I wanted to share some random
rants thoughts I've had while running lately. As you all know, I live on a beautiful small Island in the middle of the Pacific, and I even go out of my way to run a somewhat secluded route; however, it seems my little Island has the some big city issues!
|No, really--you are!|
People really need to slow down! I'll be the first to admit I used to be a speed-demon; however, I have slowed down so much with age, it really irks me now when people speed--especially on an island--where yah gonna go?! Even people sporting these stickers need to wise up! We have ONE ROAD here on Maui--ONE! Mostly two-lanes, four in some spots, and our speed limit is never over 50mph, and that's in maybe one spot. Also, if you happen to pass someone, you WILL see them at the next stop. They probably won't like you, either.
So far, during every.single.run (I've only been running outside since I've been back), at least one speeding car whizzes past me so fast I feel the draft! I swear I'm not one of those annoying athletes who take up half the road, either! Did I mention I go out of my way to run in a somewhat secluded area? People should especially be going slow where I run. Ridiculous. One of my childhood friend's Dad recently passed away because he was hit by a car while riding his bike, and I literally fear for my life when I go running now!
Speaking of cars whizzing by...
|Change your oil dude!|
Speaking of nasty smells...
|Your habit -- not mine!|
Speaking of PR's...
|Running in the Rain|
I'm really starting to think of myself as a running diva. In fact, I completely labeled myself that on my last run, which led me to research my new term, only to discover the real Running Diva's website! How awesome is their company name AND their merch? I want!
All I want to do is continue living a fun, active, outdoor lifestyle, and embrace running--my labor of love--to maintain optimum health! Is that too much to ask? I've been making an effort to run outside, and I swear everything is going against my best efforts! Perhaps I really am a gym rat.
