grumpy running. now with more swearing!

Saturday night I went to bed all grumpy because I knew that even though Sunday was my sleep in day, I would eventually have to get up and run 6 miles. And I was not excited about running 6 miles. I feel really apathetic this time around. The good thing about training for a second […]
