I am one of the best procrastinators around... especially when it comes to packing. I very much dislike packing!!!

Tonight I did my long run since I'm going to be out of town for the weekend. I'm doing the Crim next weekend (10 mile race), so I did a nice easy 11 1/2 miler tonight. I was planning on doing 12, but it was getting too dark and I didn't feel comfortable being out there alone. It was a great run and I felt as if I could have kept going. What a wonderful feeling! Splits were as follows:

Mile 1 - 9:21
Mile 2 - 9:15
Mile 3 - 9:24
Mile 4 - 9:26
Mile 5- 7 - 26:48
Mile 8 - 9:02
Mile 9 - 8:34
Mile 10 - 8:56
Mile 11 - 8:56
Mile 11 1/2 - 4:30

As you see, I got a little crazy during mile 9. I think Ice Cube's, "Put Your Ass Into It" came on during this mile. I LOVE that song!!! Yay for ghetto booty music!!! :)

On a non-running note, things with the boy are going well. I'm working to be more flexible with my schedule, but holding firm to not seeing him too frequently. I told him (again) I enjoy my independence and that I refuse to just go ahead and drop my life. He assured me he understood and wouldn't want to be with someone that did. So, I guess I'll just have fun and see what happens.

Well, I better get packing... uggh.

I'm not sure how I stumbled onto your site, but I am glad I did. I am also a runner who got sidelined because of a painful injury, which I am still dealing with four months later.

Here's to the hope that one day we will be running pain free (except for the running pains, I think we runners enjoy those, as reminders of accomplishment.)
