I've mentioned before that I'm not very good at writing posts in advance, so of course, I was going to write this week's song post on Monday morning. And I had all of the best intentions - I got up at 2:30 in the morning (after going to bed at 11) and drove to Dayton Airport to catch an ungodly early flight out to DC. I wrote the post in my head on the way there. I checked in, got through security, got some coffee, and sat down to take out my laptop... and promptly became distracted by a million other things. Caffeine on an empty stomach does that to me. Since then, I've been at the office from 6:45 AM until 8:00 PM, then I go back to the quaint little B&B I'm calling home base, have a fresh-baked cookie while I read, and fall asleep.
Sorry to Nota, who has already posted her song of the week. Go check it out!
My running has also suffered - I haven't been out since Saturday. My DC co-worker is taking me running tonight, though, so I'm very excited. Saturday was a total disaster, anyway. The route was mismarked, so my pleasant 13 miler turned into a 15.6 miler. I was completely unprepared for it. In addition to the extra distance, the route was hillier than anything I've done before. Local peeps, I had to run through Indian Freaking Hill. Steepest and longest hills, ever. I had to walk parts of the inclines and I felt like it was a failed run. Actually, I think the 4-day break has been good for my legs.
Post coming soon, I promise.
