Busy, busy, busy...

I got up, got the kids ready for school, took them to school, came home, started cleaning, picked up B from school, came back home, made lunch, cleaned some more...then cleaned some more...and then some more, then C came home, and I cleaned some more. I cleaned and cleaned... Hey, have I told you that I cleaned? Yeah, I cleaned. I cleaned the whole freakin' house. I cleaned it from 9:30 am until 6:30 pm. Then I prayed and prayed that the kids wouldn't undo everything that I did. All the while I kept hearing "You've got 7 miles to run...You've got 7 miles to run..."

So, after dinner and after laying 2 of the 3 kiddos down, I handed off little A to Gma T and went for a little run before the sun went down. Have you noticed that there's a difference between the darkness at night and the darkness in the morning? When it gets dark at night it freaks me out and I don't like running. There's a buncha weirdos out at night. I figure all the psychos are asleep at 5 in the morning so I don't mind running then at all.

Anyway, I got 4.60 miles done before it got too dark. So, I'll switch today's run and tomorrow's run, no big deal.

How was your day today?

That's funny what you said about the psycho's. Michelle and I ran today and we were saying that all the criminals are out all night and asleep by then, but it's the criminal masterminds that come out early... not to freak you out or anything like we did to ourselves lol.

I hate running in the big cities and the open country at night. In smaller towns, though, night-running doesn't bother me at all.

No matter what time of day or night it is, though, there may also be a wierdo; the definition of wierd just changes with the time.

I run early mornings and on country roads. I was not raised in the country so country roads make me nervous! I always try to tell myself the crazy people are asleep at that hour too :).

I do run with a partner though - I guess we are safe in numbers right? A dog ran out in front of us today and my running partner grabbed my arm (honestly I was just as scared as her)! :)

Happy running!
