today i runched (noun - a light midday run between morning and evening; verb - to run during lunch).
ten minutes into my run, i started getting the shakes. i had eaten some (dry) cereal and homemade yogurt for breakfast around 9, so i don't understand where they come from (it's happened before).
i told myself that i had plenty of food stores/fuel in my love handles, and it sure wouldn't hurt to burn some of that. i did just devour a box of godiva chocolate hearts yesterday. it was a pretty good exercise in mental-toughness as i pushed through "the shakes".
for a second i was tempted to 'eat' some of the dirty snow from the side of the road. the shakes feeling eventually went away so i know it wasn't anything serious - just my stomach freaking out that i wasn't going to feed it every 5 seconds anymore.
after i (sorta) showered off i noticed my face was attractively flushed. i looked like a hot mess. hopefully this is somewhat normal.
