You Can't Have It All

Or can you?

I was supposed to get a haircut and and massage yesterday. I had just enough money to do those two things and pay for my dinner. Well, after my haircut was over, the nearby stores began calling my name. I so badly wanted a massage. And I wanted to be able to walk into a store and buy whatever I wanted. Unfortunately there is this little thing called reality that always spoils my fun.

Clothes ended up beating out the massage in the end. I kind of regretted that decision but at the completion of my shopping day I had made three solid purchases so it was okay and I was content.

Now for the cool part of the story...

Today I ran in my second 5K. I don't really know how these things work yet, so unfortunately I'm not sure of my time. It wasn't too great but I had fun and I am still amazed at the fact I can run 3 miles every single time I do it so that was enough for me to be proud of.

Just as I crossed the finish line and looked up the crowds parted and my serendipitous treat was revealed: FREE CHAIR MASSAGES. So I marched my sweaty little self up to the poor massage therapist and allowed him to make my day. (Sorry, dude.)

I guess sometimes we can have it all:)

That is so cute!!! Chair massages are AWESOME. Sometimes I actually prefer those because they focus on what's usually always my sore spots (neck/shoulders). Yeah for your 2nd 5K! You'll have to show us pics of your new outfits :)

What a great story!! Thanks!! You've gotta love it when everything works out like that! I'm actually a Massage Therapist (not a masseusse. That name has kind of a bad rap with it, so we try to encourage people to say Massage thereapist. :) ) and the whole sweaty thing - all part of the job! Way to go with the 5k. I can barely run 1/3 of two miles, and my hubby just asked me to do a triathalon (sprint or the one smaller than that) with him at the end of the summer. Ahh better get my butt in gear.
