Remember when I said ‘I don’t do treadmills’ in this post? Well, the Tampa Bay area has been dealing with this the past 2 days:
Yesterday morning I headed out for a run, unaware of the inclement weather. I got maybe a 1/2 mile from the house and saw the lightning. I’ll run in the rain but lightning is a game ender. By the time I got home I had only gone 0.8 miles and on the schedule for the day was 4 miles. No biggie, I thought, I’d just finish the run after work. I did pack a gym bag *just in case* and it was a good thing because it was still storming when I got off work.

I settled for Diet since I’m training for a Marathon. 😉 I very rarely drink soda but when I do it’s always Dr. Pepper!
Happy Hump Day!! 😀
