I know I'm a runner now

I spent this evening doing yard work, which I somewhat hate now because our lawn is so gross. But I felt I had to, as my father-in-law told us we needed to mow our weeds earlier this week (no joke!!). So I gave it the old college try after Tim got home from work. I mowed and weed whacked so now all my weeds are the same length as the dead grass. Fabulous. But at least it looks better from a distance. And it looks MUCH better than our neighbor's lawn, which is now like a jungle because no one is ever there to tend it. At least they have an excuse, I guess.

Anyway, as I was finishing up, I decided to pull some weeds in the front by the road. As I was yanking them out, two guys ran by. I think they tried to say something to me, but I couldn't hear them over my iPod. But for a second I seriously wanted to throw down the weeds and join them!! And I wasn't even wearing my running shoes. LOL! I guess that makes me hard-core, huh? ;-)

I have a run slated for tomorrow and today was technically a day off (despite the torturous yard work). Happy Thursday night, everyone!

LMAO! I would have loved to see the look on dh's face if you had just tossed the weeds and taken off like a bat outta hell! That makes me think of one of those Nike running commercials! LOL

Ha! You ARE a runner! Yard work is almost harder than running though!
