Last week was a doozy for me. Tuesday left me with two parking tickets, and getting home from work a bit after 1 am. I wound up missing the workout Wednesday morning. I was disappointed to miss out on PR day and my quest for 12 laps. I didn’t just miss out on PR day though. I missed B’s last workout before she moves to Denver, I missed seeing Ruth back in action after missing some time due to her unfortunate accident, I missed seeing Henry and his faithful companion Christoff, I missed my tribe, I missed the best part of my week, and that sucks. Thursday, I went in for surgery to get my hernia repaired. Since then, I’ve slowly been losing my mind while being chained to the couch.
I couldn’t fall asleep last night because I was eager to be back at the workout with you all. I desperately want to be back out there, running with y’all, high fiving everyone that is crushing the workout, and pushing Joey to run faster. Also, shoutout to Liz who has been quietly killing it and doubling on Wednesdays!
Circling back to my missed Wednesday. It’s easy to take for granted the opportunity that we have every week. It’s easy to accept missing a workout because there are more chances to see the same people. We’ve got NP on Wednesdays and Fridays and a plethora of other workouts the rest of the week. I’m a big believer in learning from mistakes. My own mistakes as well as other people’s.
Last week I missed sending a friend off with a “Na Na Na Na Hey Hey Hey Goodbye”, I missed hugging Momma Price, I missed seeing one of my favorite #DogsofNP, I missed the best tribe in all of NP (totally unbiased opinion), and I missed chasing a new PR. Yea it was just one workout, but a lot can happen at one workout. I never want to miss that workout again.

Fun Fact: Bats are the only mammals that are able to fly. The “flying squirrel” can only do what the gliding opposum does — glide for short distances.
Do good, LA!
