A runner like you, mama

As we were leaving the park today, Angry Toddler saw a woman running on the street. He got all excited and pointed. He said, “Mama, mama, she’s a runner like you, mama”. I can’t tell you all how good that felt. Seriously, when you’re child sees someone soo athletic and thinks of you. I want those thoughts to stay in his head. I’m glad he will never be able to remember the lazy, larger Angry Julie.

I actually haven’t ran much this week. I usually track my running with the RunLogger application on Facebook. It’s pretty nifty. I’ve ran over 21 miles this week and averaged 4.79 miles on each run. That is not too bad. If I ever want to run a 1/2 Marathon, I need to get my miles up though.

I finally went to the doctor on Thursday this week, after having some issues for a couple of days. Ugh, I was right all along, and had a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection). I seriously think it was from running; either from the long mileage and not showering right away (within the hour), or issues related to my mud run, which seems forever ago. I’m on all kinds of drugs right now, which make my stomach hurt.

Hopefully, I can do alot more running next week. I’m glad that the weather is getting cooler, cause I might be encouraged to run outside a little more.

I don’t have an races planned right now either. I think I’m going to do one on Thanksgiving with my pal, Mo.
