My brave body keeps putting up with what I ask it to do, so I'll keep asking it to do things. Like run ridiculous distances for no apparent reason...

great Nearly tanked by a toilet 2.37 mi 00:28 11:39 pace

I slept in this morning because it was really cold. So I thought it would be lovely to go for a run after work in the sunshine. My toilet had other plans for me though. It decided to flood the bathroom so I had to spend my after work hours ripping out the unfixable toilet and installing a new one (Bob Villa, eat your heart out). I managed to get that all done by 9 pm, grabbed Gabby the Garmin, and hit the streets. I couldn't let National Running Day go by without getting any miles in! So there, it wasn't long, but it's taper week anyway, so I can't feel that bad about it.
