79 Thoughts While Running That Go Through My Mind !

411 Views - 4 mins read

Ever had that moment where your kid decides to have a complete meltdown just when your most important client rings up to discuss the latest project status? I have those, and many others too. Too many, in fact. Moments that make me want to flee the country and shack up in Timbuktu. So why am I still here? Because I get all the crazy out of me when I run every morning, barring Sundays. Sundays are my free-pass days. Anyway, back to the exorcism of crazy through running! I run and indulge in some pretty interesting thoughts while running, just because that’s the time I owe to myself to be completely free. That’s the time to ponder, and li’ll ol’ me ponders on a lot of things.

The reason I’m sharing these thoughts here are, of course, for your entertainment, but also to enlighten you how being a little isolated, with only your thoughts as company, early in the day keeps you sane and strong the rest of the day. And for all you men out there, catch a glimpse of what any woman might think when they are left alone! So here are 79 thoughts that go through my mind while running – mind you, they keep changing according to my mood –

  1. Must. Stretch. Now. Oh man, the watchman is looking…. double stretch tomorrow!
