An unbidden thought, “Well good, now I can go back to using those teeth whitening strips.”

What the hell brain?

It reminds me of a moment when I was working full-time again after two years of reduced hours, after about six weeks of full time work I thought, “If I had fewer hours I’d cook more” which I had just spent years proving was NOT EVEN SORT OF TRUE.

So, post-marathon brain has a number of things to catch up.  Some of it is just adult rigor that I had been putting off in the weeks running (ha!) up to the marathon.  Some of it is a random assortment of things I can do “now”, none of which are *true* in any sense because I run before dawn and what I can do before dawn is limited to running and sleeping.  I can’t get up at 4:30 and read work related books.

Three days after the fact, my calves are still a little sore and honestly – I’m ready for a run except that I don’t know how my toenail will feel (I expect it will be bad) and I’m ready to get back at … something.

I just don’t know what.

Maybe whiter teeth.
