Sunrises, Trains, and WalMart

This morning, I woke up at 4:45 a.m. to meet up with my running group for an 8 mile run! Today's run took us around a lake and we got to see the sunrise! SO gorgeous! Along the way, we were stopped by a train. We stood around talking and used that as a break. Well, the train decided to STOP. So, what did we do, we went under the train. Oh my gosh that was SO scary I will NEVER to that EVER again! It felt like that short distance took forever to get across! The smart ones in our group ran around the train! lol The weather was perfect today....sunny, clear skies, chilly...perfect running weather!

I was worried about today's run because I have only run twice since NOLA and both times, I only ran 2 miles. I guess I needed that cause today went fine. I'm so glad I got up and ran. I feel so much better!

I had a chocolate milk and yogurt for breakfast afterwards! Yum yum!

I did have to go to Wal Mart this morning on my way home and I'm glad I only needed a few items because there were only TWO cashiers open and BOTH were 20 items or less! CRAZY! People were TICKED! There was no where for those with buggies full of stuff could check out!

Anyway, I forgot to say, I also ran 2 miles with Madalynn yesterday. She wore herself out I think cause she started off WAY too fast!! lol Oh well I'm glad she's getting exercise!!!

Have a WONDERFUL Saturday!


  1. I bet that was so beautiful to see as you were running the 8 miles! Awesome job! You are crazy for going under the train!! I would have been terrified to do that! I went to walmart yesterday and there was only 4 cashiers open and 2 of them were self checkout and the other two were 20 items or less. I was not a happy camper. haha

  2. Oh my gosh it was SO scary!!! I can't believe I did that either! lol Wal Mart is crazy!

  3. I can totally relate to the Wal Mart fiasco. I thought it was just the Wal Mart near my home whose customer service has gone down hill. Even when I shop after midnight there are still many people in line (its crazy). On a brighter note I think its great that you are so commit to running that you’re willing to get up before the break of dawn to run. That’s Great!

  4. Okay, going under a train sounds terrifying!

  5. Glad you are having a nice time running here, there and everywhere! I so admire your determination!

  6. shame shame!!! no more running under trains! hoe scary! good job on the run!
    I hate walmart.
