smelly dog donut? no. Those people are so boring and tight. I bet they went home and practiced algebra after a logging all of their miles in a composition book.

That is one thing i LOVE about running in Montana....nearly everyone (there are some jerks) smiles and sings "hello."

Well, I'm glad you're feeling uplifted, but you are in the WRONG SPORT. You say you never see runners smiling - why would they smile? They're working hard and having no fun. Try walking. You see the neighborhood, you rarely trip, and you DON'T SWEAT.
I walked the LA marathon a couple years ago. It took me awhile and I lost 2 toe nails, but could I run it? Never!

2007-07-13T09:16:00.000-07:00

Lera - I bet you'd say hi to me! Thanks for the badge of honor - it's on my list of to-blog topics :)

Jess - As are you on mine. Love that commercial. My laundry is NEVER that fun.

Sara - See - that's awesome. I'm going to start singing along, too. That oughta piss some people off.

AK - If it doesn't kick mine first,yes.

Sharon - I agree - I always feel better when I get home if I've been cheerful along the way. I have a thing for the neighborliness.

Meg - Perhaps we should start popping on on them in the bathroom window. I mean, then they'd have a reason for being such pills.

Kristen - WOOT! You know I started just trying to get through a 3 mile run without stopping to walk. I never thought I'd get past that point. Good thing AfricanKelli kept pushing me on. You're doing great!!

Tinkerblue - Don't think there's anyone out there more surprised than I that I can run 8 miles at all. That 10 minute pace has to be a fluke.

Christine - That IS a great article. Love! What is your blog? I can't get to it from your profile and I wanna read!

Wendy - I couldn't agree with you more. It's like smiling at your desk at work - you can't be working, you must be watching YouTube. NOT ALWAYS TRUE. Only sometimes.

Meanwhile, when I run, there is no YouTube, so it's all legit smiling.

2007-07-13T07:00:00.000-07:00

I think all those pissy runners come from a common misconception in our society. Too many people believe that if you look like you're enjoying something (like smiling and being friendly) that you can't possibly be working hard enough.

Sounds like you are, though.

2007-07-13T06:55:00.000-07:00

Seriously, you are SO hardcore. And that 10-minute/mile pace? Awesome. By the way, there is this great NYTimes article on how young, hip people are crafting their little hearts out these days. I blogged it, but you could also find it in the Fashion & Style section of nytimes.com.

2007-07-12T23:16:00.000-07:00

I'd smile. I might even say hello, if I could still breathe. But given that your running 10 minute miles, you'd be kicking dust in my 14 minute mile face.

2007-07-12T18:56:00.000-07:00

You go girl! I finally hit the 2.5 mile mark today for the first time in....years. I used to run cross country in high school and did pretty good I might add, and now I feel like a friggin slug. I'm starting towards a 5k and have some work ahead of me. Keep up the good work!



Yeah - work, girl! I love that. Let me tell you, p...

2007-07-12T15:51:00.000-07:00

Yeah - work, girl! I love that. Let me tell you, people are just as hardcore *walking* at the park. I feel somehow obligated to smile at everyone, and 99% of them look at me like I popped up to greet them in their bathroom window. Sor-ry! We live in a society, you know!

2007-07-12T15:42:00.000-07:00

When I walk or run (some time ago now for the running) I am like you - smiling and saying hi and yes people get kind of weird. I don't care and I don't think you should either. Sounds like you do better when you just are the way you are. Keep up the work

2007-07-12T15:09:00.000-07:00

You are working it girl, and you are doing so with a smile. I try not to let the other grumps slow me down. There are several runners who every single week i greet without a response. At this point, I do it just to see them squirm. Three cheers for friendly folk!

p.s. you are so going to kick the 1/2 marathon's ass.

2007-07-12T14:01:00.000-07:00

I would have definitely shot you the peace sign, and smiled about it afterward. Or maybe you would have caught me singing Missy's Work It!

Hey Finny thanks for your comment on the funny Italian commercial. I love your blog!!! You are going on my everyday reading list :)
