No longer concerned with the public affirmation of friendship –

She only wanted those late night conversations back. She wanted the honest, open two-way banter, the endless feeling of being important

Dot to Dot

Sunday, I ran the 2nd leg of three 10k in the Heartland 30k. 74 minutes well spent. This coming Sunday is the final run in the series. If I can get over the mental barriers, I know I’ll do well. 

I am, however in 397th place out of 595 running the series. I’m kind of, soft of okay with that.

the situation was complicated

more than the others

it was strictly on an as needed basis

on his command

no sidebar conversations in between

no unnecessary banter exchanged

it was unreal how things were kept

he was the decider

he made the rules, the appointments

told me where to be, when —

what to wear and he dictated everything

that happened

i was a slave to his requests

Plaza10k today was the first 10k in a series of three. It begins the Heartland 30k. I ran this last year in 63 minutes. Today – 73 minutes. In my subconscious I’m okay with this. In my heart and mind, I know I’m better. No excuses. I just need to do better next week at my next 10k. 

Difficult night sleeping. I was anxious like a kid on Christmas Eve. But more so, I thought of my dad. For two reasons. 1. He’s the biggest New England Patriots fan ever known. This is the first game without my dad. To hear him curse at the officials, yell at poor play-calling, and refuse to ever watch again. I miss my dad every day, minute. I’d always call when I finished a race. He’d say, “Great job, honey. You did great. That’s an awful long run for someone who’s not crazy.”  I love him and really had to concentrate to not think too much during my run. 

Enjoy the pictures of this weeks challenge. Next week, another 10k. And hopefully with a better time!

My evening walk earlier this week produced deep thoughts and captured a beautiful sky.

It might be a long day if . . . 

You wake at 4:16am to walk the dog and it starts pouring rain on top of your sleepy head.  Like – a lot!

OR

While making your first cup of wake me up, you forget the K cup and get 10oz of hot water instead of coffee!

It’s going to be an awesome day!

Lots of work in the next two weeks to get ready. Who’s going to motivate me? Who’s pushing me to terry harder today than yesterday? ME!

He rounded the corner that night – towel wrapped around his strong, alluring physique. His frame complimenting mine.

When I look at him now, that’s all I see. Him – half naked – that towel which landed perfectly at his feet
