Some Thoughts . . .

Some thoughts that went through my mind as I ran Friday's 10.3 mile loop beneath the hot summer sun:

  1. All I have to do is make it up Mentally Sensitive, and then it's almost over (6.5 miles to go!)
  2. The whole loop is only ten miles, that's really just two five miles, and half of five miles is only 2.5 miles. I can run 2.5 miles!!
  3. Ahhh look at those lovely (poisonous flowers).
  4. It’s perfectly fine to HIKE Mentally Sensitive.
  5. Buck Up!
  6. Are those my tracks?
  7. Deer tracks!
  8. Deer scat!  Why always berries in deer scat?
  9. Poor dead beautiful blue lizard.
  10. Buck Up!
  11. An hour has already passed?
  12. Can. Not. Wait. Until. I. Reach. The. Top.
  13. Love, love, love the view. Smile
  14. Don’t look at the top.  Do. Not. Look.
  15. One step in front of the other.
  16. Buck Up!
  17. Lovely, lovely shade.
  18. Just one more hill and it’s all down hill from there. 
  19. Just 3 more miles.
  20. Just 2.5 more miles.
  21. Just 2.25 more miles
  22. Just 2.0 more miles.
  23. Just 1.75 more miles
  24. Just 1.50 more miles
  25. Just 1.25 more miles
  26. Just 1.0 more miles
  27. Just .75 more miles
  28. Just .50 more miles
  29. Just .25 more miles
  30. Awesome.  That wasn’t so bad now, wasn’t it?  I think I’m better for it!
