Why?


Why in the world did I think it was a good idea to get up on Saturday morning and run over 9 miles?!!? My highest mileage since the end of July has been 5 miles-once a week if I am lucky. This was a dumb move on my part. I am lucky I did not get injured. I started off strong ( 9-10 minutes a mile) and ended not so strong--I am guessing a 12-14 minute mile pace for the last 3 miles!!
Why do people that know me ( personally or professionally) insist on looking into my grocery cart to " see what you eat." This kind of annoys me. It happens often. Some people make comments and the rest try to pretend they really are not looking in my cart, judging me on my food choices! It should not bother me, but it does. How would they like it if I commented on the 12 ( yes TWELVE) 2 - liters they have in their cart?? I know the sale was BUY 10 get the 11th free ( and you have an extra one at that!), and that most of your choices are diet..but who needs 12 - two liters of anything?!?!
Why does it cost so much to eat healthfully? My grocery bill is higher and higher every week and for the most part I buy the same stuff. Food manufacturer's need to make more coupons for those trying to eat well. I don't mean more fat-free and low fat/baked chip coupons either. They should make coupons for fresh fruits and vegetables, organic products and unprocessed foods.
Why am I thinking about running 10 miles next weekend? Because I am hardcore that's why. Or just plain stupid.


I would like to give a shout out to Matt and Miles!! They are celebrating their birthday's tomorrow!!
Matt is turning the BIG 3-0 and Miles is 1!!! Love you both!!!
