"For Whom The Bell Tolls" - Metallica

I love this Metallica song.

[random fact] I super love that they use the word "whom".

So ya, I'm gonna toot my own horn here for a second and say - - -

holy. freaking. crap.


e v e r.

So I wasn't 100% motivated today. I hadn't been able to get my (&$@%# garmin to work [indoors] after three failed attempts. Ya, coaches LOVE that.

So I started. I was fine. No music. No TV. Just me and my moving piece of rubber [oh and that Garmin thing].

Enter mile 4. no joke - it WAS mile four!

enter cow bells.

Yep, Pita & Peanut.

Ringing Boston [John Hancock & Niketown] get my head right.

Guess what? It. freaking. worked. Long [awesome] run done.

Pita ran [literally-see he CAN run] from the photo opp.

Peanut - stuck around to show off her goods.

Just a huge, "I'm so grateful" moment.

In the words of Trader Joe's . . . "thanks for listening.reading."

Do you keep your cow bells?
Do you use them?

How useful "cowbells" would have been while raising my kids. I had no idea how motivational they were! This should not be kept a secret.........
