I can run 30 miles on my 30th birthday.
This is a plan I've been hatching for awhile now, but I had originally planned on doing the miles on June 23, 4 days after my birthday. (For anyone who's bad at math but is still planning to get me a gift, my actual birthday is June 19.) I was supposed to work at a math professional development put on by my school. While I have ran at 4am to get 20 miles in before a normal workday, I thought 30 might be pushing it. I was ok with waiting, but I'm flying to San Antonio for a work conference on June 23, and I wasn't sure how my legs were going to feel about all that.
Now, the professional development has been moved to the following week, while I'm in Texas, which leaves me wide open on my birthday, THANK GOD.

It's a downer that I won't get paid for it, but the good news is that running for 5-6 hours is free. It's also an excuse to eat extra cake. Just kidding, I don't need an excuse for that, I just need cake with enough frosting to make it worth my time.
Finding out that I don't need to set my alarm clock for most of next week is really helping me push through this last week of school, and trust me, times are tough in my classroom. Today we had our end of the year picnic, but, just like last year, we barely had enough ice cream for the students, so I didn't get any. Worse, my teammate got crazy with opening the M&Ms, and they exploded all over the ground, and zero went into my mouth. Torture.
|I didn't even get any whipped cream!|
Have you ever run "birthday miles"? I never have, but I figured I better get it in now because it's rapidly becoming unrealistic.
Do you feel at risk now that a simple coach slap could land you in jail? I tell you, this caused me some serious fear, I emailed my close friends who enjoy ass slapping as much as I do to warn them. While some people posted thoughtful entries about serious political issues, the Ochocinco story was top priority in my world.
