Suck it up, Buttercup!

5 miler today;  What was on the schedule?  4 miles....oops.  You ever think, I know what I have to run tomorrow?  Yup, me too.  Except I thought I was supposed to do 5.  Oh well.  Today felt like a pretty full week.  16 miles during the week plus I have 8 this weekend and I'm back to cross training as well.  Finally, my legs are not feeling heavy when I'm running.  So, not too bad, for two weeks after a marathon.  I know my legs are still recovering so I'm sticking to the plan --- as long as I look at the damn thing!


Look what I got in the mail yesterday from Michel over at Babyweightmyfatass.  Yes, a new running sticker to add to my collection of running stickers!!!!!  That makes number 8.  She also sent me a finishers button for the Suck it up, Buttercup! Virtual 5k - my first of those!  Haha!!  I didn't know we were getting medals!!!!!  In addition, she sent a nice little note congratulating me on my marathon which was a really nice touch.  My wife thought the note was really nice.  She said "but why would you want something about pregnant women(you know, Baby Weight?)"  Hahaha.  I don't know what it is about running stickers and my wife.  The last couple I received she has said funny things about them.  The last one I got was Mom vs. Marathon and if you recall, she said why do you want something to do with Moms.  Haha!!!!

Great sticker Michel

I love the pin!
Really though, for someone to take the time to go and get pins made for their virtual runners....WOW.  I thought that was amazing!  You really do meet some amazing people in the blog world and I hope someday to meeting many more of them in person.

So.....I know you need another blog to follow, click HERE and add Babyweightmyfatass to your blog roll.  You will be happy that you did.  I am!

Question of the day?  Have you participated in a Virtual 5k since joining the blog world?

Have a great day and.......Keep Running!!!!!!
