As i was running yesterday i ran past someone who was walking home from class. when i reached them they looked up and said, "good job". i wondered why. i was after all running down hill. after a few minutes it occurred to me that i was the only person running.

i have been running three times, including yesterday, when there hasn't been anyone else running. the first was a day it rained and we had a home football game. the second was during a windy snowstorm when the temp was in single digits and then yesterday during a cold rain/sleet. i also had a neighbor say i must be pretty intense to run in this weather. when i got home i told josh and his response was, "what should you do, take the day off?"

it is just funny because i have tried to get people in the ward to run with me but they wont go because i am to "intense". the thing is i don't go fast. to them i am intense because i run every other. i always chuckle when they tell me this because i know exactly how relaxed i am compared to most runners.

I have the same problem - being that people won't run with me because they think I'm to intense about it because we've run in races. I tell them I'm not fast at all - it's just that I keep going and finish but I'm still lumped into the "wierdo" group. Dad and I were talking about it yesterday. He said we are in the elite class merely because we run and could finish a marathon if we walked out the door today- I'm not so sure but his numbers were convincing. I just don't feel that intense about it- they should go to a race and see the really intense people...liek Mr Fancy Pants.

I could probably use some more intensity in my life. Might cut down on my body fat numbers.

Lovely, lovely, lovely. And yes, we are all intense, just not very fast and we enjoy the stress relief after finishing running. All of our spouses should be grateful that we run. Think how impossible it would be to live with us if we did not run!
