Best laid plans

I packed my running gear!   I swear I did!!!  However my first morning in Indianapolis and it is thunder, lightening and raining.  No run for me today.  It's actually supposed to be rainy the whole way through my visit. Well then..... 

I've already decided that if I don't get many/any runs in this week that I will complete all of week five of the couch to 5 k program again. I honestly did not just fly through the first two days when I completed them.  Don't get me wrong, I did them in their entirety and I didn't cheat...but at one or two points it took some willpower to not stop walking before the program told me to stop running!!!   So repeating will not be a big deal (the program recommends repeating a week of you feel as if you are struggling anyway!).   

So all of that to say that my four running outfits may be going home pristine and clean.

Why yes, I am in Indianapolis through the weekend!  I am visiting a good friend (julie) for a few days.  Her kids are adorable and are already warming up to me. So even with the rain it will be fun just maybe a bit more relaxing than we thought.  Hahaha. 

I got here an hour or so before julie got off of work.  I was planning on hitting up a museum that I had researched online.  It was supposed to be open Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays.  Alas, when I arrived at the museum the hand printed sign on the door said 'appointment only on Wednesdays'. Nice. (Not).   So I headed to a nice shopping area and when I saw a Dicks Sporting Goods store I knew I had to do it!!!   So what???  A friend had sent me a picture of a shirt she saw at dicks and said it was something I needed because of the title of my blog. Well sherry, I did it!   

This little gem is no longer on a rack in the store but in a bag sitting in my luggage!  Yay!!

There were some Nike tees that I wanted, but finances say otherwise.  :-).

There may be a break in the rain and you can squeeze in a run.

Our travels often have the same issue with closings/operating hours. We research online, make our plans and then find that reality is different from online. We've learned to make a couple of back up plans.

Enjoy yourself.
