I went for a run and.......

This morning I put a great inspirational quote on my facebook status. Next thing I know my stinker friends and sister start giving me crap...all in good fun of course. So anyway, I'm at the gym running on the treadmill and I'm not really sure how far I was going to run, probably five or six miles. This is how my run went, and I thought I'd jot down my thought process so my posterity can see what a nut their mom is.

"Mile six: Well, I feel pretty good I'll just run a little more til I'm really tired.......(mile 7).....you know I really hate ending on odd numbers.......I don't know why it's just annoying so I'll run till mile 8....... (mile 8).....you know that would be funny to comment on my fb that I ran 3 5k's, ha ha, I might as well run to 9.3....(mile 9).....I'm this close to double digits and I probably won't run this far again for a while so I might as well run 10 since I'm close....(got distracted watching the news and went 1/2 mile further)....(mile 10.5)....oh great now I'm past 10 so what do I run to now?....thinking....thinking....huh, a 1/2 a marathon is only a few miles away I should do that, I haven't done that since I trained for a marathon years ago......okay cool....I'm going to run a half a marathon on a treadmill......(mile 11).....great my knees are starting to hurt......(mile 11.5)...oh great my water bottle ran out.....I need water.....hmmm.....I wonder if I chuck my water bottle at one of the trainers and smack them in the head with it they will realize I need some water and get me some......(mile 12)....okay only 1.1 to go, I bet Travis is thinking I died somewhere in the snow since I'm gone a lot longer than I told him I would be.....oh well....(mile 12.5).....playlist starting over, lovely, I'm sick of these songs I need some new tunes.....(mile 12.75)....girl next to me that has been on the treadmill for exactly half of a mile keeps looking over at my treadmill stats....knock it off girl....mind your own beeswax...(my treadmill had started over because you can only run up to 99 minutes then it starts to cool you down so you have to start it over, I think since my treadmill was only showing a couple of miles and I was dripping sweat and my tank was drenched in sweat she was wondering what my problem was....I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM treadmill stat watcher!).....finally mile marker 13.1! Wahoo!.......my first half on a treadmill.....where is the finish line? Where is my t-shirt?...oh well....I guess I'll go home now.....I might regret this tomorrow.....but probably more like Wednesday."

I enjoyed the FB banter but to read what goes on in your head while running is priceless! You and I think a lot alike - but NOT on a treadmill. Way to go the distance!
