I feel like I'm the last one to the Packing Cube party. Better late than never though! These babys are ahhh-mazing! I stuffed most of our clothes for the next 6 days into these 3 cubes and wished I had about 5 more. As long as you can remember what you packed and in which cube, they keep everything really compact & organized.POTM running goals for November, which has surprised the heck out of me! My alarm went off way too early today. Since the Puff and I will be on a redeye to NYC tonight I really wanted to spend as much time as I could sleeping horizontally in my warm comfy bed. But POTM beckoned so I begrudgingly got out of bed this morning at the a$$crack of dawn to get 3 miles done.
RunKeeper wanted 5 miles today but 3 is better than none, so there it is. I was actually even pleased with my pace today, 12:35! I would really love to see 11 minute miles soon and I know I can get there. All it takes is time and hard work... easy peasy.
Just before Mile 1 my good friend The Train came by to give me a little rest. It's been a while since I've had a train break while out on my morning run. Unfortunately The Train came to a complete stop, blocking all the morning traffic and more importantly, ME. I stood there so long waiting I got cold again. I gave up waiting for The Train to pass, changed directions and ran a whole new route this morning, which I liked!
I worked a half day today and then went straight home to finish packing. BD brought the Puff home from school, we ate dinner, and left for the airport 3 hours early.
And now we're sitting here at the airport waiting to take off.
New York HEEEEEERE WE COME!!!
