Today I’m joining Amanda at Running with Spoons for “Thinking Out Loud”.
What’s on my mind…
Today marks the day I got back into running 1 year ago! I started out slow with the C25k app on my phone and progressed from there. I ran a half-marathon in February and have a few more coming up. I am so happy to be back !
My next half marathon is coming up this weekend.
I am getting a little nervous… I know I need to trust in my training and my abilities. I am also starting to obsess over the weather… we have rain in the forecast on Sunday. I am excited that I will have some spectator support at this race … the hubs and our friend Hurricane Baby will be there to cheer me on. It looks like a fun race, and I plan to have fun and enjoy myself!
Speaking of weather … I am getting a little tired of Rain! Here in Houston it seems like it has rained non-stop since Sunday evening. We have had flooding from the 16-20 inches of rain we received Sunday night into Monday morning. Work was a no-go on Monday since I couldn’t make it too far out of the subdivision. While we were very fortunate that our house didn’t flood, it is very sad running through the neighborhood and seeing those that did.
One of our cats, Mr. Squeekers, has been on my mind a lot this week. He had a little health issue last week, but he is on the mend. He is supposed to be on a mix wet cat food and pumpkin, but he is not really wanting to eat it. He really wants the dry food and the other cats really want his wet food. I’m getting a little frustrated at feeding time!
Well, that is what is on my mind this Thursday!
