It’s Throwback Thursday #TBT. (I really need to get my sweatoutthesmallstuff Instagram up)

So today was supposed to be a 7 mile tempo run. I took the doodle out for a few walks totaling about 3 miles and by the time I got out the door for my run it was 4pm! (I had lots of work to do on my day off) So I opted to take the 7 down to 5 and call it a day.

Funny story about mile 2….there was a man running up the road ahead of me. He was close enough that I could smell a trail of his heated up deoderant. I became an “animal” from the scent. I wanted to get a “roadkill” So I kicked into high gear to try and pass him. Just as I was about 3 steps behind he came to a dead stop! He had arrived back to his home and was done. I was so deflated:( But the good thing is that I proved to myself that I can push it if I want.

Question: Do you ever try and pass people while running? Any fun weekend plans?
