Dear Ash...

Even though Lou cancelled today's run doesn't mean you should skip running altogether. Hal Higdon's plan says to run 2 miles today. You need to do that. Or perhaps 3, and then rest Friday and Saturday. You need to have one last great run before the Half Marathon. It will give you peace of mind. And an extra 400 calories burned would be nice.

Don't go home and flake out on the run. It will be light until 6:30. You have to do it. Don't let the dogs crying guilt you out of it. Don't let thoughts of dinner suck you in. Or the couch and DVR'd tv shows. They'll be there when you get back.

<3 Ash

PS - Your blog readers WILL hold you accountable. They SHOULD give you hell if you don't do it. You need to post your Nike+ results tonight as proof.

PPS - the funniest non-ad fake ad ever....


  1. Hell hath no fury like a blog reader scorned! :) Get out there!

  2. How did he know that I'm dying for an XC90?!

  3. Definitely holding you accountable! Get out there and have one last go before your big race. You will NOT regret it! Then you can enjoy the next couple of days without regret, and catch up on some of those tv show.

    GO ASH!!!!!!!

  4. Can't wait to see the Nike+ results tonight :-D

    And thanks for the laugh!!

  5. I love your letter to yourself. And yes... we will hold you accountable. So GO RUN! :)

  6. I need to write a letter like this for going to the gym.

  7. LOL! I love it. GET YOUR BUTT OUT THERE!! Can't wait to see the Nike+ results.
