10 Miles - Check!

Got up as planned and finished 10 miles before 6:30 a.m. this morning. Okay, more like 6:40 a.m. . . .Mike was pacing in the driveway waiting for me to get home so he could get to work on time. (A little tummy issue with the Cliff Bar made me a little late.)

Will post more later, but gotta clean up the house because my mother-in-law will be coming back here with Mike after he gets off of work. She already knows I'm domestically-challenged (She is already well aware that I don't/can't cook and my son asking her what her ironing board was just sealed my fate.) so I don't want to look like I can't keep the house clean either (I can't, but we're just talking about impressions here. If she ever needs a press release though, I can write that like nobody's business. :)

I can't keep my house clean either and it drives my mother crazy. Last time she visited she said she wasn't coming back. Win/win!

Good job on the early morning run!

Nice job!!!

I'm another in the unkempt home club. I try---I really do. It just never looks picked up.

And ironing!!! Ha!!! I don't even own an ironing board. I send all my husband's dress shirts to the cleaners. Ten years ago, I divested myself of my ironing board and have never looked back. Fifteen years of washing and ironing dress shirts was definitely long enough.

So glad your run went well. I'm impressed that you did all that running, by yourself, and got it all done before most people even thought about getting out of bed!

Wow, 10 miles before 7 a.m. holy crap.

If it makes you feel better, when i need a skirt ironed, i give it to my husband. Seriously, I don't know how - I used to as a teenager with a nametag job where I needed to know, but I promptly forgot and it's been wonderful ever since.

My household maintenance has slacked off some since I started the marathon training. But I feel better mentally, even if I am a complete neat freak!

Glad your 10 miles went (most of the way) smooth!
