During those 13 years there are some runs that stuck with me.
So come along for a little trip down memory lane!
5 Memorable Running Moments
1. The run with the crotch sniffing
I was running on a busy bike path when I saw them coming. This man and his dog. He had it on a leash. But it was one of those retractable leashes. And sure enough, when our paths crossed his dog took a giant leap and put his nose where it shouldn't go. Right in the crotch.
And instead of pulling his dirty old dog back the man said: 'That smells great, right boy?'
2. The run with the thumbs up sign
He took one look at me and said: 'You hang in there girl! You're doing great!'
And immediately I felt better. I still think of his kindness, and how he gave me courage!
3. The run with my youngest son
I think it's important to spend lots of time with my kids. So even though I prefer to run alone, sometimes I take one of them with me. They ride their bike alongside me. On a Saturday afternoon I took my youngest son with me. thinking I was doing him a big favor.
But when we got home he said in a smug tone of voice: 'I did a good thing today mommy'.
'I kept you company during your run!'
4. The run with the dog bite
To this day I'm afraid of dogs!
5. The run with the stroll
I had just arrived in a nice restaurant after finishing my longest run ever. I was very proud of myself as I stumbled to a table. I felt like a Real Runner.
Then the waitress comes up to me and says: 'Having a nice little Sunday stroll?'
Do you have any memorable runs?
