The temperature came back up to almost 50 today. My evening training called for a 30 min. run. As quickly as I changed into my running clothes when I got home from work, a storm blew in. It was finished in 15 short minutes.

The first thing I noticed was all the earthworms that had come out all over the sidewalks. It brought back a special memory. As a kid I captured as many worms as I could in a jar with dirt in it. I could not get back to the house fast enough to show my mom and dad. My mother raised her voice and told me to immediately made me let all of them go. My dad would chuckled and whisper to me we should take them and go fishing. Good memories make for an effortless run.

After a 6am text message from Snips, we decided to run our long run at the gym on the treadmill. I thought it wouldn't be so bad with a friend. As I got to the gym, Snips called and the roads were treacherous and she was heading back home. I knew that mentally I was ready for the 2 hours on the treadmill.

Today, I again used Heed to drink. I like the flavor and plan to stick with it. I also had a sample pack of Sport Beans with me to try and see if it agreed with me. They tasted not bad and did not send me to the bathroom. The problem was that it was a variety of flavors and my stomach was upset by the end of the run.

I got the run in and hope this is my last long one on the treadmill. You never know- it's still early in Spring.

Waddling to watch some TV...........
