One should have made one’s blog post earlier (one being me).
I am sitting with a paused movie in my DVD player while my husband, Steven, runs to Stewart’s to get us a couple of chocolate shakes. If there was an ice cream place on our side of State Street (which is Route 5), we could have walked for our treat, but then I would not be typing in my post, so I guess everything has its advantages (I don’t think that is a run-on sentence).
My first intention was to do a Running Commentary post this morning. I fell off the running wagon in a big way this week. You see, I had an awesome long run last Saturday and was all set to register for the Falling Leaves 14K in Utica, NY, on Sept. 23. Luckily I talked to my mother first and found out a big family thing had just been scheduled for that day. Family first! I had not been running since. In my defense, that was not the only reason. I had a bear of a busy week (didn’t even get all my stuff done), and the weather was SO humid. As regular readers know, I am prone to heat injuries (which really are a thing, so quit shaking your head) (you know who you are).
Where was I? Ah yes, nowhere but still trying to make a blog post. I went for a short(ish) run this morning. Steven and I went to a couple of places in Little Falls: The Old Barn Marketplace and Ruggiero’s Trattoria. We came home, and I took a nap. Sorry for even more whining (then again, I do always say go with your strengths), but I had a terrible headache. It is finally easing off, so Phew!
Here are the shakes! While I might not be any great shakes at blogging (see what I did there?), I will enjoy this! Steven is re-starting the movie (Double Indemnity, one of my favorites!), so I am going to call this a Scattered Saturday, hit Publish and drive on.
