Sunday Morning Run

This is a doctored cell phone photo from my run this morning.  It was a glorious morning for a run.  Nice and warm (nearly 50º) and somewhat cloudy.  I chose a route near my house which included lots of hills.  The first 3 miles was mostly uphill.  

I had not run for 10 days.  I have totally lost my motivation.  But my run this morning was good.  I will try to get back on track.

On Wednesday of this week I was in a bad mood and went to Costco for lunch (really, really bad idea).  I left there with a new television set and an idea to get a 24 hour fitness membership.  Later in the afternoon, I ordered the 24 hour fitness membership... from Costco... $289. for 2 years... sounds like a good deal.  However, since I ordered it online, I had to pay $9. to ship it?  And I haven't gotten it yet.  What is there to ship?  Why does it cost $9.?  

Anyway, this will solve the bad weather problem.  And maybe a new gym will give me something new to do.  There is one very near my house.  I had a trial membership once and loved being able to get on a treadmill so close to home.  I could come home from there and get ready for work without spending a lot of time or gas.  

I am hopeful that my little crisis is over and I can get back to fitness and training.

I hope the gym membership helps with your motivation. I've grown to be quite fond of the gym in the past few months.

Great pic and I hope the new membership works out well! I would dispute the shipping charge.

I have enjoyed our gym so far! Some of the machines are a nice alternative for a little cross training.
