Running Under The Influence

Good evening sweets,

I did something new tonight. I ran a one mile loop around my neighborhood with dog face. And you know what? It felt good! One mile is not normally a distance that I would run. I don't LOVE running and one mile seems like a distance that is not long enough count. Does that make sense to anyone? I did it for Buckley because he had not been out all day (for exercise). I have only recently started running with him (on leash as opposed to trail runs where he is off leash) and I have learned that the little bugger tires at about a mile and a half.


The one mile neighborhood jaunt went so well that I think I am going to make it a daily activity (on days we don't go for a longer hike). I am not counting it as my workout....more of like a sneak attack in addition to my regularly scheduled workouts. I am not sure if I should share this part, but I even ran under the influence. This is not illegal I checked with HM.


Well, now that I feel less clouded from dinner libations, I am going to go watch an episode of Gossip Girl at the gym while sweating it out on the stair climber.

What did you sweets do with your evening?

  1. Ahhh that beer is huge and looks quite refreshing. It was the first hot day here in Sac and track practice about killed me... come to find out, I have exercised induced asthma that flares up when it is hot and the air quality is poor. I swear you might have heard me trying to breath from hundreds of miles away.

  2. I'm pretty impressed that your ran after that beer! I think my stomach would murder me. I'm sure your dog enjoyed the exercise! :)

  3. I'll confess, I've run under the influence before. I had some particularly strong rum punch. The energizing effect of the sugar and the lack of inhibitions from the alcohol made me think it was a great time to try out my new racing flats. I headed out the door at 10 PM. I lasted about 2 miles, but they were a very, very fast 2 miles!
