As you can see, I have my new ear buds in. You will find me plugged in on most days and for most of the day. I know some people may find that annoying, but I do it on purpose most of time. It helps me to be less distracted from the constant traffic in my office. Also people are less likely to try to stop and talk to me when I’m trying to get somewhere. That may sound anti-social, but it really isn’t. I am highly social and sometimes that can be a problem. 🙂
Finally I decided to venture forth and run outside. I have been asked why I only run on the treadmill. Well mostly from fear. I don’t like to be watched. I know that sounds crazy, but it is true. The watchers here are not ordinary watchers, they are lurkers. I hate that. Yesterday, I decided to chuck that fear and get out there. I was not bad at all.
This gives you an idea of what running outside is for me. I can only go in a circle. I am not complaining. It took 17 loops to make 3+ miles. I may go out again tonight. At least I got out of the fear of running in front of a gazillion lurkers. 🙂 The pictures were taken in the morning daylight, but it was dark when I ran.
My legs are really feeling a bit sore today. I think it’s because of running on the concrete. I need to get use to it anyway. I really need to run longer. Wish me luck. Time is a tickin on the 1/2 marathon clock. No complaints here. 🙂
