|Seriously, WHAT is up with this picture and/or sport??? |
It was too bizarre to not share...
So yesterday morning, I had my last interview with "the" company. Only I realized as I was leaving that I was running late. Very late...as in, I'd have to hoof it to get there on time.
I should probably say here that I wanted to feel confident in my looks during this interview...and even though it was cold, I was prepared to forgo some "warm" items so that I would feel cute and confident. That meant no hat, no bulky long underwear, and (I know I'm going to hear about this) no coat. I didn't have one that would look cute over a suit...so I just didn't wear one.
It wouldn't have been so bad except for the fact that the front door to our building is almost two blocks away from the door to get into the parking garage.
So I did what any non-sane person would do in this situation. I ran to my the parking garage.
And okay, I know what you're going to say. You ran two blocks? Whoop-dee-do.
The thing is, I ran two blocks in -15 degrees and when I arrived at the door, I was completely fine. No burning chest; no hacking cough. Just frozen nostrils. And hey - I wasn't freezing cold by the time I got to the door - win win!
I think I've been afraid to run - probably because my last run before my surgery was kind of traumatic. But all this 30 Day Shredding has put me in better shape than I thought.
Such good shape that I'm starting to have my confidence back for running...such that I plan on running at least once in the next week. I know it may not sound like lofty goals, but I suspect that if I run and don't die on the treadmill that I'll continue to be back up and running in no time.
It feels good to feel more like ME these days. Healthy, competent, confident me.
