I love to run!
I use to envy people who said they loved to run. I thought they were either just gifted in running or lying..But today, as I began my 2 hr. 15 min. run, I thought: Man I love this! It just happened when I least expected it..Not only did I enjoy my run but I actually thought I was in heaven running in south Denver. Here in Denver it is like the Rolls Royce of running/biking venues..Bathrooms every mile, trails that go FOREVER, places to buy water and food everywhere..And now, several hours and 11.4 miles later, I feel like a million bucks! Maybe 8 years of training really does get you better with time!
Really no downside except today..was a high..uh hem.."bathroom day" as I call them. This is when my bowels go into overdrive and if I do not find a potty like right now! there is trouble..Some call these "runner's trots" I call them "shits from hell". It only happens on long runs and seems to be clearly related to the previous day's diet. So maybe the chocolate cake with cream cheese filling and frosting really wasn't good for me?
It is all Becca's fault..She is in a dessert mode and how can I refuse to join her? No more complaining about muffin top waists or weight gain here..
Oh and the baby..well here she is..'Nuff said:
