It figures that the week in which I cut down on mileage and intensity is an incredibly stressful week. Of course.
|This is EXACTLY how I look on the outside when I am stressed out.|

It's difficult to take part in a two-hour meeting knowing that there will be no run to shake off the negative vibes. It's difficult to shelter students from an irate parent in the parking lot who has just pulled a gun (true story--my Friday) and then come home to. . .no run.
Yoga just doesn't take care of that.
|This is EXACTLY how I look when I'm de-stressing after school. I look great with blonde hair, eh?|
Today I ran with Shelby; we did nine miles in the sun on the Towpath. Running with a friend is the BEST way to handle a taper. I am able to bitch and moan to Shelby about everything going on, and she knows the best way to pretend to listen to me. I love you, Shelby.
I'm going to end today with my traditional Mother's Day video. A word of warning: If you are offended by Mike Polk or the word MILF, well, why are you reading my blog? Anyway, DON'T click on this if you are sensitive. It's hilarious and you might not be able to handle it.
Happy Mother's Day to all my Mother Peeps. We are all MILFS to somebody.
