Ok, so I admit I'm more than a little bummed I didn't run yesterday. This cold is really kicking my ass so I know it was the right decision - trying to run 10 miles in this condition would have been an absolute suckfest. But still.......
Why am I bumming? Because I didn't get to try to improve my time from last year? Yeah, partly. It's a great course that's mostly downhill so I was looking forward to trying for a shiny new PR.
Because it was a missed opportunity to run with the husband? Of course! I love running races with him.
Because I didn't get my precious bling? Well, duh. You KNOW how I am about the bling.
But the biggest reason I'm bummed about not running in yesterday's race? Not the chance to rise to the challenge of a new PR...... not the opportunity to run with the husband....... nope, I'm bummed because I didn't get to wear the arm warmers purchased specifically for the Monster Dash.
In addition to being a bling whore, I am a gear whore. And I was looking forward to rocking my newest gear!

Oh well, there's always next year, right? And really, who says I have to wait a whole year? Skulls are always appropriate - I'm sure I can find another opportunity to rock 'em!
