Just call me Jackie...

Short for jackass.

After all the planning to run on Saturday instead of Sunday?  I am sitting in bed right now, waiting to crawl back in...  the heated mattress pad is heating up.

My socks are a lot further along and I could post a picture.  Well, just like I could run today.

Yesterday I heard (on the news) that one of my beloved former boyfriends was found dead in his home.  I feel like someone just kicked me in the gut.  I couldn't sleep last night.  He was having terrible problems, chronic alcoholism and many associated problems.  After our romance ended 2 years ago, we remained friends.  I am really so sad about this.

I will go do all the things I have to do today - after I wake up - and I will get my long run in tomorrow.  I did my 2 runs of 3 mile each this week like I said I would.

And tomorrow I will run 8 miles.

Today I just can't.

It's always sad when somebody we care about passes on. That doesn't mean you are a jackass. It also doesn't mean you should mis-treat yourself. {hugs}
