This was from my run last night. Saturday’s evenings 5.5 mile run/walk was well, a little disappointing. I argued with my worst enemy nearly the entire time. I had forgotten. Yes I forgot my half marathon was on Sunday and what do I do? I go running right where part of the course is. Let’s just say, seeing the preparation for the race was not a confidence booster. Nonetheless I wiped a few tears away and went back to arguing. My worst enemy was insisting it was too hot outside. I was too tired. I was too sore. Let’s take a shortcut. You name it; my worst enemy had a tempting excuse and rationale to stop and go home. Which I did, but only after I was done. I didn’t take a shortcut. And I certainly didn’t take any of the bull**** to heart. Because guess what? It is all bull****. My worst enemy is my worst enemy for a reason. And I am certainly not going to listen to her and stop when I know a zillion reasons why I should keep going.
Last night I went out again. I expected things to go better since usually my bad runs are few and far between. But things didn’t go better. No. My worst enemy showed up again. Of course we started arguing right away. And then I got angry. Are you f-ing kidding me? I needed to get in the zone. I mean completely in the zone and run. The zone is my escape. My sanity. My solace. And more. I wanted more. But with every last bit of my boss self I worked hard and I argued with my worst enemy for another 5.5 miles.
I saw the heart above when I was nearly done. For me it represents not giving up. 11 miles worth of not giving up and winning the argument against my worst enemy. Because you see, my worst enemy is my worst enemy for a reason. I know better than to listen to her bull****. Most of the time. And I am certainly not going to stop when I know a zillion reasons why I should keep going.
I am heading out again for a run in a few. Yes. A run. I feel like I can say that now that I am doing more running than walking these days. I am hoping it will go better than the last two. But if it go better? No matter. I will go right back out there and try again tomorrow.
Then it will be time for dinner. Homemade enchiladas, Princess is coming over to eat with us. Then, its back to studying and seeing what you pretty awesome people have been up too.
Have you ever gotten angry with your worst enemy?
What’s for dinner?
Have you found a heart yet? I love seeing them in my inbox and I cannot wait to share!
Until next time, always be true to yourself and think like a boss!
