Sometimes when I run I think about dancing sugar molecules in the form of cookies making their way into my mouth. Actually let’s keep it real, the only time I’m not thinking about food while running is when I’ve eaten too much before the run, and I have to distract myself with other thoughts to prevent myself from stopping.
I haven’t been running as much as I’d like the last few weeks, and my clothes have let me know it’s time to put down the fork and put on my Garmin. While on a run the other day (one I had eaten enough pumpkin and beans beforehand to fuel a small village) I had empty brain space to think about things other than cookies.
1. “There are three of you, and one of me..I would love if you shared this sidewalk. Then again, you are all around age 12 and haven’t grown into your naturally occurring hormones known as “manners.” It’s OK, but not really…MOVE or I will hit you.”
2. “Oh man, the yellow light is flashing. I’d better slow down, I don’t want to get a ticket.”
3. “I wonder if I’ll ever have to use my MACE.”
4. “I feel like a busted can of biscuits. Too many chips.”
5. Meghan. <—-Post inspiration right there.
6. “The seasonal Clif Bar I ate yesterday was as soft as my under-run midsection. Usually I’m putting my jaw through the wringer to eat one of those.” I love this flavor, makes me warm and fuzzy inside like swallowing a caterpillar.
7. “I’m going to blog about this. I’ll call it running thoughts.”
8. “Oh look, a chubby kid with a cupcake. I wonder if he would share that with me. Doubtful, chubby kids don’t share. I speak from experience.”
9. “I feel haggard, but those guys just whistled. They must have been warning traffic a train was coming. And by train I mean me.”
10. “That run was at a quicker pace than I thought…hmm…GIVE ME CAKE!”
Blogging Thoughts: This post was way cooler in my head.
Q: What do you think about when you have open brain space?
