Actually Pretty Good

Today started off pretty, blah. Not good, not bad, just - a day. I went to whine to Charles, how I often do, to ask to tell me to go to the gym. It worked, and he decided to go for a run with me. Now Charles runs about twice as fast as I do, but we figured we would start out together.

It was actually good to have someone to go with. My heart rate started pretty low even though it was a bit faster than I normally start off - but could keep conversation going.

Here's the down side. We matched. Both had lighter blue long shirts, dark pants/shorts - just too matchie match for me. When I mentioned this to Charles, he said "Oh, I left my camera upstairs". Riigghhtt... Those of you who know me, know I like to coordinate my outfits, but HATE matchie match outfits, and DESPISE couples/workout partners/whoever who wear matching outfits. I mean, Charles and I are super cute (see this older pic of us - and he is in a relationship), but not when we matchie match.

Anyway, the run was really good with a finish up Capital Hill that was easier than expected. Few walks. Decent average heart rate. And the best, little knee and foot pain. YAY!!

The girls in the fitness center downstairs apparently always match. I noticed they were all wearing pink today, and asked if it was something about breast cancer awareness. "No," they said, "Mondays we always wear pink."
