I know, I've not posted in a while. But I've been meaning to get back into it, and I've got to start raising money again (see below) so I figured it was time.
That, and I was out with a a new-ish friend the other night and somewhere in our conversation she asked me "what do you think about while you are out there?" and I realized I didn't really have a good answer-- trust me, I don't know sounded pretty lame even to my ears--so, without further ado and probably in no particular order here are the things I thought about for varying periods of time on my run today.
OK, its 5. I have to be back by 7:30. Where can I go? I hope my back doesn't bother me and I can get a good run in. I really wish the gym were open today. Maybe I'll have time for a pushup ladder after the run. I love being out here when everyone else is asleep. Its so pretty and quiet.
Hope this doesn't re-injure my back. It feels so good right now, I'm probably going to pay for this later.
Can't believe that after 20 years, I didn't get a Falmouth Road Race Number and neither did Will. Can't believe we have to raise money for charity to get a number. Better get on that (don't worry, the requests are coming). How are we going to do that?
Remind Will he needs to take 10 shots today in his town game. I hope he does well in try-outs this week. How am I going to get him to try outs this week. 4:30 in Taunton is a pain in the ass. Who schedules this stuff.
Ugh- we have our work retreat Tuesday.
Maybe I should give up on "this". Am I pushing too hard? Am I not working hard enough? Sometimes I wish I knew what I was doing and if I'm doing the right thing.
Gee I wish my paddleboard was up here, It'd be great to be paddling around the lake instead of running it right now.
How am I going to finish this run, feed the kids, get the soccer fields set up and get Will and John out the door to his game by 8:30, Its 6:15 already, I'd better get moving. What? I"m running 10:15's? Yeah, I'm going to be late and nothing is going to get done and everyone is going to be late. Oh shit I'd better hurry up.
We need a new rec director. I wonder if I can talk S into doing it. How am I going to run this league next season with all the new age groups. Maybe we could. . .
It just feels good to be out here. I really like what they did with their garden. I should be weeding my front yard instead of running this morning. I should also be cleaning my house. When I get home I'll...
I hope S and K both enjoy their tri's today. I miss having all my tri folks around me. Maybe I should do another tri? Which one should I sign up for? I wonder if I can get John to let me do Wildflower next year. Isn't today Escape from Alcatraz-- that was always fun. I miss the sand ladder. Was so much fun always showing up at a start line and knowing people. One of the two things I miss about California.
What else do I need to get done before Jack's birthday party today. I can't believe Jackie is going to be 10. How did that happen? How am I 43?
What do I want to do when I grow up? I really need to figure that out so I can start doing it.
You know, someone asked me what I think about when I run, maybe I should do a post about that.
What? 12 miles already. . . Phew, I made it home on time. Now I can manage to face the day.
No time for that pushup ladder though.
