Getting Back into the Swing of Things

Really short recovery run this morning. It's cold out! I felt pretty good. A little labored but I guess that is to be expected after the beating I gave my legs at Chicago.

Got screamed at by someone in a car (I was on the sidewalk). What possesses people to do that? It scared the living hell out of me and then I can't get my mind back to a good place for far too long. I try not to let that bother me but it does. I mean seriously, do they think they are being original? That runners have never been yelled at before? That what they just did was something quite extraordinary?

At least he didn't yell "Run Forrest Run."

I hate being startled when I'm running well and zoned out. And it's usually by *ickheads and that have no reason to do so other than they think it's funny.

idiots.

I get "run forest run" at least once every other month. But then I think I look like him too.

i usually get out of my head when cars slowly roll through stop signs and don't at all look for pedestrians and hence there cane be close calls with my legs and their bumpers. :-)

I hate that too! It takes me a good 20 minutes to get it out of my head. I think I stress about that kind of stuff too much!

That's one reason why I like trail runs. The trees don't scream at you.

those are the people who deserve rocks thrown at their cars.

I have the same questions but none of the answers.

I tried yelling at cars randomly, but they never hear me and I still don't understand the attraction of doing it.

Let 'em scream all they want. They don't know what they're missing. Only we runners know :)
