Terrific Tuesday

Yesterday I was TIRED...TUCKERED...TRASHED....hmmm could I possibly write this whole post using just "T" words?? I think not. I was in a MOOD and did not want to run. It is a Rare day when I don't feel like running. Thankfully I worked from home, the weather was nice and I had no GOOD REASON no to run..

Generally I am on the HUNT, intense and focused. Yesterday my Garmin was not charged (paperweight mode AGAIN), so I ran watch less and at a comfortable pace. It was the closest to smiley Zen running that I get..
My work-lunch-running-buddy Shelby left this on my desk. I know nothing about the "Human Race" but I intend to find out!! Thanks Shelbs.. I LOVE LOVE thoughtful people who think of others..
Speaking of wonderful people. Lacey sent me the card and magnet above. How SWEET is that? Lacey will be running her FIRST Marathon this weekend.. and ran a 10K to pace her sister yesterday. So stop on over and leave her some Bloggy love!

This morning I was in TERRIBLE, TREACHEROUS, TUMULTUOUS, TRAFFIC...but I told myself that I have no reason not to make this a TERRIFIC TUESDAY!!!

Wishing you a TERRIFIC TUESDAY as well...

The official Nike Human Race is being held in New York, I think, but people can "race" anywhere providing they have the Nike+ system. Some running stores are holding smaller races in conjunction with the big "Human Race". There's one in KC this year, so I signed up for the "Human Race", simply because I get a free shirt for running a 10k. No entry fee, free t-shirt, sign me up.

Last year Nike held about a dozen major "Human Race" events around the world all on the same day. They called it "the day the world ran." It looks like they've significantly scaled back their marketing this year, and are keeping it within the US.

YAY for Terrific Tuesday. Great job getting out there yesterday despite feeling the blahs.

I'm already NOT wanting to run after work today, but I'll channel my inner-Mel and get my run on anyway. ;)

Happy Tuesday!!

Man I am so behind on blogs, I may have to roll through some without commenting.

Good for you running at zen pace! Sometimes I need to run sans Garmin once in awhile to get zen.

That cartoon is great! I can just see you waving to all the "serious runners". :)

I HATE when Garmin is dead, but once you get over the initial panick, I always have a more relaxed run. :)

Swim, bike, what? said...

I love that you couldn't find an excuse NOT to run. I hope to be there someday...

My hubby, RunMan, is doing the Nike 10k this year. He'll get up in the morning, strap on his Nike+ and run his 6+ miles. This was the first event he did last year and is what sparked his love of running...

And like Jesse - he just got his free t-shirt. Not everyone gets one though...

TRAFFIC and commutes in general are the WORST. i vote you should never have to do that ever.
