Last night my running buddy Becky called to see if I wanted to run this morning. At 6:15. I can't say that I really wanted to run at 6:15, but I needed to do it. And I knew I would be glad to get it over with.
It is amazing how much easier it is to get up and run at that hour when you are meeting someone. I would have never gotten up today at 5:45 to just go run by myself.
It was a good run - I did have to walk once, but only for about 1 minute. I was shocked (SHOCKED) when I came home to map the route out and calculate our pace - 3.75 miles, 9:15 pace!! That's almost a full minute faster than I usually run. No wonder I had to stop and walk for that minute. I am of course doubting that my watch was correct, so I may double check with Becky and see if she had the same time.
Packing up the apartment is going well. We make the move a week from today, so we still have some time. I was going through a box that I haven't unpacked since college and I found my bottle collection (NERD ALERT!!). I forgot how cool it was (NERD ALERT!!). Most of the bottles are quite generic, but I did fine two really cool miniature Benedictine bottles - like in that picture, but small. I think one of the two is actually a bit older, based on some of the features. It's kind of fun to think that I might have a bottle worth $8 whole dollars. Once the move is done and we are all settled, I may have to start collecting again.
