So if you haven't heard, I quit my job last Wednesday (though I still have a work from home job, so I still am working... just part time). The situation with Sonoran got even more bizarre, so I sent in my official resignation on Thursday, before heading out on a nice run in my new favorite running location!!
Since I have been working late, all my running has been on the treadmill (ahah- which brings me to another story!). I am back in running heaven. . .outdoors!!
The awesome part is there are dirt trails that run parallel to the sidewalk all around this loop, plenty of traffic, but not so busy nor fast mph. There is a larger loop (5 or 6 miles, I can't remember), and a short loop (3 miles). I use a lot of ( ) I just realized.SCORPION just chillin' there on the top step like it was waiting specifically for me, tail curled up and all. I did that last-minute-extend-your-step, thing, and nearly put my calf within stinging radius since my other leg was two steps lower. I had a mental meltdown since it was January, winter, and I haven't seen a scorpion in our complex at ALL. EVER.
(This is actually not at the complex. lol My dad's house and his sweet setup. . .there is a giant speaker in front and right of me, currently blasting Kelly Clarkson.)
So I warned everyone in the gym, nobody volunteered to kill it (all four manly men and all) and a couple people freaked, and then I turned and it was GONE. I couldn't find it anywhere!! I looked over the ledge thinking it was on a vertical surface and nope. So that was creepy and everybody left the back way, myself included. And then I didn't sleep at all that night because I had flashbacks of the scorpion house.
Anyways, next weekend is the Spartan Sprint! Anybody running it? I am not really looking forward to it, and I'm grateful it is not 9 miles like last year. We are doing it for free, because last year they messed up on our Spartan Video, otherwise I'd probably pass until next year. 6 days to get in shape. . .
POJunk that it goes from full battery to dead after one picture, the one below. We ended up moving outdoors to eat which was fun. I love the outdoors so much.
This picture is for my mom because she bought me the outfit. Thanks ma. :)
