4 Miles and a Great Hairdo

Where have I been? I was resting my legs after Viv ran her marathon. LOL! I have just been lazy. So I got up and went for a run today (after my breakfast at Einstein Brothers with D). So it was 69 degrees (69, heheheheheh...I'm such a child). I decided to go to the traack.
So I walked my warmup lap, and started mile 1. Around lap 3, I decided I would run 4 miles. Mile 1 was fine. Track to myself, basically. There was a guy who would run a lap and then go somewhere and then come back. Anyway...I started Mile 2. I knew I was not going to break any world records. It was rather boring. I heard lots of birds, and wondered when I started living in the country.

Mile 3 started and I decided I would only run the 12 laps. On lap 11, I decided that I would finish my 4 miles. I wasn't happy with this thought, by actually all the way to lap 14 was pretty fast (in my mind). Lap 15, I probably could have walked faster. Lap 16 was long. I thought I must be nuts because people don't take a week off and then run 4 miles, and what was up with me. Then 16 was over, and I walked 3 more laps for the cool down, for a total of 5 miles.
During my walk, I now had 3 people on the track, and I noticed they all were looking at me. I figured it was because no one ever saw such a good looking specimen as me. I got in my car and drove home. I passed 2 people with mohawks (which I snickered at). I passed one more person, and they pointed. So I got home and checked my hair. Well it turns out, I had a righteous 'do. When I run, my hands sweat, and I run them in my head.
So I decided to grace you all with my lovely 'do.

Have a good Memorial Day.

Confidence is key :-D

I thought you were going to say that there were in a meet or an official race or something and you were just randomly running on their track.

But OMG, lmao at the picture...too funny.
