Run. Dog. Cat. Cat. Me.

Everything you need to know about running and life and any other random crap I find bouncing through my mind like a ping pong ball. And always be sure your shoes are happy.

A little leg-jiggle.

It’s 4:42 am and I’m sitting here doing some crazy mad leg jiggling.

Wound up.

Excited.  Nervous, doubting, hopeful.  Weather.com is reporting in a delightful 57 degrees, I’m sipping some coffee so I’ll have even more nervous energy to leg jiggle with.

When I was younger, less cynical and questioned less I was a daily Mass goer.  That is when I learned about my leg jiggling, sitting there in the back of the chapel with a couple besties, quiet, eyes closed, centering.  SLAM Kay’s hand would come down on my knee, clenching my leg.

It is not – not – polite to snort in church, but dammit, every time I’d snort a laugh.  I was doing it again.  She would cut her eyes over at me.  It was extremely dangerous to make eye contact or we’d get the giggles like a couple of idiot teenagers instead of the idiot parents of teenagers that we were.

I have no clue what to expect today, after delusions of grandeur two weeks ago and getting my butt handed to me I have two goals:  1.  Finish.  2.  Finish strong(ish).

Amend, three goals:  3.  No barfing.

“My brains, his steel, and your strength against sixty men, and you think a little head-jiggle is supposed to make me happy?”

Legs are jiggling.  Drinking coffee, eating my bagel.

I feel like barfing.
