I read THIS article a few days ago and decided I should actually try it. The article from Runner's World online talks about getting chores done while running. That way, if you don't have a lot of time, you can still go running.
I decided to try it out. I had some checks to deposit so I put my house key and debit card in my running pants pocket and my two checks in my water bottle. It worked perfectly. I didn't feel like I was carrying anything different from the usual. And I overestimated how far the bank was. It's only about 1 mile from my house, which makes for a SUPER easy run. I refuse to drive there ever again. It's too simple. Why did I ever drive in the first place??
I also had to go to the post office and drop off my Netflix, but I figured that was a little too far for a quick run. But I will try it soon! The article also talks about using a backpack for more errands. I'm not sure I could handle that, just yet. It seems intriguing though and, of course, something I have to try.
So, I got 2 miles in today. Awesome. I figured I wouldn't get any in due to my studying for finals. And blogging (of course). :)
