Sorry it's been a few days. No worries...I have been running....and not barfing all over myself. I'm just having some problems with my hip....aka can't walk. I've managed to get my runs in though. Here is the latest one:
I'm going to take it easy this week since my race is Saturday. Just do some 2-4 mile runs...and rest up. My first test of the quarter is on Friday so I will also be doing LOTSA studying! I had sort of a boring weekend...not much to recap. I did TONS of shopping. Check out Old Navy and Gap...HUGE sales! Also...I couldn't get my nike ipod thing to sync up with my computer. I ended up reformatting my hard drive....hahahahaha...just to get my runs uploaded! The things I go through for you guys!! (and my own addictions of course). I've got something really exciting coming up...some of you know about (Benson :) some of you don't. But stay tuned...I will keep you updated!
Also I thought I was blog about some of the "characters" I see at the running park I go to. I feel like they all fall into one of these categories:
Kenyan runner guy: This is the guy that is running circles around you (no wait...I actually kept up with him for 10 miles somehow). But either way...looks like they could win a marathon.
Waddle walkers: I think that explanation is good enough...I'm not talkin about your average walkers...these people are extreme..but give them lots of credit
Hot Mammas: These are the Moms that want to look good...so they are running/joggin/walking with the stroller and kids/dogs spilling out everywhere. Give them tons of credit. If you are dying...they probably have a cracker and some sippy juice (keep that in mind)
Snoop dog guy: This guy SCARES me! He sits on the park bench...lookin like snoop dogg... and then I swear he tries to time it so that he rides his bike past me when I am all by myself on the other side of the lake. And each time I start speeding up bc I'm deathly afraid of the snoop dogg maneuvers he might pull on me. Yeah...if you see this type of character at your running park..you will be sure to end with a FAST pace! Promise!
Seagull feeders: These are the worste. These people think it's super cool to feed the seagulls moldy bread so that 1092834 seagulls take large craps on the runners heads. DRIVES me NUTS!
And then theres me......just minding my own business...cruisin along to some tunes. To them..I probably look like the CRAZY person...running 10 miles. It's all perspectives I tell ya!
