Getting Over—pico vs island trees

Talk about perfect timing. In my kitchen getting some water, and I hear the pinging of water on the air conditioner. Rain! Good thing I only ran for an hour today after all.

And now today’s episode of Sarah Makes Fun of Herself, titled “Oooh ONLY an hour…girl, please!”

So you’re disappointed in yourself for JUST running for an hour, huh? Really?! How easily you forget how a month ago you would’ve thrown yourself a party after such a feat. (I believe the actual sentiment was something like “I love me and want to buy me diamonds.”) And now you’re beating yourself up about only making it an hour today when your goal was 90 minutes. Come on, Ms. Glass is Half Empty…I think you’re forgetting that the glass is really big and you’ve been filling it up for AN HOUR. If you won the lottery you’d be like, “oh man! This sucks. I wanted to win two lotteries!” Give yourself a little credit. Don’t become your own stage mom, withholding meals and sleep until you can sing “the sun’ll come up tomorrow” in perfect pitch. You friggen ran for an HOUR this morning. Chin up, chum!

The end.

Honestly though, this hour was a big challenge. I’ll blame less consistency in running and sleeping the last couple of weeks, as well as rehearsals running until midnight and the change in gloomy weather. I know, I know…if it were too easy I’d get bored…but I promise I wouldn’t complain if it got a leettle easier. Hear that, running gods???
