I know what you mean. The first thing I look for when I pull up RunningwithEric is the Hillary Cat. 2.5 of last night's 3 miles was at my goal pace for the Race for the Cure. I might not end up embarrassing myself on Race Day. My Road ID came in the mail yesterday, so I wore it last night and felt much more confident that I might not end up in a "Jane Doe" grave should someone kill me when I'm out running in the dark. Love you muchly!
Blerg! I'm tired of being the tortoise! I want to be the hare!
I had a little motivational help today from a territorial crow who decided that of all the people running around the lake, I was the one he didn't want in his area. He dive-bombed three or four times whenever I passed through his little domain. It did encourage me to pick up my pace.
