Quilting...No, Running...No, Quilting

So, I have been quilting on this quilt for 2 days now.  The lovely little sea turtles and coral design that I chose is down right time consuming though they have come out beautifully!  So, I am quilting along, just about 2 more rows left, when I get this sudden and powerful erg  to RUN.  What?  Where did that come from?  Yes, I have been training for a 5K but am no where near being ready for it and the last time I ran, I thought my son was going to have to DRAG me!  So, why am I getting the erg to run while working on a quilt that must be completed ASAP?  Well, that's just it.  I have been quilting on it for 2 days and the draw to do something different is probably where the desire to run came from since there was no way I was going to allow my subconscious to lure me away to another quilting project. 
But, I fought the erg, all the while hoping it would not leave me, and it hasn't.
I have finished the quilting.  Now I shall eat lunch and then attend to the need to go running.  I will allow myself that small break before I get back to the machine to get the binding on this baby!  I have told the customer that she can pick up this quilt on Sunday.  That means some hard core binding sessions ahead of me in the next two days!  Fingers prepare!
