Excuses, Excuses

Howdy! Jessica here...

The Crazies have a confession.

It has been five weeks since we have run together. Five weeks!
Not only that, running seems to have taken a back seat in each of our lives, despite our best efforts!

My Mother in law Linda, passed away at the beginning of September. She had suddenly fallen ill, and although I was scheduled to run the half marathon course at the Ramsey Tour (one of my favourite courses), I chose to skip the race so I could spend more time with her.  I wouldn't have had it any other way. I miss her immensely.  Shortly after that, my asthma flared up and I have been unable to run.

For Denise, a dramatic increase in her daughter's athletic activities have left her struggling to find the time to run as well.

But today, FINALLY!  Finally we were to go for a run together.  It would be a short (for both of us), wheezy (for me) run --but we were going to run!! The crazies...together again.  We would look glorious! We would be the envy of all we passed!

Until my iPhone buzzed.  And the text from Denise read: You're not going to believe this.....three pants!!!!

Clearly, there would be no run for us.
So, we went to Starbucks, and hatched a plan to hopefully run on Wednesday.
So we ask of you:  What do you do when you have plenty of motivation to run, but no time?

How are you fitting in your runs?

Long may we run, (eventually. if we have pants)

Jessica and Denise
