Guess what showed up in my inbox this week?
This little beauty!
You know I hung it up on my wall at work right away!
The certificate represents the perfect reminder to just take a deep breath and carry on whenever anything at work starts to bug me!
I hunt the certificate in its rightful place: near my picture of Adam, Cecil and tin of fancy chocolates. All the important stuff in my life in one spot.
So, you remember on Monday it was 82 degrees on my run? Last night it was 62 degrees! Yep, that arctic blast has finally hit South Florida!
I went for a nice easy run before warming up with a chicken burrito bowl from Chipotle.
Does anyone else get creeped out by DEAD end signs? I think they should be called something else!
My body is not made for the cold! It took me 2 miles to warm up and I only had 3 miles on the schedule for the day!
I love running in the cooler weather, but my calves always feel so tight at first when I run in temps below 80!
So, a little off topic, but today is a really special day. Today is Adam and my 10 year anniversary of being together! We met when we were both going to the University of Central Florida in Orlando. Not soon after we started seeing each other he moved from Orlando back to South Florida where he’s from.
Long distance relationships don’t work right? Especially when the relationship is between two kids, aged 18 and 20, who live a typical college lifestyle! That’s what the haters said anyway! (hah!)
Let me tell you a long distance relationship can work (temporarily) very easily if you have found your soul mate! As corny as that sounds, it’s really true! Adam and I were long distance for a year before I decided to transfer schools and move down to South Florida too.
♫ Ain’t nothing better, we beat the odds together
I’m glad we didn’t listen, look at what we would be missin’
They said, “I bet they’ll never make it”
But just look at us holding on, still together, still going strong ♫
♫ You’re still the one I run to,
The one I belong to,
The one I want for life ♫
Transferring schools and moving to Miami in 2006 was the best decision I ever made.
I get to be with the love of my life everyday, we adopted a perfect cat, I found a city I’m happy to call home and I get to call the 3X champion Miami Heat my team.
LIFE IS GOOD!
Happy anniversary, Adam!
