Running - My Occasional Mistress

I have always enjoyed running. At least I enjoy it once I motivate myself to get outside and do it. I was doing really well for a while and then the job changed. And I found excuses not to do it at home - there's a soccer game on TV, it's too cold (yeah, right), my feet hurt, blah blah blah.

I get to work about an hour early. But it's not enough time to get up to the locker room, change, go back outside, run, come back inside, shower, and get dressed for work. Excuses.

And then a thought hit me. I could drive to work in my running gear and then I would have plenty of time to go for a run. Genius, huh?

So that is what I did on Friday. I ran for a little over three miles and felt good. But there was a problem.

I left my change of underwear at home.

Fortunately I had a couple of extra pair in my locker. Crisis averted. I won't make that mistake again.

I'm getting motivated again. I renewed my goal to run a marathon before I turn 30. Okay, before I turn 40.

Why is it a "pair" of underwear?

Why is it a "pair" of there such a thing as a single pant??
