Oh me! Oh my!

I ran.

I went for a run.

I chose to go somewhere for the sole purpose of running.

I wasn't trying to get from A to B.

I wasn't in a hurry.

It was just for fun.



I'm expecting further signs of the apocalypse shortly.


I went to the Crofton Downs entrance to Otari/Wilton's Bush and jogged and walked along the river. It was pleasantly cool and shady and the bush was beautiful. I saw a kingfisher, several tuis and was pooed on by a wood pigeon.

Before I do it again I want to make some modifications to my clothing. I wore my green sports fabric t-shirt which says "RUN" on the front (when I bought it it was the only choice that fitted and was a pretty colour). I'm planning to add a "T" before and "DLE" after so I do not feel intimidated by my shirt and cannot be accused of false advertising. My shorts kept falling down so it'll be some new elastic for them. Also my bra kept falling off my shoulders, at frisbee I wear a bra that gives less support and a skins compression top which gives lots but part of my plan with running is to wear clothes that aren't my frisbee clothes.

Here are some who like to run. They run for fun in the hot, hot sun. Oh me! Oh my! Oh me! Oh my! What a lot of funny things go by.

Wow, you even managed to make running sound like something to do for fun. I'm impressed.

I hadn't considered running in the bush. Oddly enough, that idea is fairly appealing. I might try it sometime. :)

apocalypse and Dr. Seuss in the same post ... heh!

I congratulate you on the above achievement and the run!

Trundle! Of course! What a good modification for the shirt. Though you might be accused of false advertising. Housemonkey was saying you're getting noticeably faster.

I skimmed this quickly and initially thought the t would go after the run which amused me...

YAY you! I am way impressed! (I miss exercise for the sake of it more than almost anything else about not being a single mum) That is one of my favourite pushchairable walks!!!
