It’s a good thing that I had you keep my plans to run a secret. I mean, really; if people got word of it, and tried to find me at my favorite running spots, they would have been sorely disappointed. I never even made it out the door.
Around 4 pm, a corporate-wide email went out to all employees. My voicemail light came on at the same time.
Fortunately, the announcement was good news. You can’t be sure these days, and with my last company having layoffs two years in a row, I’m a little leery. Instead of getting our pink slips, everyone was invited to a celebration. So, there was no running after work for me. Like the good employee that I am, I made my dutiful appearance at the gathering.
It’s just as well. I haven’t been feeling all that energetic since last week’s headache. I have been both emotionally and physically strained this week. Another day of running might have pushed me right over the edge.
