You Stopped Me Mid-Run for THIS?!
The other day I was scrolling through Instagram and saw this:
That’s pretty on point, but I made my own version with a few modifications:
Just a little Friday fun :).
Last night was one of those nights where everything really clicked. At first my right calf felt a little tight and I was worried that I was in for a bad run. Luckily after the first mile it really loosened up and I was able to relax and hit cruise control.
Then SMACK in the middle of the run a man waves me down. I tried to ignore him at first but he stepped into my path to stop me and he was waving his hands. I hit pause on my Garmin and took out one earbud to find out what was going on.
He says, “Where did you get your sweatproof radio?”
Me: “Oh this?” pointing to my Armpocket, “it’s an armband.”
Him: “But where did you get the radio?”
Me: “Well, it’s just my phone inside the armband.”
Him: “Ah, it’s your phone. Okay, where did you get the armband?”
Me: “Armpocket.com but you could get one at Target or anywhere really.”
Him: “Okay thanks.” and he walks away.
UGH UGH UGH UGH UGH.
I know a non-runner probably doesn’t understand how annoying it is to get stopped for that kind of conversation – but I know you understand! That totally took me out of the zone, broke my stride and annoyed the heck out of me. Like yesterday’s quote said, I don’t have time to be friendly when I’m working out! ??
Oh well. After that I had zero interruptions, finished my run feeling amazing and even had time to sit and stretch by the water. My favorite way to end the day.
^ Repping my city!
Even though it’s getting very warm out I feel like I’ve pretty much acclimated to it now, as much as I’m going to anyway. When I got home I made an ice cold smoothie with frozen fruit and called it a day!
Has anyone ever flagged you down or stopped you mid-run?
What combinations do you like for your smoothies?
