adventures in running

4 miles Downtown

I really wasn’t motivated to run again. And because I go with the walking group, no motivation to run is good and bad. It’s good because I’m with the walking group. I can actually just walk it. It’s bad because I’m not running.

Shins hurt for about the first mile and a half. They’re pretty sore now! I’ll be doing the alphabet with my feet in a few minutes to stretch out those muscles!

So, remember the lady from Thursday who just talked and made noise to be making noise ……. she came to the Downtown store tonight! UUURRRGGG!!!! She and I were in the back together for about the first half. I had my headphones in. I didn’t listen.

Then the second half, she started walking with someone a few feet in front of us and was content to walk there the rest of the evening. Whew!

That lady is a spaz!! The first few people (there were 6 of us in the group) crossed the street and then there was a city bus coming. I was in the back and didn’t worry that the bus would hit  me. I knew I’d make it across before he got to me. She TOOK OFF!!! She was seriously worried the bus wasn’t going to slow down and that it would hit her.

Also …. we passed some homeless people on our way out on our walk. When we got almost back to them, the coach took us a different way. She said she was glad we were going a different way, she didn’t want to get grabbed at. GOOD GRIEF! They didn’t say anything or even move when we went by the first time.

But, the 2nd half another lady was in the back with me. She’d eaten barbeque for lunch. Don’t do that on a run day!

I did pretty poorly on my time, but I did 4 miles instead of watching TV. That’s pretty good in my book!

Someone who was walking, either to her car or something, told me she liked my skirt! (= I LOVE my skirt! I need to hit KB up for a few more!!
