Remember my last post? Remember when I said it’s never just a cold for us? Ear infection. Not just one but two. Two for the price of one. My poor baby. Luckily the husband was able to take her to the doctor’s appointment so that I could get some additional work done this morning, then I took the afternoon off to play mommy nurse. Mommy nurse is just about my favorite role in the entire world. Sick toddlers are pitiful, but ultimate mom secret here… the best snuggles happen during toddler sickness. IF there has to be a silver lining… at least it’s rockin’ snuggles. I don’t have any awesome pictures from today so I’ll give you these awesome pictures from previous days when L has felt like her normal rockstar self.
She is fabulous, ALL of the time.
I put lip gloss on her for the first time. Don’t judge me. It was the smallest amount of lipgloss known to man, and YES, this is a frakking selfie.
Finally– she has good taste.
Planned Run: Easy 5 between 10:41 ~ 11:43 per mi
Weather: The weather was so strange today. Humidity was high because I could feel a really fine mist, and it felt cold but as soon as I began my run I got hot. I hope that doesn’t mean I’m getting sick.
Food: I ran so late this morning, no breakfast. But I had a giant turkey sandwich and pirate’s booty about an hour before my run.
Shoes: Blue pureflow 3s.
Entertainment: The Another Mother Runner podcast. I like Dimity and Sarah. I especially liked this episode, it centered around one of their book’s essayists Alison Overholt. It made me cry.
Actual Run: 5 miles at 10:31
How did it feel: Well I was crying at my podcast and I had awful stomach stitches from my late lunch for the first 2 miles. SO it just felt awesome. Awesome. Really though. This is one of those runs I didn’t want to do. I had to go late in the afternoon after being up until 1am with a sick baby because of the way life worked out today. Again, one of those runs I didn’t want to do, but I felt 1 million times better after completing it. 🙂 I have to put my big girl panties on and get up at 4:30 tomorrow for my 10 mile (10 MILE? GOD, WHO AM I???) mid-week speed work run. Kill me now.
@Courtneybot– I’m going to need a comprehensive run down of what happened during the grammy’s last night. I only got to see the last 20 minutes or so. 🙂
