Running Thoughts

This morning I went running, which means more Running Thoughts for your entertainment….

Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep. What in the world is that awful noise? Oh man, it’s time to get up. I don’t want to get up. Ahhh I hate running. No I don’t, I’m excited to get up. Now left leg, swing off the bed.

62 degrees. Alright, it’s shorts weather.

What in the world happen to my legs? Didn’t my legs used to have lots of muscle? Where’s my muscle?

LORD, could you give me a break! It’s 5:15am and the wind is knocking me over. Couldn’t you calm the wind until I’m done running? I realize it’s not a life or death thing, but I’m making a real effort to train for the half marathon.

If it’s this windy when I run the half I’m going to be very angry. I might say 13 cuss words-one per mile. Nope, make that 26- two per mile.

I had no idea U2 was still on my iPod. It’s a beautiful dayyyyy…

I don’t want to go to work today. I need a day off. Oh, I wish I was British so I could say I needed a holiday. It sounds so much better.

I think for breakfast I’ll eat oatmeal with raisins, cinnamon, sugar, and honey. MMMM that sounds good.

What’s that man doing around their cars? Why does he have a sack? Is he wearing jeans? What if the guy has a gun? Oh no, I’m going to die. I’m going to be mugged in my own neighborhood and no one will discover me for another few hours. You know, if you can’t be safe in your own neighborhood, then where can you be safe? Is he breaking into the cars? He saw me!!! Pick up your pace, you’re almost home. If you make it to the garage you can put the door down. Hurry, hurry...he’s walking towards you. I’m going to die. There’s so much I haven’t accomplished. This can't be the end. Blogger World, you should feel special. I was thinking of you during this.
Wait, is that man old? WHAT the crap is he doing? Why is he bending down? Oh, it’s just my neighbor picking up trash.
Good morning Mr. Neighbor.

LOL! Glad you had a good run.

I hate the wind too. I think my life would be so much better if I could just live where it isn't windy.

Me too! I'm so tired from my run. I'm in slow today.

Love it! I'm like the park nazi when I go running. Someone pulls up in the parking lot and just sits in their car, I'm like, "What are you doing, freak? You can't just sit in your car like some psycho. This is MY park."

I keep my eye on them the whole time. Well, at least until I get on the other side of the track and can't see them.

Man, you and Bone are really keeping Mr. Rogers in my thoughts this week.
