Thoughts About Life And Running

By character I’m an introvert. Grade school and senior high school parties? Didn’t attend and even forgot that there was one. Not for me. I have trouble approaching, presenting myself, and talking to people. That’s until I’m out running with them. What alcoholic beverages does to release other people’s tongues, running does if you ask me.

Running with others exhilarates me. I didn’t get a chance to blog about last week’s AREC training run. I guess I used to be too exhilarated to compose it. Besides, I got invited by my cousin to watch the Pacquiao/Bradley fight at her house therefore I was gone for most of the day. Anyway, it was a 7-mile run and I finally got a chance to talk briefly with one of the athletes from Train4autism.

  • Promotes high fiber foods
  • 7 ozs. smoked turkey or chicken breast sausage, chopped up diagonally
  • Do not utilize it Works! Ultimate Body Applicator or Wraps on damaged or damaged skin
  • 2 – measure ins from waistline, hip and upper arm areas

I asked her how the program proved helpful and she said she just signed up but hasn’t had the opportunity to raise any money yet. She even wasn’t sure what certain requirements were. I also surely got to talk to someone called Aileen who joined up with the 12 minutes per mile speed group and found out she does boot camp fitness training every Monday, Wednesday, or in addition to operating on those days and. Sounds like a difficult core fitness enthusiast to me. I ran with her until the three-mile tag so when the water was reached by us station there, I continued my very own ahead.

About a mile later I swept up with an old friend, Dona who was simply said to be pacing the ten minutes per mile group, there were only two of them however. Since I’ve prodigal my sense of pace, I’m not sure if they were really doing 10 minutes per mile anymore. Nevertheless it was nice to hold with them for the last three miles.

Dona’s friend was a young woman of Indian descent whose name escapes me now (I’m so poor at remembering names). I mistook her for just one of the Train4autism runners just because a baby was being worn by her blue shirt. It turns out she was a nurse who worked at UCLA Medical Center so we discussed nursing stuff.

So both of these women led me to complete the 7 miler, then I ran back about a hundred yards to get Aileen and bring her to the finish. Flash ahead to the week’s AREC run. We met at a different location close to a new running shoe store – Legacy Running Company relatively, which was about 4 miles from where I live. The owner was going to give some running footwear advice following the run that we’ve been doing each year but at a different store.

The run course was just a simple 2 loops round the park for the 6 milers and 2 ½ loops for the 8 milers (this was to reduce crossing way too many traffic lamps). So there it is. Pre-run and post-run, I’m mostly quiet as a dormouse, but once my legs get moving my lips start flapping. I might not be able to run just as much as before but I’m still in a position to run my mouth when I’m working.
