Random Thoughts Thursday, Running

Random Thoughts Thursday.

It has been quite a CHILLY week down here in Texas! It is that bipolar time of year where we are in the 60s one day and in the 30s the next. With…dare I say…snow! We had some snow flurries earlier in the week but they are now long gone. I can’t have my roads with ice on them. I need to RUN. And run often, outside, during the work week especially.

Running has truly helped me to keep my sanity in these last couple of weeks. My stimulus check was delayed for several days because of a Turbo Tax / IRS mix up (my Turbo Tax peeps know what’s up). But then I finally received it last Friday. So all is now well in the world.

I’ve been finding more serenity in running alone lately. Running groups in Texas have started relaxing restrictions but I’m not super comfy yet with running with large groups of people. Plus I really do enjoy solo runs. I think in general — people just can’t help but want to run with folks, but is that really safe in a pandemic? You tell me.

I think in general folks are just getting tired of their own company and want to be WITH PEOPLE. I mean, I get it. But I am also an only child. Who loves my own company and being in my own crazy head. I am an ambivert of sorts.

I am thankful during these times that I do have some really great friends that know and love me…and thankful also for incredible family. I’m not sure how I would’ve gotten through 2020 without them. Love my people.

Share some random thoughts with me!! Do you consider yourself an introvert, extrovert…or both?! Have you started back with running with select running buddies or do you mostly run solo?

  1. I love my people too! I used to pretty much only run alone and music kept me company, but I’ve really changed into a social runner. I have a small circle that I trust and we’ll cautiously run together. I’m with you on that ambivert feeling.

  2. I think that I’m an introvert with extrovert tendencies ( or maybe it’s the other way around around 🤪). For example, I’ll travel to a foreign country alone to “get away from everyone and everything”, but manage to chat with complete strangers.
