An Incredible Machine
I got an Iphone for my birthday, which makes it amazingly easier and more convenient to update my music. Also, I now have the Nike + app :-) Runs are changing for me FOREVER!
I ran 4 miles using the Nike +. This is the first time I've had something telling me where I was in the run at all times. It was amazing. I am now addicted.
I just want to say one thing. Chafing. Ow. I'm still about 10 - 15 pounds over my goal weight, and I wore shorts today for the first time in a while. Well, my inner thighs rubbed together a little too much and now they are sore. Dang it.
Just as I was about to finish my run, the Sugarland song "The Incredible Machine" came on. It was perfect. It was one of those moments. Here are some of the lyrics:
"A heart that beats
An incredible machine
Made of blood and love
And hope and lust and steam..."
Well, I definitely like thinking of my body as an incredible machine. I feel it getting stronger every day, as I inch closer to 40... :-)
Here's the video, in case you haven't heard the song!
(Also, I think I may want to get Jennifer Nettles' haircut...)
