As I was running last night my mind worked through the expected waves of sporadic thought. One second contemplating the menu for Thanksgiving dinner and the next reminding myself of something to do at the office in the morning. My mind loves these waves, it's me... a prolific multitasker or, more likely, a sufferer of adult onset ADD. Part of this process includes a game where I come up with sponsors for the miles I'm running. Now there's no marketing genius at work here, it's more stream of consciousness. And thus my sponsors include weather conditions, music, interesting folks or animals I might encounter, physical scenes from the run and from time to time, other runners - the quirkier the better ...I'm talking to you, Mr. YeahIRockAMembersOnlyJacketWhenRunning. It gives my mind something to do, makes it feel useful and it totally entertains me. Have I mentioned that I'm freakin' heeeelarious and witty to no end in my own mind? Well, I am. :-)
And it appears to run in the family... from baby sis & dog niece yesterday morning: [Monika] went on her run this morning with Sadie, we pass another runner, she looks back while still running forward with me, and then....BAM! light post....that's my pup!
That reminds me, I'm due for a good wildlife report
Do you have games you play while running?
p.s. last night's run was sponsored by the new Girl Talk album, perfect blankets of leaves floating on the Hudson and a cool fall rain.
