Day 604-605 Leading the parade
11:45pm and I haven't run yet. Seriously. How many times am I going to do this? I need data plotting the actual times of my runs. The vast majority have occurred after 8pm, and I think probably thirty-forty have been after 11pm. This all originally started way back when I started this running thing. I was absolutely fed up with being soooooooo out of shape. So one day I got up off the couch, set down the Mountain Dew I.V. and started walking up and down the stairs in our house. I just went up and down the stairs like fifty times. My family thought I had lost my mind. It was a near death experience. So the next day I picked something else. I decided to run. I knew however that this experience might be a little bit less than aesthetically pleasing to those unfortunate enough to catch a glimpse of it, plus I was planning to live next to these neighbors long term, (who we actually talk to) so I decided I didn't really want to share the image of me waddling with them. Solution? Black hat, black sweatpants, black sweatshirt, black gloves; run at 10:30 pm. I figured I might get picked up for burglary, (Which almost happened, though I'm not sure I ever blogged about it, go figure.) but I thought that if I was stealthy enough, no one could stop and laugh.
Things are much different now. I have run during the daylight. I have run on crowded streets. I have even run shirtless (admittedly it was well after dusk, though there was just a trickle of light coming over Pike's Peak and someone MAY have seen me.) I am sharing my running with the world. You're so welcome, world! At least when I don't procrastinate until the last possible second.
