reflections on a run

went on greenbelt run alone last night. thought about taking cooped up hotel dog along. selfish runner inside said nope. it's business, not personal. can't have anything holding me back. got to the greenbelt with a coolish (okay, less muggy--this is texas after all) breeze. feeling like my own personal chariot of fire. until about 1/4 of the way it started to sprinkle. karma for leaving hotel dog behind. shake off the sprinkle. i am wearing my new waterproof mascara. life is good. enjoy. realize i am truly a mizuno girl after running previously in my asics. question commitment to 7/1 run/walk intervals. consider moving backwards to 5/1. flash of michael corleone saying just when i thought i was out, they pull me back in. crave a cannoli. garmin acts flaky because of clouds. got the mojo going now. round the curve as rain intensifies. immediately dismiss mojo. make a dash to the car. drive back to hotel. cooped up hotel dog says i'm gonna make you an offer you can't refuse. honest.


  1. LOL!!!!

    Poor Sadie! Poor Holly!

    Gotta love your thought process AND the waterproof mascara (Hee Hee!)

  2. Good job wearing the waterproof mascara. I can't believe we're still dealing with the rain. Great post! I'm with you on the dog. Mine has gotten so used to me taking him on late walks with my sister he now refuses to go to bed unless he's been walked. I guess I need to make it a habit now.

  3. Call me if you want and I can go to the greenbelt with you! I'm better company than Sadie! HA

    I need some waterproof mascara! what brand do you use?

    See you in the morning.

  4. Oh, you are too funny. I think you captured just perfectly how a woman's train of thought goes from one thing to the next. LOVED this post. May steal the idea from you down the line...

  5. the train of thoughts when on a walk or run are really....funny aren't they!

    I tagged you in another game, if you want to play along.

  6. Seriously, I wish there was a way to record "the running train", as I like to call it. Mine was so weird and so random today. But, I kind of like it. I think about things running that I don't think I would otherwise.

  7. hahaha - this was funny. "dismiss mojo" :)

    How's hotel life? Hope all is well.
