Thursday Thoughts (aka 3 Things)

After being couch-bound yesterday trying to shake this crud/cold thing, I managed 4 very windy miles this morning. As long as my energy level holds up, I’m heading to my favorite 2 hour torture, er I mean, yoga class tonight.

It’s interesting to me how many people don’t walk in a straight line. While on my run, I passed 4 different walkers and as I was coming up behind each of them it was funny to watch them veering a little to the left, then a little to the right, then back again. Made me wonder if I do the same?

Why do some women insist on dousing themselves in perfume? I passed a woman today who seriously had a perfume cloud around her – it was not a pretty thing to be caught in!

What have you encountered on your runs lately?


  1. I’m probably one of those weaving runners. When I run with friends, I’ve been known to bump into them. 🙂

    There’s a dad that drops off his kid to our preschool and then the hallway smells like cologne for an hour. At least it’s a decent one.

  2. Oh gosh getting around walkers who weave is such a pet peeve of mine! Many races in Chicago are on the Lakefront path and inevitably there are walker/weavers in the way. Annoying and dangerous! Hope you’re feeling better!

  3. Ugh! I truly hate perfume/cologne when I am trying to exercise! And so true on the inability of many people to keep a straight line, although I fear I am one, too!

    Fee better soon.

  4. Ha! I just went by a walker this morning and he was doing just that!… I didn’t know if I should left or right went I got near him…LOL

    I dont mind the perfume thing. Smoke bothers me more.

  5. I don’t like to run by people who are outside smoking.

  6. I did encounter a couple when I was on a trail run. Maybe they were going on a walking date? They were all dolled up for each other. He wore cologne and nice shoes, she obviously had perfume, makeup, a glittery shirt… it was ridiculous! Meanwhile, there’s horse poo on the trail.

  7. I’m pretty sure that I don’t always walk or run in a straight line – even on the treadmill I will catch myself weaving side to side on occasion!
    Gross to the perfume cloud while running!!!

  8. Hope you’re feeling much better Michelle! Perfume clouds are horrible. That’s a recipe for a migraine.

  9. The worst thing I have experienced is probably smokers and incosiderate drivers. The best: A deer crossing my path.
