Here are a few things that I have been thinking about lately while running:
-I think it is normal while running to plan out exactly what you are going to eat the second you get home… Right? Or is that just me?
-It will always be interesting to me that one day it feels like you are running on clouds with rainbows and then the next like your legs are tree trunks trying to run through mud. You never know what you are going to get but that sure keeps things exciting.
– Why does it drive us so crazy to stop on anything but right on the mile or the .5 mile? You have to admit, stopping at 4.64 miles or something like that is hard to do—> I’ve got to make it 4.5 or 5.
-Thank goodness running clothes and shoes have gotten so much more functional and cuter over the years. Remember how boring they were 10+ years ago?
-I R.E.A.L.L.Y want a dog to run with.
-Why could I care less if hair is touching my face throughout the day but when I am running I can’t handle even a strand touching my face?
-I have all 10 toenails and 0 injuries this marathon training cycle. Praise the heavens.
-I find it interesting that eating while running at the same time is kind of the worst. The one time (during a long run or race) that I really should be ingesting pure glucose/sugar for fuel is the one time that it doesn’t sound good. Yet when I am not running, straight glucose always tastes and sounds good.
-Why does my nose always run a bit no matter what temperature it is when I run outside but it never does when I run on the treadmill… must be the wind or something?!
-At my last half marathon I saw a group of junior high kids running the race and it made me wonder at what age is it too young to be running distance races?
Our trip to the park yesterday proved that I have zero upper body strength—> I couldn’t make it past the first ring. My niece rocked it though.
I had a fun date last night and it started with chips and salsa. I could drink this salsa and once upon a time I worked at this restaurant (Los Hermanos) and I am pretty sure I did drink it a time or two.
Fajitas for the main course. I will never ever ever get sick of Mexican food.
Followed up by some intense bowling. Two things about the below picture: 1. It was glow in the dark bowling. 2. My very first frame of the night was a strike.
I sure hope sore forearms won’t affect my running negatively. Three games last night and my right arm was dead.
And for my random exciting news for me and Brookers——> We are house hunting! My mom and sister have been accompanying us and it has been a blast. I want to research every little ounce of this process to make sure I make the best decision so it will probably take awhile. It is pretty much all I think about lately. Oh, and we will finally be able to get a dog. Maybe one that can run with me too:)
Worked at any restaurants before? Which ones?
Cuisine or a restaurant that you will never get sick of?
Something about running that you have been thinking about while out on your runs?
Do you have to stop right on the mile or .5 mile? Or does it not bother you to stop on a random number?
