After I saw the last crazy search term that lead to my blog, I decided to check those stats a little more regularly. Welp, I got another one…or, make that two.
I swear I keep my blog totes SFW, so I’m not sure how these types of blue searches end up at me. I swear, I’m innocent! 😉
Anyhoodle, I’m pretty sure the one looking for nude runners came across my blog because of THIS POST. But I don’t think whoever came upon my blog looking for man-panties found what they were looking for. Sorry bro.
In other news…Apparently school is getting ready to start round these parts. I know because I saw some youngins on my mornin runs this week.
In my part of town, I’m lucky if I see ONE running sole (see what I did there). But when I arrived at my usual park the other day, I was excited to see a bunch of people out running! And as I got closer to them, I realized they were a high school co-ed cross country team out for a training run. Hey kids, I ran CC and track in high school too! See?!?
I was running ‘upstream’ on the trail, so I passed by the entire team. At first I was a little worried that they’d think of me as the creepy old guy. They’d be right. But a curious thing happened….a few of them said their hellos to me, and then a couple gals said, “Nice job!”
It took me off guard. But when I regained my composure, I said the same thing to the next HS runners I passed. They replied, “Thanks, you too!”
I no longer weep for the future.* The youth are alright alright alright.**
Our interactions left me with a feeling of having some new besties. And I know this will get me future weird search results to my blog, but yes, they are teens.
So I was very excited on this morning’s run when I came to the park and saw all the cars and water bottles. “Yes, my friends are here!” Unfortunately, they were already off in the distance and I never caught up to them. I wonder if they missed me too.
How bout you? Ever get a running lift when you come across others? Did you run in H.S.? Are you here because you need man-panties?
*Bonus points if you get this movie reference.
**Triple bonus points if you get this one.
I totally get a running lift when I see others as it makes me feel like maybe the bears won’t just be chasing me. Unfortunately I don’t often see others. We didn’t have track at the teeny tiny school I went to, but they did let us run in the woods for phys ed and I enjoyed it way back then.
