dum dum dummmm (doom music)
perhaps i should have taken this dead deer in mile 1 as a sign.
although the winds were whipping (20-38mph), i felt good and pushed the pace a little. i didn't even glance at garmin and just ran hard. since i was running with my phone (a precautionary when i'm runmuting) i decided to play some music for a change. i don't have headphones so i just turned up the volume as loud as it would go, although it was still a little hard to hear the music over the traffic.
too bad i didn't have one of these
i listened to hits by the black eyed peas, justin bieber (scream!), rihanna, lil wayne... you know, classics. it was a nice change though (i don't ever run with music) and i'm sure the beat helped me dance through the miles a little faster.
i arrived at home and of course, josh wasn't there. his dumb meeting lasted two+ hours, leaving me stranded on the front porch for over an hour. i was warm and sweaty at first, so i hung my shirt from the flag pole as i continued my dance party with flo rida, dj khaled, lady gaga, etc on the front porch. someone shot off fireworks a few houses down, either celebrating today's big holiday or approving of my white girl dance skills.
it's not easy trying to photograph yourself dancing
george, abe and thomas j were rolling over in their graves
it started getting chilly so i put my shirt back on, much to the dismay of the neighbors. they quit shooting off the fireworks. eventually josh came home from work and rescued me (and called me special).
