Friday's Letters #10

Insert Picture of Garmin here (see why there is no picture below).
Dear Doctor, thank you for giving me the all clear to run. Those words signaled bells ringing in my ears, and I spent the rest of the day in a splendid stupor. Dear run, you were so horribly awesome. I ran a total of 2.75 miles, but there was plenty of walking in there, and the pace was not pretty. That's okay. Baby steps are what I'm taking. Dear Garmin, thanks for dying at .37 miles. That was pretty awesome. I'm fairly certain the run would have been better had I known my pace the whole time. I looked down at first and was running 9 minutes miles. Uhhhh. After 6 weeks off in 90* heat, my legs were playing a trick on me. But don't worry! You got me good. When I could barely run at all at the end I sure appreciated your dead signal. Dear organized closet, I love you more every morning when I stumble out of bed and am able to put together and cute, comfy, and relatively stylish outfit in less time than it takes to make a cup of coffee. I will definitely be keeping you up. 
Dear USF, thanks for losing after we stayed late at the game. That was awesome. Dear weekend, I'm ready for you. Big plans are in store. They include the couch, the tv, Tim, and football. It's going to be magical. There'll be a run in there somewhere, and I just hope it's prettier than Thursday. Dear Arkansas, be sure to play just as well for the Alabama game as you did for Louisiana-Monroe. That will make us all happy. Roll tide!

Dear readers, Thank you thank you thank you for supporting me and sending positive words during the last couple of days as I've been waiting for clearance to run. It was nice to know people care. 

Have a wonderful weekend. 
Come back Monday for a great giveaway!

Congrats on getting the go-ahead for exercising again! :) I want to watch the Bama / Arkansas game so bad but I'll be at a wedding. :( Guess I'll have to settle for phone updates.

Cait said...

Rachel said...

Yeah! I am so glad you were cleared to run again! Don't worry too much about your pace. It will come back with time. Just take it slow and steady and you will be crossing the finish line of that marathon with me!

I love your cute outfit!! I love the TBs but not the price tag... sooo I don't have any :)

Melissa said...

I hate when the Garmin acts up! There is nothing more frustrating then not knowing your pace or distance when out for a run. Great job on getting back out there!

I hate running Garmin-less - so I feel ya there! Glad you got clearance and are back at it! Marathon training is right around the corner, right?!

Nicholl Vincent said...

Amber said...

I'm gonna need you to do a blog post on your closet organization. :) I need inspiration!

Where do you find your skinny belts?

Kacey said...

Yes, do a blog post on your organized closet! Glad you are able to run again!

Miss Lace said...

Having an organized closet is the best. Can't wait to get mine back in order. Congrats on the runnin go ahead. Have a great weekend!

Kelly said...

Awesome news from the doctor!! And so glad that you got back on the treadmill okay and know that baby steps are the way to do it!! You'll be back to runnin' rockstar status in no time :-) Happy Weekend, Meghan!

Meghan said...

Hooray for being able to run again! I just signed up for my first marathon (also using the Hal Higdon Novice 1 plan) so I am really excited to follow along on your marathon journey. Happy running and have a great weekend!

Happy weekend...exciting that you can run again!

Marion Green said...

So two things:
- Yay for getting clearance to run! I'm sure that was a wonderful thing to hear :)
- My Garmin always stops during the worst times (like in the middle of the best run of.my.life!)

Oh, and just so you know, I was totally kidding with those quotes in my post. The teachers I was giving them to are also friends of mine who have incredibly good senses of humor :) I would never just throw out obnoxious quotes to just anyone :) That would be just plain...well..awkward and rude!
Anyway, hope you're enjoying your weekend (and maybe another run!)
XO - Marion

Meghan said...

YAY! I am so happy for you, Meghan! You will get there in no time!
