So my long runs have been kind of ho hum. Perhaps the APD is reading my blog, because the drug dealer and his watchers were not out on Saturday for my 8 miler.
I got new shoes. I still haven't decided how I like them. The New Balance 1340 which replaces the NB 1012. I didn't get fitted for them but did some online research to know to go half a size bigger and wider. Which is good, because I don't think my feet would fit in the C/D. But I'll review the 1340 for later. Just if anyone is looking to see what how the shoe fits, there you go. My PSA.
Before I go any further... I am addicted to my phone. I will stop the washing machine to make sure the phone isn't in there when I can't find it. I sleep with it under the pillow. My heart starts beating faster when I don't know where it is. Even driving, I have to know where it is (charging usually).
OK, so we have long known I view the gym as my church. I go there to get things done, to think thoughts through, to think about how to better myself, and mostly self-focus. So I can usually be fine in my deep trains of thought until about 6pm when I'm jolted from them. I adjust my headphones. I make sure My Chemical Romance is playing at deafening levels. Yet, there is no mistake.
"Like, really. I can't believe you wore that. OH.MY.GOD! Can you like believe I slept with him? He was such a lousy lay seriously."
Yes, this is what jolts me out of my
Yesterday's conversation was (at 6pm) "I can meet you at 645. I'm at the gym. No, I'm just walking so I won't get sweaty. I'm only going to walk for like 5 minutes, because I CAN.NOT. STAND. South Park, and some idiot turned that on."
It was clear I had the remote. I thanked her for calling me an idiot. She was like, "I did not." I said, "I can hear you as can the whole rest of the gym. Really, you aren't that important. You aren't the leader of a country or in a war. You don't need a phone on you at all times." A guy smirked.
But really, you aren't that important.
When I got in the car, I took my phone out of my gym bag. I put it in the charger. I texted D that I was on my way home. Then I started on my way home. It was Halloween and a ton of kids were out. The phone rang. I let it ring. Because really, I'm not that important.
