When you are running for over 3 hours, in our case 3:10:57, you have A LOT of time to think about things. I don't run with music so that means that I have to entertain myself in other ways, sometimes I get lucky and a song gets stuck in my head but that hasn't been happening lately. Probably because I'm not working this month so I am not in the car listening to the same five songs being played over and over on the radio.
Today I had a few thoughts while out for our run and I thought I would share them with you. I don't exactly remember when some of these thoughts occurred but they were sometime between 0-19 miles!
How could I have forgotten my watch? Good thing Mike is nice to me and keeps telling me the splits and miles.
I feel like we are going too fast.
See, we were going too fast.
Jeez, that car could have moved over a little bit more don't you think?!
Oh no, now I have to get my energy gel out. Hopefully I can open it.
This energy gel is definitely working, but now we are probably going too fast.
Yep, too fast!
I hate running over grates, it is one of the most annoying things ever.
I wonder how Crystal is doing in her half marathon?
I feel bad, but I need to stop. I don't know what is going on but I feel some major anxiety going on.
A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y and Z. Now I know my ABCs next time won't you sing with me?
There have been a lot of cyclists out today.
Why do I keep kicking my ankle with my other foot? I must be getting tired.
I wish I had my watch, but I'm kind of glad I don't have it.
Just get to that kid playing basketball.
Jeez, buddy do you really need to block the sidewalk? Oh, you are moving your car forward, how nice of you.
I need to stop again. Ugh, what is wrong with me?
Mike just said there is 1/4 of a mile left.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5...
YES!! WE'RE DONE!
Oh yes, I really do sing the alphabet to myself while running.
What do you think about while running?
