Contemplatives of a distance runner

Mile 1: Man. Running rocks. I feel better already.

I could run forEVER.

I should totally sign up for a marathon. I could totally run one. I mean, it’s only like 26 miles. Which is like 4 1/2 hours of exercise. I could probably do that.


Ooooh. What kind of bird is that?

Hey stupid car, runner trying not to die here!

Sweet! Nice pace. Gotta be careful not to come out too fast though.

Mile 2: Alright! Now we are going. I’m finally starting to warm up. Gotta nod at the nice runner coming up.

Hi nice runner. Isn’t it great that we are all sweaty?

Hmmm. That runner wasn’t looking so friendly. Maybe she didn’t see me.

Yeah, cuz’ I’m like hard to miss or something.

Mile 3: Sweet! A hill. I’m gonna kill it!

You know you are a distance runner when it takes 3 miles to feel warmed up.

Holy hill, batman.

I should totally make all these thoughts a blog post. It would be awesome. Just like running.

Why doesn’t everyone run?

Ok, this is getting steep. Stupid hill.

Mile 4: Hills suck. Running is hard.

That’s a cute puppy.

Oooh another runner. I wonder if this one is friendly.

Yup! Hi other runner. Aren’t we awesome?

Over half way done. Yeah, baby!

Mile 5: Just keep swimming, just keep swimming.

Oooh. Swimming sounds nice. All that water. Oh water. I’m totally taking a shower in the hose when I get home.

I miss water. There is not enough water in all the world.

Running is hard.

Why do I do this all the time? It’s kind of weird if you think about it. I could drive this in like 5 minutes.

Crap, there’s a runner coming at me. I really don’t feel like smiling. I’m not happy enough to smile. I’ll just nod my sweaty head at her.

Wow. She was happy. I bet she just got started.


Mile 6: Almost there. Thank heavens. Man, I’m so glad this is all I’m running today.

Why do people run Marathons? That is like crazy stupid far! I mean on Saturday, I have to run half a marathon for my long run, which is also crazy stupid far.

Can you imagine running for like 3 more hours than this? Holy crap. That’s just craziness.

Home: Phew! I’m glad that’s done.

Wow! Look at my pace. I’m a freaking rock star! Running is awesome. I could totally run a Marathon.
