1/2 banana and a shot of adrenaline

Today started off like any other day.  I met my friends for a morning run at 5:45 a.m.  It’s still dark.  We run on a very popular road with lots of other runners.  We wear reflector vests and run towards traffic so we can jump out of the way when a car comes at you head on and doesn’t stop, slow down, or swerve to get out of the way!  3 of us were running together.  I was in the middle.  A car turned towards us and was either trying to kill us on purpose or was completely oblivious to us, because next thing I know, I’m staring at the hood of his car and jumping out of the way.  I thought for sure he was going to hit my friend on the outside.  She screamed and we survived the near miss as the car sped away.  After that we thought every car was going to hit us!  I was feeling great with my 1/2 banana and a dose of adrenaline.  We finished our 6 miles.  I’m anxious to be on the trails in the sun, away from speeding cars!

Take A Back RoadI’m feeling good with my eating and exercise regimen.  I’m 2 1/2 weeks in and my clothes feel looser everywhere.  I’m sore everywhere too.  I must be doing something right.  I have come up with a NEW reward too.  This is kind of a BIG one and I will forego many other purchases I’d like for my house for this one.  I want to take my two daughters to see Taylor Swift in June.  The concert is sold out and I’m going to have to pay a pretty penny for 3 tickets.  It’s worth it to me.  Pictures, tables, chairs, clothes…do not compare to the memories of sharing the night with my sweetest girls who LOVE Taylor Swift so much!!!!  I kind of do too (:  My little 4 year old gave me a compliment in the car today when we were singing along to one of her songs.  He said I sounded just like her voice!  What a cutie!  I think the ONLY thing I want more than the concert tickets is a water softener.  Other than that, I want nothing.  I want to surprise them with the tickets on my daughter’s birthday in May.  That will be the HARD part!!!

Me and my girls!
