time: 18ish minutes
3/4 of the way through the first mile, my right knee started aching a bit on the inside. i'm a leg-jiggler at work, and that's the leg that bounces most of the time. i suspect that was the culprit, because my left knee, which doesn't jiggle, was fine.
i never got to the point of agony or 'can't do it', but it was definitely a bit harder to push through today. and that's ok, that means i'm stretching my muscles.
in other news, i've decided i love the song 'beer for my horses', but i really need someone to write a song for military brats. or just me. i know part of the lyrics would be:
'i was born across the sea,
but i'm not an immigrant.
i've done things that'll make you jealous,
and things that'll make you cry,
and all because of a bloody uncle
who took my Dad away from me.'
and i think the refrain should go:
'i know what it means to be free,
and just who it is that waters the tree of liberty.
i honor the ones who've gone before me,
and not just the Blue and the Grey,
but also Susan B. and MLK -
and Dad is my hero, more every day.'
... and it needs something. well, a lot. like verses and polishing. and something about wanting to be a SEAL when i grew up, only to find out that literally, i didn't have the balls for it. (because i'm a girl, silly, not because i'm short on courage!)
except that i just made myself sniffle, so i need to stop here. *hugs flist*
