Okay, so this week on the blog was pretty running heavy – which makes sense, because, well, my life is pretty running heavy 😉 You know, with the 10K, my random racing thoughts, running playlist additions and McMillan talk – but you know what, I do recognize that there are some readers that reach my site that are not 100 percent into running and that’s okay.
So for you, my friends (and also, for you my running friends) I would like to present my list of “Trends that I do not Understand” – inspired a repository of thoughts that have appeared in my brain over the past few weeks – and yes, these probably popped into my mind while running, but I digress…
- Color Runs – I
like, nay LOVE having fun. I love running. But the sudden popularity in paying $$ to run these untimed 5K races, while being simultaneously pelted with technicolor powder? No, I don’t understand it…and after this recent issue with a what I see as a copycat company, my disinterest was just confirmed. Oh, and one more thing – how DARE you call yourself ‘the happiest 5K on the planet.’
- Owls – okay, I am admittedly deathly afraid of birds…and this recent article just solidified that fear, but seriously, what is up with owls as a cute ‘thing’? Owl fans, please let me know, I know you’re out there!
- Mustaches – just….why?
…some things I will just never understand.
What are you into lately?
