Yesterday, I ran a 10K. It took me over an hour to run 6 miles, which is about normal for me. Sorry folks, I'm not a speedy runner. To pass the time during the race, I had many entertaining thoughts. Here are my Redbud Running Thoughts...
I sure hope Sister #1 was smart enough to follow the mass of people running the 5K.
(A few years ago she got lost in a race. No joke)
Dang it lady! Don't stop right in front of me. Geez why are you even up in the front? If you are going to walk GET YOUR BUTT IN THE BACK! Why is this so hard for people? Really why!
I think she was in some of my MBA classes. What is her name? Kristen? No that's not it.
I ran my first mile in 8 minutes. OK Chick, that is way too fast. You better slow down or you will be sucking air at mile 4.
BEEP, BEEP, BEEP....running enemy at 2:00. Pass her, pass her, pass her. Gotta her.
Who made this awesome playlist? Oh, I believe you did OK Chick.
Holy cat fight what is that lady wearing! Orange top with neon green paid shorts. HAHA she looks goofy.
Dang it! Running enemy is back, Where did she come from? Pass her, pass her, pass her!
Is there a new water stop? Why is everyone moving to the right side of the road? There are sprinkles!!! PRAISE JESUS!!! Oh that felt good. Lord, I would like to give a shout out to that family!
Sing with me now...we want pre-nup. WE WANT PRE-NUP!, yeah
I wonder if they will have yogurt at the finish line?
What in the world is this chick's tattoo? Is that roses? Yup, those are roses. What's the stuff on her shoulder? Dang it, she ran off.
Did she just give me the challenge look? Listen hot pink tank top woman, I will take you down. I know I'm walking but I'm a fast walker. Look at these legs! You want to race? Ok, let's go.
Oh, so you are one of those walkers. The mall walkers. Fine, I'll let you win this time.
Tattoo girl is back. Ok, so we have roses, possibly stars, and what is on the shoulder? A cat? What the crap?
SHUT UP...more sprinklers!
Sweetheart, I need more than half a cup of Powerade. Come on! It's 80 degrees out here. Really? I only get half a cup. I hate you!
I think I'll have scrambled eggs for dinner. Yup eggs with some Laughing Cow Cheese.
Almost done. Last water stop. Oh honey, I'm getting 2 waters. The last water stop cheated me out of Powerade.
I see running enemy up ahead. I wonder if I could catch up to her. Nah, I'm ok.
I see the finish line. I see my family!!! YEAH water awaits me. Another race under my belt.
