This was the hardest week. I know, “wah wah wah!” Well, it was. I’m getting sick of hearing my story. So, I went for a long run today and decided to run away from my troubles. I have an ad from adidas in my house on my running bulletin board that says, ” the longer I run, the further away my troubles become.” That was definitely me today.
I did about 13 miles. Then, had to go teach yoga to 4 year olds. Barely had time to do my lobster pot cold treatment ( see prior post on that!) and eat some protein, but it was worth it. There’s nothing like working with kids to get you inspired.
I passed some fast, serious runners today. You want to see them? Go out and run along the Charles in Boston on Saturday mornings. Get out there before 9 am. It’s crazy. These are some fast people.
I passed a guy today who was running with a friend. He waved and said “Good morning!” I returned the greeting and I immediately heard him go, “YES!” Apparently, he and his friend must have had some kind of bet going to see who would respond in kind. I’ve noticed it’s very inconsistent how regularly I get greeted by a passing runner, or get a wave or a head nod. I also notice I do it inconsistently. What’s up with that? I always feel like if you are giving everyone the wave or whatever, you’ll spend the whole run greeting people! But it is nice to say hello. It makes you feel like you’re not alone out there.
I tried vanilla GU today. Must say, I’d rather eat a tube of frosting. We’ll have to work on that.
Have a super night. I’m going to rest my legs.
