It pays to run ....

I had a rough night sleeping last night. I actually woke up yesterday with a neck crick. You know that pain in the neck you get when you can't look left or right? So all last night I felt that pain and it kept me up. Every time I turned around in bed I felt a sharp pain in my neck and upper back. I don't know what the hell caused it!! So I was up at 5:30 cause I couldn't sleep any more. I started doing neck and back stretches to help loosen up the crick pains. At about 6:30 I was loose enough and awake enough so decided to go for a run.

At about mile 2.5 I saw a light green object in the middle of brown leaves in a parking lot ahead of me. Low and behold, a nice crispy $10 bill!!

I'm rich biatch!!

I don't care how you cut it. Whether it's $5 dollars, a dollar or even a quarter, free money is good money!!! Hell yeah!

I finished the run with a good  5 miles behind me. I could have probably done more, but seeing that it was a really good run and my knee wasn't hurting, I figured I wouldn't push it. This week weather permitting, I plan on running Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday. I'm looking at a half marathon mid October. I have not committed to it yet, but if I can get a friend to do it with me, and maybe even carpool to it, I'll do it! I'll keep you posted.

ugh,... Not looking forward to this work week :( ... but at least I'm $10 ahead now :)

Ha, I found a 20-spot in a corn maze one time ... but never any running. Yeah, I get that same stupid pain about once or twice a year out of the blue. I always assume that I slept wrong on it or something, but it's a huge inconvenience. Sorry - hope it goes away soon

That's a couple post-run beers right there. Sweet!
