Some would say I have a little OCD... (OK, maybe I do when it comes to cleaning but not when it comes to my love-hate relationship with even numbers and 5's) I have a really good excuse for the number thing! Here is another story from my later childhood/teen years. The days of living on the "big block" couldn't last forever. We moved to a bigger better house when I was in 6th-7th grade (about 10 blocks away-2 big blocks over). This new house however came with a ghost. This ghost would change the time on my alarm clock if I set it to an even number or a 5 (I tested this many times). Creepy right? No way, I embraced this oddity. To this day, I HAVE to set my alarm clock with a time ending in 1, 3, 7, or 9... This number thing has sorta manifested into my daily living. For example I request odd number hotel rooms (on an odd floor and odd number)... But this 5 mile run is messing me up! I love running 5 miles but deep in my bones I know I should hate it, the ghost wouldn't approve of this... I rocked out another 5 miles this morning faster than ever! My ankle is bothering me a little but other than that I feel super strong! Motivated!
Super excited for the weekend races! I just realized that no matter what I am going to get 2 new PR's... It will be my first time racing an official 10K and 5K... So no matter how fast or how slow I run, I am still a winner!
Now is as good of time as any for a little give-a-way! So Check out my prizes tab to see how to get something really cool....
