Jayson would appear.  He didn't.
  • At Mile 16, I finally discovered why my right shoe felt "sloshy".  Looked down to discover blood oozing out the top of my shoe.  What the fuhhhhh??
  • At Mile 20, I had to use the Porta-a-Potty again.  Not fun.  At all.
  • At Mile 23, Left Knee finally decided to cooperate.  Gee, thanks.  Good timing.
  • Just before the Finish Line, my kids joined me and crossed the line with me.  So cool!  They did that for me last year, too.
  • I sat on the grass, took off my shoes, and then got talked into having the Medics take off my sock
  • I missed April's finish because I was on the Medic table getting my toes irrigated and taped
  • Enjoyed the grass and shade for a bit before heading home
  • Had two kids bawling in the truck on I-15 because they missed their dad
  • Took Jaycob to Great Cuts to have them FIX what I did to his hair on Tuesday night with the kitchen scissors
  • Went to the store and bought 6 bags of chips.  They were Buy-One-Get-One-Free.  Stop judging.
  • Went to Dairy Queen and bought Blizzards for tonight.  Go ahead - you can judge that one.
  • Finally made it home and glued my ass to the couch
  • After spending 25 minutes arguing over who does the front and who does the back, the kids mowed the yard (I will take a picture from upstairs in the morning.  They did a great job.)
  • I took a 2 hour nap (one of my favorite parts of today).
  • The kids made me dinner, and it was delicious!
  • I finally took a shower at 7:30pm.  I don't care whether you judge that one or not.
  • And, now, I am half asleep, typing this post that doesn't really mean much, and eating my Strawberry Golden Oreo Blizzard.
  • And, later....the kids and I are having a slumber party

Happy Traks!!

P.S.  I will NOT be running tomorrow, in case you were wondering.

  1. You are a trooper Emily. That still doesn't sound fun to all. But maybe one day I'll catch the bug.

    That's a cute picture finishing with your kids. They are adorable.
