Now - Day 1

Just for fun, I'm going to try and write every day in June. The theme for this month is "Now" which is perfect for me as I like to write off of the top of my head and call it good.

It's the only way I can get myself to post, you see. I get terrible posting fright if I don't just write it and post it. If I save a draft, I tend to go back over and over it, finessing and fretting over what I'm trying to say and I end up never posting. My way around that is to just write, post and call it good. Which is also why I don't go back and re-read my stuff very often, I think I would be horrified.

So, today is a day of hating my clothes and hating my hair, which usually means I didn't run this morning. I can't tell you how many times I've told people things like "I've never regretted getting up to run and almost always regret it when I don't". I mean this with every single ounce of my being and yet, here we are, me feeling fat and mentally sluggish all day because I had a hard time falling asleep last night so I skipped my morning run.

But, on the plus side, I've dowloaded new running music (Lady Gaga, Fame Monster) which I love and makes running so much more enjoyable. Plus, I finally found some running clothes I like - I've given up running shorts for knee length running tights and I'm never looking back. No chaffing, no riding up, just perfection. Although, I do not understand why it's impossible to find women's running clothes with actual pockets in them.

I'm also "training" for a 10k. I found this training program online and even though I don't have a specific race in mind, I'm enjoying having a goal again.
