I forgot!!!

they say it takes 3 weeks to develop a habit. I don't know about that, since it's been 5 months since I decided to run every day, and yesterday I forgot!

Granted, it was a busy day, and I had the best intentions. Yesterday morning I headed out to hocking hills with my parents, where we hiked around a bit. I had planned to drop them at the airport (their flight was at 7pm) and then hit the gym. We ended up having dinner at the airport before they left, so I went home to digest. The next thing I knew it was 11:45 and I hadn't run! Even a dedicated runner like me was not about to set out at midnight.

So I missed my day of running. To make up for it, though, I'm doing a double today. I just got home from 3 miles and I'll hit the gym tonight. That way I'll have the proper number of workouts, even if in that 24 hr period I didn't run.

Aug 17th

After I told Mom that I was considering the Edmonton marathon, she received an email from the Running Room saying that May 14th was an early bird deadline. Well, can't miss out on that, can I?

So. it looks as though marathon #20 will be in my hometown!
