10 minutes of a 1440 minute day
We started with Indiana Jones and his beard. Indy taught a class on Mola Ram. I was the student with “I love you” on her eyelids. Every time I blinked, he’d say “ooo!” Shift gears, we’re now Dragon Hunters. Poor Ms. Nibbles (the kitty); she gets chased a lot. Do you know what special power unicorns have?

Today, I only completed 7.5/10 intervals and 10/10 loitering achievements unlocked on a street corner (sans high-heels). Supposed to be 10 x 400 meter intervals at 5-K pace. I went with 0.25 mile intervals because I’m from the USA...
I’ve been procrastinating intervals for an hour now. Time to go …
At long last, my dream came true. I have lit a spark. I have inspired someone. Yesterday at my mom’s, I saw my step-sister who I hadn’t seen in awhile. These were her words to me: “I haven’t smoked in a month, and I started that C25K program you told me about.” She said all of my Facebook posts (all 3?) of my race pictures motivated her.
