Today I went running with Kspin. Running with her makes the world of difference for me. I'm encouraged by her to keep going when I feel like I can't take another step, even if its simply watching the bouncing of her pigtails as she goes. She smiles beside me and tells me to keep my eyes forward, and I do. I don't look at the ground beneath my feet or look for mile markers, I just keep my eyes forward.
Sometimes she is just a little dot on the horizon and sometimes she runs extra slow so I can catch up with her. I like Kspin. Does it matter that all this takes place in my head while I'm running on a treadmill? Perhaps she should get herself a PPO, my behavior is a little stalker-ish. Am I the only weirdo? Are these relationships all becoming a little too real and will Ashlee wake up someday to find I've actually moved into her basement while she slept? How can I say?
In case you're still mulling about whether I'm a total wacko lacking IRL friend and you missed the point of the part above, it was just to say I'm back up and running again. Its been nearly 3 weeks since I last run and wow, it wasn't easy to jump back on that horse. I think that all my muscle disintegrates if I miss running...just turns to goo. But I think that the running helped me a bit on my weight loss this week, down 1.2. I celebrated by gaining it all back in a single meal! Lol. Not really, I stayed within my realms, but I had good food and more Ice cream. I'd been feeling deprived and I needed a nice splurge. But now I'm back doing well and running again.
See you next time.
