What? That doesn't count as late? Clearly you have no children and a night-owl husband then. In my house anything in the double digits is way past bedtime.
So why am I up and why the heck am I writing at 10:10 (yes, it took me two minutes to write that.)
The fact is, I'm in a funk. A major funkity-funk-funk. How do I know this?
Let's just say I've been hiding Tootsie Roll wrappers where Kel can't see them because there are so many of them I'm sure he would be embarrassed for me. See, I'm really just being nice to him...there is nothing weird about this behavior. Also, I had to get motivated to get up and go to Target today. Clearly if I have problems making it to Target there is a Major Motivation Malfunction (MMM...tootsie rolls) happening in my life.
Moving right along....nothing to see here....
For reals, though, it's been a rough month, and the fact that I don't have a big upcoming goal of any sort, and especially of the physical sort, is not helping.
So I've decided I need to do something epic. I'm not sure what that will be, but I've given myself a list of requirements:
- Must be done locally because I can't afford to go anywhere.
- Must involve being outside because that speaks to my soul.
- Must be cheap.
- Must be fun.
- Must be something that makes people raise their eyebrows. (So this is weird, but it wouldn't really be epic if it was something that wasn't, well, eyebrow-raising.)
- I'm thinking I would like whatever this epic thing is going to be to be relatively self-supported, i.e. not officially organized, although if anyone wants to join me they can as long as they are cool enough.
Even as I'm writing this my mind is flooding with a list of possible feats of epic-ness. Maybe a self-supported trail marathon on a random weekday (eyebrow-raising to be sure). Maybe a day where I just strap on a backpack and run and walk the whole day and see where I end up. (Note to self...do this on a weekend so Kel can come pick you up wherever you end up.) I don't think I want any epic bike riding to happen, so I'm leaning towards the running.
So, can you help me? What do you do to get de-funkify? What would qualify as an epic feat? I know at least half of the 13 people that read this blog qualify as crazy, so I want to hear your ideas. Really...
