Running confessions

The only two things I seem to do lately are work and run. OK, so I sleep a little and do some reading.  But I feel like my life is pretty consumed with my job and my half-marathon training. Since I hesitate to write much about work in this space, I've decided to center this week's confessions on running.

Vodka and Soda


I cannot tell you how many walnuts I've almost stepped on this year.
Those suckers need to go away before I roll an ankle or faceplant on the trail.

When I see someone attractive, I pick up the pace a little.

++++

I talk to almost every living thing that crosses my path.
This includes not just humans but deer, squirrels, and birds.
I'm just practicing for when I'm a Disney princess. 

++++

I think I'm doing great until I see someone running faster.
Sigh.

++++

Sometimes I smell skunk ... but worry that I'm actually smelling myself.
Ew.

As much as I hate the treadmill, it has taught me to pick up my feet when I run.
Dragging your feet on the treadmill is a bad idea.

What do you have to confess this week?

  2. I really want to be a runner but I've just never been able to do it but an attractive guy would definitely motivate me lol

  3. There's only ever been one dude in front of me on my runs. He was going too fast for me to keep up.. and he wasn't that hot. :(

    I talk to everything too! I also name my inanimate belongings. #notevensorry #disneyprincessintraining (i made that 2nd one up just for us).

  5. I ALWAYS pick up the pace when I see someone coming towards me. ANd even if I was planning on stopping, I won't until they've passed me. Can't let them see me stop!

  6. I, too, run faster in the vicinity of more attractive people. I also make my ponytail bob harder, so it probably really looks like I'm having a weird stroke or something.
