Today I had to take an unplanned rest day because of thunder storms and hail and tornado watches. I started out around 9 and had to turn back after just a couple miles. I’ve never seen a sky so dark.
So I spent the entire day indoors and went a little cuckoo. Watched some movies, did some dancing, journaling, ab work, cooking, showering, reading, dramatically reciting poetry aloud to myself, all the normal stuff one gets into with too much time on their hands. WOW did I forget how looonngg the day is without a run! Even though I had a rest day 7 days ago haha. I forget every time. It feels like an eternity between now and then.
It stormed about half the day and when I thought it had reached its apex, I called Josh from the Sheriff’s Office (who had helped me find a place to stay) and admitted I was feeling a teeny bit scared. So he came over with his wife and daughter to check on me, by which time the storm had calmed a bit. So yeah, I felt like a baby. Oh well.
Tomorrow I will end within a stone’s throw of the Mississippi River and on Wednesday I’ll cross it! Hip hip hooray! I am pretty stoked for that.
Now since I have nothing to do I think I’ll go to sleep. Hopefully. If my body isn’t too full of unspent energy.
