That is what my training partner called me this morning ... and he was not being complimentary!
He arrived at my house early for our standing Tuesday/Thursday morning run this morning because we were planning to run 12 miles instead of 10 miles -- but I didn't respond to his text right away like I usually do -- because I was fast asleep in my bed.
I set my alarm for PM instead of AM by mistake (not the first time I have done this!), so I woke up to my cell phone ringing instead. Thankfully he actually called me this time - last time I overslept he just went home!
Despite my tardiness, we still managed to run our normal 10 miles before I had to get ready for work and I earned the moniker, Sleeping Beauty!
On a separate note, Mark and I talk about everything under the sun on our runs. Politics. US Weekly. Our families. Triathlon. Running. Headlines. Etc.
Well, Mark is a Lutheran Pastor and we recently had a conversation about religion. It might be a surprise to most given his profession, but religion has not been all that of a frequent topic on our many training adventures. Anyhow, in our last conversation, I told him (which he somewhat already knew) that I wanted to commit some time doing a Bible study, but I have struggled to find one that fit my full-time work schedule.
He responded that "it's a shame you don't know anyone who knows a lot about the subject and who you spend lots of time with, with nothing to do but talk." I took Mark's response as an invitation and with that, we have started our own little Bible study discussions on our runs. I love multi-tasking!
We had our first lesson this morning and the run went by in a flash.
PSA for the day -- double check your alarm clock!
