I didn’t do my run this morning. Dave said “You seem tired, just stay in bed.” I did. Then I was thinking “OH NO! I have to make whoopie pies tonight for “pi(e)” day tomorrow!!” In case you didn’t read my earlier posts , Pi day was 3/14, but our company was having a Toastmasters event, so we scheduled it for St. Patrick’s day.
Anyway, I got up and scrambled to get my clothes.
Dave said, “You can just make them after dinner, I’ll run with you.”
And I went back to bed for another half an hour. Throughout this day, I realized more and more that I LOVE my morning workout. It wakes me up and makes me feel great! On the train ride home, I was dozing so much. I could barely keep my eyes open. I really missed my morning sweat fest!
The nice thing about running after work was that Dave joined me. I was really pumped to have some company. We chatted and ran leisurely. Then Dave sped up. What the heck?! I told him to slow down but he didn’t. Is that how we are going to be? So I sped up and sprinted. It wasn’t supposed to be a speed day, but I wasn’t going to let Dave kick my butt. He may be fast for the short sprint, but overall, I know I can “chick” him any day! And that’s what I did.
After dinner, I made those whoopie pies (recipe from Martha Stewart) that I had to make. I completely forgot to get ingredients for the filling (geez, the most important part!), so I just used some cake frosting. I added some green sprinkles to jazz them up a little!
I can’t wait to see what everyone else makes!
Do you ever get pulled back into bed?
I do . Dave would sometimes say, “Come here, I need to tell you something.” And then he would lift up the covers and pull me under them. I learned to come over and dodge his trick if I wanted to get my morning workout done!
What kind of pie would you make for Pi day?
Last year I made apple pie and pudding pie!
Are you competitive?
Um…YES. But only if you challenge me. I love leisurely fun runs.
