Running to Stand Still

Just like the song I have an addiction*. I haven't told you all this, but I do. I need it and last night I wasn't having a good run at all. I was running just to stand still. Until. Right before I decided to make my run short and go home, I headed for the dark street corner to get my fix.

I decided if I ran to the corner, there would surely be someone at the dimly lit gas station and I could score some stuff. Then I could run home.


The chart tells the story. Did you notice my split time after my treat was much better than the rest of the splits in last nights run. If you like song titles for blog titles and want to play the "name that song title game" go visit Irene at Magazine Smiles. Did you know the band of "Running to Stand Still" before you clicked on the link?
*If you are checking my blog as a back ground check, for the purposes of hiring me please note my addiction is to ice cream and running. Sadly, in that order.

Your run looks like mine last night too, Pat! Sadly, I did not have any icecream for a pick-me-up :(

It has been a tired, tired week this week....Saturday should be interesting!

I rewarded my 3 mile run last night with 3 peanut butter cups. Sadly I wish I had ran a 1/2 marathon.

Thanks for the mention, Pat! I'm just trying to keep up with the Monahans... You see, I decorated my blog header for the holidays, too. :)

I miss icecream! Stupid allergies...

Somethings are just worth the little detour...

That was a fun post. Glad your addictions are both healthy ones (well, at least one is!).
I gave in to some Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia this week. And I'm not even running yet. Sad.

I didn't know the song or that U2 sang it. Guess that officially makes me an old geezer.

Funny post. Thought of you as there was some realtor convention at my hotel. Didn't see ANY of them running though. :D

Love the banner of your post on the top with pix of thousands Santa Claus runners! Great banner!
