Some things will only be understood by runners. It's not a glamorous sport at times.
Mid tempo run situation:
Running partner Dan: gives a weird look.
Me: Ya, I had to lick the gel off my finger so when I go to wipe my snot later I don't get brown on my nose.
Dan: shrugs in agreement
Me: (thinking to myself) omg did I just do that and admit it??!
OH WELL! I provide entertainment I suppose. lol. But clearly, this is an issue we all face. Especially those like me who take 3 miles to down a gel.
I had another Cherry Chocolate Clif gel on my tempo today so I feel some random thoughts coming.
I have to give a shout out to my 7 year old daughter who stayed out late on a school night to run a Leap Year 2.9 mile race. Probably the only kid out there. I made sure she stayed away from the keg at awards time. Good job baby!
Ok, just one random...Have a good day friends!
