I've Got Really Big Pockets

May 15, 2010

Could ya spare some good vibes today?

I need a few, not for anything earth shattering, just for my long run. I'm shooting for 16.5, and for some reason I've built a huge mental wall at 16 miles.

I downloaded The Help on the old iPod, so that should help. So should the nice weather. And the candy in my pocket. And the positive self talk. And the complimentary chiropractic adjustment from the man I sleep with. And the wide variety of caffeinated athletic supplements I bought at Target last night.

The only thing that's missing is a boatload of good vibes from a bunch of people I've never met.

Good. Ness. When did I become so high maintenance?

I guess that doesn't really matter. You know what does? The fact that I'm about to make 16.5 miles my byotch.

I'll let you know how it goes.

I would kill just to be able to do 16...16.5? That's insanity in my world....I remember having to take a breather in high school running the mile, it almost killed me! You are an inspiration to homebodies like me. So think of me and my flabby ass when you hit 16....clench those butt cheeks and run. Run for ME! Let me live vicariously through you, make me proud!!

I love Me's comment. Sending loads of good vibes from Alaska - which means they should arrive just in time for that last half mile.

WOO-HOO!!! Come on, Amy, you can do this! I believe in you! (Said by the fat lazy woman who can barely waddle across a room!) :-) Have a nice run.
