So I can do them whenever I want to..
Which also means that I'm at the last day of the month & thinking, I didn't do my race!
So Saturday, November 30th - the last day of the month - we were out Christmas shopping all day. I mean, ALL DAY! We were out in our first store at 10:00am & shopped until we literally couldn't fit another package in the car.
I was exhausted.
& that's when I got home & saw the medal sitting on my dresser.
When they send them ahead of the race, I put it on my dresser - don't dare thinking of putting it around my neck & NEVER goes on the medal wall until the miles are done.
So it was either throw the medal in a drawer, or get to the treadmill...
Ricky ended up falling asleep & I headed to the basement.
Luckily, there was a Glee episode on the TV in front of Miley (my treadmill's name). It only gets 3 stations - one being Public Access TV which isn't very entertaining, so I try to do all my treadmill jaunts on specific times where something actually grabs my attention & not makes me want to slit my wrists from boredom on the treadmill...
Even better? It was the Glee episode with Neil Patrick Harris.. my secret BFF... I say secret because I know we would be BFF's... Neil just isn't in on this idea yet though...
I ended up walking this one... walking all day shopping, my low back still aggravated, & my runner's knee still hurting getting up the steps, I knew not to push it. After all, December 1st started the #RWRunStreak ... one mile a day till 2014... I couldn't get to that day with even more pain.
Walking it was... & it worked out well. Not much pain in the back, the knees did OK, & I still got the miles in... 3.10
I laugh because my walking time isn't too much off my running time :)
May be slow... but it was done... I could wear my medal
So I am in love with Jost Running's medals... It has become my favorite Virtual Race place. Even better? They use part of the money to fund charities - changing every month.

So there you go.. another virtual race in the books...
Now let's start the posts on the Run Streak & the Plank challenge...
