But I "ran," two miles, without the use of an iPod or a boyfriend. The iPod was out of battery life, and I didn't have time to make a new playlist anyway.
I tried counting steps by the tens, but lost track at 1500.
I tried to run the entire distance I marked for myself, but failed.
It was partially mental, partially because I hadn't eaten anything this morning.
But I made it out there, The Girls successfully strapped in with a sports bra, running bra, and running top to protect them, and last run's problem of riding shorts resolved with a pair of sliders underneath my soccer shorts. My motivation: the text message I would send my wonderful man, who is out of town on business.
Now I am on my way to my college town to see my proper class graduate on time. Let's hope the eating stays good!
I'll post pics later.
