Side Note: This has nothing to do with running. I thought this was really weird and wanted to share. I am supposed to be watching our cows while my husband is gone because they are all calving right now. I go out twice a day and make sure none of them are down, count all the calves to make sure none are missing, and make record of any new ones. Yesterday I found this...
What the heck?!? All of our cows are black (Brangus). Where in the world did this white calf come from? We have raised Brangus cattle for 10 years and I've never seen this. I'm very confused.
The spring forward time change has always been a source of trouble for me, and this morning was no exception. I set the alarm on my phone for 6 a.m. so that I would have plenty of time to get dressed, have breakfast, enjoy some coffee, and meet Karen and Dave and some of their Woodlands group at the park for an 8 a.m. run. Long story short: the time didn't change on my phone, I got no breakfast, had little for dinner the night before, very little sleep, probably a little too much crown royal, and consequently a really bad run. I was dizzy, had a side stitch, and felt like I was going to puke. I made it around the 6.8 mile inner loop, Han's Course (Dave of course had a map), but it wasn't pretty. Thank goodness my fellow runners were gracious enough to share their rations (accelerade and sport beans) or else I very well may have died.
I felt horrible for holding them up when they had driven all the up from The Woodlands to run. I hope I get the chance to redeem myself. I promise guys, next time I will be fresh and nourished.
Now it's time to get ready for the big 2 o'clock 5K throw down between 7 Hills Running Club and The Woodlands Running Club. I hope my time is better that yesterday at RTW. I came in at 28:56. I can do better.
