guess what.......?!?

this attractive outfit can only mean one thing...


i ran!!!

but not like this

josh wouldn't even come with me because he was embarrassed of my "new" nike capris (purchased in december, never worn due to lack of exercise).

unlike the last time i "ran" (a whopping half-mile in january), i didn't over think it before hand. in fact, i forgot to warm up and just took off (well, relatively speaking). i set off on a 2.5-mile loop and decided to do a 1-mile "time trial" and run/walk the rest of the way (2 minutes run/3 minutes walk). the 1-mile time trial was hard. then again, i haven't ran a full mile since october so it was to be expected.

by the numbers:
0 - horn honks at my hot pink pants
2.5 - miles run/walked total
10:29 - mile time trial
30:33 - total time to complete 2.5 miles
infinite - people rubber necking at my hot pink pants

ps: still sugar-free. i didn't give in on national m&m day. as much as i wanted to, i also didn't want to break my streak.

pps: i'm still not better. i'm just medicated. but, it enables me to run. and function in life in general.

    1. I tensed up a few times expecting to be honked at, but I was glad no one did. Honks make me jump!

    2. I was going to say the same thing about no honks... but I'm right there with you, honks make me jump! (Those pants are amazing!) Glad you got out there for a run!

  2. If meds are allowing you to run - and life function - then bring them on!!! This post is going to make my whole day. Probably week!

    Hope you were able to walk okay today :).

    1. That's what I think! Obnoxious running clothes are safer - more visibility... Right?
