And the mind took the prize! Last night I went for a nice little run. I don't know if it was the cool weather or the fact that I hadn't been on a run for a few days, but it felt really good. However, I got to mile two and my body started acting up, though...like a cranky toddler in the backseat wanting to get out of the car. You know, something like this:
Body: Gee, I'm kind of getting a little tired.
Mind: Tough. We are finishing this 3 miler.
Body: I hear what you're saying, but my right shin kind of hurts. Here, wanna feel it?
Mind: What, you think I didn't notice it? Save it for the playground, Nancy.
Body: I don't care for your tone right now.
Mind: Suck it.
Body: Fine! The shin pain isn't enough for you, I can see. Here, how's a little hip pain feel? Like that, do ya!
Mind: Oohh, bring it! That's all you got! Cuz we are so pushing through this and finishing so SUCK. IT. UP.
Body: I HATE YOU!
Mind: This is for your own good! P.S. I HATE YOU TOO!
Body: Yes, we are on the sidewalk again. Take some back pain bitch!
Mind: I love back pain. LOVE IT!!!
Body: Why don't you love me?
At this time, I looked down at my Garmin and I was at 3.12 miles. Time to stop. Yay!
Mind: You made it! You are awesome!
Body: No, you are awesome. I couldn't have done it without you.
Mind: Let's never fight again.
And they all lived happily ever after....
