Friday Fillers

Anne Marie over at Goals for the Week dedicated her Friday's post to EMZ. Basically it is about "filler blogs" and why we blog.  Click on the links for some interesting reads. 

Here's my 2-cents.
I started this blog with the sole intention of sharing my runs. I realized that my mind gets really random when I run. It's not possible to share my running experiences without sharing all those random thoughts. And my random thoughts usually are related to real-life experiences.  So there you go - here's a blog that's running-related with real-life thrown into the mix. 

Here's a little real-life + running.

I found a package for me on the front porch this morning before I drove to work.  I controlled myself and didn't open it until lunch time.
I found these:

I chatted with a friend in college recently on the phone about him being a new dad and all the wonderful joys of being a father.  When asked about how I am doing recently, I found myself talking INCESSANTLY about running. So, while at a used book sale, he came across these two books and purchased it for me. This was an absolutely thoughtful gift because this was an absolutely sweet gesture that totally acknowledged my love for running.  Thanks Vinay!

Happy Friday y'all!


  1. I find when I run my mind is all over the place. And at the time it feels like the most important, deep, hysterical, serious, funny material ever. I always want to go home and blog it all out because I just KNOW everybody else cares .... yeah, they probably don't. But I still go home and babble anyway.

    I don't think I can have a single conversation without running being discussed. I try so hard, but it just never fails. It is the only thing always on my mind right now. I bet I am so annoying to everybody at work!
