It is official! I cannot drive the speed limit!! All this running has turned my life into a race from Point A to Point B. Today Point A was my house and Point B was ¾ of a mile from my house where I got pulled over on my way to work going 74 in a 55. I didn’t even know my car could get to that speed that fast. I am a dental assistant, NOT a dentist. A speeding ticket in Minnesota is a whole day’s work for me. I’ve been pulled over 11 times in 3 years (not all for speeding. I occasionally run stop signs too!) The nice young 20 something officer asked for my license and proof of insurance which I could not find (I blamed this on my husband). He took my license back to his patrol car and returned a moment later. Turns out my Driver’s License expired on my birthday, October 10th. Fortunately, he just warned me on this and told me to head into the DMV. Not a good morning! To top things off I started studying my expired license. In Minnesota your driver’s license lists both your height and weight. Mine says 5’8” and 125 lbs. Now, either the scale is lying or this very professional state issued official ID is lying. I decided to believe the official ID today because we were ordering out for lunch at work and I didn’t want to miss out!! In all actuality, I am 5’7 ½” and this morning the lying scale put me in an altogether different decade than my license shows. This running 60 *@#$* miles a week has made me gain weight!
On the running front, I finally made it home from work and hockey practice at 8:00pm which allowed me a 5 mile treadmill run. It went well but I hate running at night because that is my wind down time. I usually get up and do it in the morning but I was extremely unmotivated this morning. My boss is heading to Cancun on vacation so I have 2 glorious weeks off of work!! The weather is unseasonably warm in the extended forecast so I will be enjoying a few last warm outdoor runs!
Everyone is sleeping in my house, including my husband! Time to crack a bottle of my screw lid Cabernet and watch reruns of Everybody Loves Raymond!! Good Night!
