Runners are Thinkers - Random Running Thoughts

I had meant to do a Tasty Tuesday recipe today. But I was lazy over the weekend and didn't edit the photos. I was thinking about that on my morning run. I was thinking a lot actually. I'm certain that most runners tend to have a million and one thoughts flitting around during any given run. If you're like me, they come in spurts and rarely string together. SQUIRREL.

Just for fun, I thought I'd share some of the random, flitting thoughts from this morning.

  • How is it already 65 degrees, we didn't even make it to 65 degrees Thursday through Saturday. 
  • Thank goodness for the wind.
  • Ok, that's enough wind. 
  • I think I'll stick to 6 miles today. Definitely no more than 7. 
  • It might be a really pretty sunrise. Maybe I should have headed north first. 
  • I can't believe how light it is already. 
  • Why are there so many people out driving around at this ungodly hour? Shouldn't they be sleeping?
  • Only runners should be out this early. 
  • I hope there are cars coming at the next intersection. 
  • Ok, too many cars. Hurry it up already.
  • I'm defiantly not running around the Arts Center today. High five to that. 
  • Crud, I'm going to miss the sunrise I think. Should have gone north first.
  • Wait, gates, tents, what's going on. 
  • What do you mean I can't run through there, that's my route. That's MY route!
  • Stupid Riverfest. Why are they setting up already, it's only Tuesday.
  • Now I have to figure out another route. Which way can I go ... hmmm ... 
  • Oh look, other runners!
  • Ok, why do they keep digging up the streets? That makes it so hard to run on. 
  • I would run on the sidewalk if they were remotely decent, and now the street is all torn up. 
  • Man I need the wind. I should have brought water.
  • I hate carrying my water bottle.
  • I need to do weights at lunch. Yep, weights at lunch for sure.
  • What mile am I at. Man. I have to go around the Arts Center after all. Shoot.
  • Oh look, I hit mile 7 really close to the Little Rock Marathon Mile 7 Marker. That's kind of cool.
  • Guess I'll finish out to 8.
  • Ready to be done.
  • Hopefully I'll stop sweating.


  • But first, let me take a selfie.
