Sometimes when I have a really good run, one that I am really proud of, I want to tell the whole world.
Which isn’t always such a good idea. At best,
Chris someone will feign excitement for me. At worst, I sound like a running-obsessed weirdo. Ok, that’s partly true. Most often, as I blab on and on about my pace, splits, and the play by play of my run, I see the eyes of the person on the receiving end of the monologue glazing over.
The best solution to this problem would be to make running a little more like kindergarten.You had a good run today, you get a gold star, or better yet a golden winged foot. Instead of having to proclaim your awesomeness on a given day, everyone who sees you would be immediately aware of your running superiority for the day.
Chris would no longer have to endure me reading off the quarter mile splits from my latest 20 mile run. I could avoid the awkward conversations generated by oversharing running stats at work. Best of all, I am sure that it would intensify my feeling of awesome.
A win for everyone!
