The marathon schedule called for an easy 5 mile run today. Since I am not a fan of ice skating and my development was a sheet of ice I headed to the Y this morning to use the indoor track. I was ready and waiting for them to open the doors at 5AM and headed upstairs to the workout area. Once upstairs a fellow Y member says: "I'm glad everyone got the memo, well except for you, Jodi." It took me a second to realize what he was referring to. Turns out everyone was wearing red today except for me. Fellow Y member jokingly says, "no running for you since you are wearing gray not red." At this point the Y employee behind the desk became my new best friend when he said "hey now, I have seen that girl run 91 laps around this tiny track so I say she has earned the right to run in any color she wants." I smiled and thanked him and then off I went to run my 65 laps in my gray RNR Chicago 1/2 Marathon shirt and black running skirt. And if you were wondering, it was completely a coincidence that everyone was wearing red this morning..there was no memo!! :) It was just the right amount of comic relief to start a great day!
So, did you get the memo? Did you wear red to workout today?
Keep running, you're simply the best, and you inspire me!!
