Revisiting a dark squeaky stranger

I am not one to let a little rain stop me from getting my miles in however, when my 8 year old daughter gives my a speech about my questionable sanity and the health consequence of taking her 20 month old little brother out in "the pouring down rain!" that's when I have to remind myself that I have a treadmill.
So last night found myself on the treadmill.  You remember that squeaky old thing squashed back in the corner of our workout room.  He's still there.  He barely remembered me.  Oh, I know it was just his way of playing coy because he was hurt that I had stayed away so long.
We reacquainted ourselves quickly by running a couple set of sprints (7.5 miles running with half mile jogs to rest between).  Sweat-ville. 


Luckily for me the Recovery Socks I won from Erica arrived today.
Here are my 8 year old's attempts at a picture to show my socks. 
God bless her for trying when she was already volunteering to play with LBM while I ran on the treadmill.  She was just wanting me to get started so she could start bossing playing with her bother.
Thanks Erica!


Yes another new shirt - in pink.  And yes I pulled up my pig tails before I started my actual run.

  1. Way to rock the treadmill!

    Love the 8-year-old's guilt trip and photo skills. I tried asking my four year old to take a picture once. I haven't since.

  7. you look adorable after a good sweat - how is that possible? I'm not a fan of our treadmill much either but I use it often. The first lap or two, the belt is loose so you feel like you're going to fall :S

  11. OK I love the outfit! It's funny you wrote this. As I ran 9 outside in the rain today with G, I was thinking of how I also have a treadmill and we haven't met for weeks. I kind of miss him ...
