I just felt like run-ning!

I watched Forrest Gump last night, and the part where he's running across America always gets me. Where does he sleep? How does he pay for stuff? (because he didnt take any money with him when he left his house) Are his feet just totally blistered? He appears to do the whole thing in one pair of shoes...I dont think that is good for you. Do his knees and hips bother him from running that much? And how does he run that much when he hadnt even been training!? I need to learn to stop analyzing movies.

Anyway. I am so proud of myself today. I have the afternoon off. And it's St. Patricks Day. It's also 70-some degrees here in KC. Perfect weather for sitting on the patio drinking some green beers. But nope! I am going to go home and get in my 8 miles first. THEN I shall treat myself. I even turned down some invitations to go start drinking this afternoon with my friends. I'm either dedicated, or old and boring. We'll go with dedicated.

My first visit to your blog! Yep those green beers are tempting. At least while you're running your 8miles, you can look forward to a couple of cold ones.
