Next up, I saw a young sailor who tells me that he has done Tough Mudder not once, but twice. It was so fun, he says. I
I haven't seen my old coworker in a few months and he stopped by the clinic to say hi. It was nice to catch up and of course talk about running. Running was one of the main topics between us and our patients. It was a nice common ground that just about everyone could get in on, whether they run or not. Shortly after that, a former patient who was looking for some training advice came in. He is now working part time at our local Fleet Feet. So of course, more.running.talk. Fleet Feet just opened here, I have been meaning to go there and drop off some info about Moms RUN This Town. He said that they actually have have a table with where they will display my MRTT stuff...looks like this:
|Minus the washing machines and add-in jog strollers and women running in all their mommy glory!|
At this point I was so pumped with all this running talk I thought the six miles I had scheduled would fly by but, I only had 2 in me. I think I mentally already ran 6. All that running talk can be exhausting. Really, I am still tired and a little sore from my 12 miles two days ago...I must be the OLD I suffer from. I just don't recover well. I think my nutrition is lacking....probably all the Diet Coke and chocolate I like to indulge in. Anyway, I plan to make up for it tomorrow.
But it doesn't end there. I meet up with a rep from Mountain Buggy and she did a jog stroller demo for our local MRTT chapter members. (I'll be doing review in the next few days).
And...to put the cherry on top...I have inspired my sister-in-law and sister to run a mud run! So excited for them. I hope they love it as much as I do. I wish I could run it with them, but I will be doing the Mudder that same day.
Do you love to talk running?
Do you find yourself in social situations with non-runners and try desperately to not talk about running, eventhough you really want to relate the topic back to your morning run and the stomach trouble you had with GU? (Not that I do that or anything, just wondering if you do.)
Happy Running :)
