Run Dumb

K and I ran this morning with Friend Lindsey. She is from Palm Springs. She is an Occupational Therapist. She is in love with a boy named Sam. Sam works for Murray city... he works on the up-keep of the parkway. We now have an in! (ok, other than you Mayor Dan, but you're the big guns, we save our favors until they're huge to come to you. no offense.) Kristin has this intricate plan that Murray city police officers as they patrol the parkway should randomly check for leashes and to ensure owners have a baggie on them. It's actually quite a hilarious plan.

Speaking of hilarious, I once read a question posed to the illustrious Jeff Galloway. The runner asked why after a longer run they felt like they couldn't think as quickly, got confused more easily. Jeff replied that becasue the brain's fuel is glucose, and that can be the first thing burned, at the end of a long run, you might not have adequate stores until eating. TRUER WORDS WERE NEVER SPOKEN! I'm here to tell you- During a long run, EVERYTHING is super, hilarious, funniest thing you ever heard. Also, do not make tomorrow's running plans then, because it results in embarrasing texts later in the day "...Uh, what time tomorrow again?" You also are physically incapable of ordering food at a restaurant. " What were my choices again? Hash browns or fries huh? Uh, uh, hmmm. let me think here." . It's not good, and your running partners will tease you about it FOREVER! We call it "run-dumb".

Good luck with your long runs tomorrow! And good luck choosing pancakes or french toast afterwards--- impossible.

That explains so much!! Now I can just blame my absent mindness on long runs.

Hey ladies! So, I did my 9.5 miles today.( I think I mixed something up and that's how I got ahead of he schedule. I don't need to go on long runs to experience absent-mindness and slow-thinking! :) Wow, I think I can actually run this half-marathon. I used GU and all that stuff as you guys recommended. I felt great! The only thing is that my knees are super sore. Sorry I couldn't run with you guys today. Life's been absolutely BUSY. I miss you!

Ha ha, it almost feels good when you're running dumb and fuzzy, doesn't it? Kinda dulls the pain and fatigue receptors.
