I woke up with a bad migraine at seven, so I wrapped a bag of frozen veggies in a paper towel, took two excedrin and lay on the couch for a while. We had two blueberry muffins (courtesy of Starbucks leftovers) for breakfast, and then Nat left to walk to work at 8:30. About 2 minutes after he left I realized, “I should have walked to work with him!!” I thought about whether or not I could catch him for about 30 seconds and then leapt off the couch and decided to try. I threw on a jacket over my pajamas, put on my slightly-too-small vans, and took off sprinting down the sidewalk.
I did catch up with him, and it was so cool to walk to work with him. Doing things like that always feels to me like a mini-vacation, I think because it’s special. It is a BEAUTIFUL morning, and really fall-crispy-clear, and I was glad for the migraine that woke me up. I felt silly walking back looking all disheveled and morning face, and my toes were hurting from running so fast but it’s about a mile and a quarter to the hospital, so I think I’ll start walking him there and running back.
And now it is off to day 3 of training. I look forward to it all becoming second nature, when I will look back on all the training and laugh at how clueless I was.
