Today I reached my goal: 25 miles in a month might not seem like a lot to some of my marathoner and ultra-runner friends but when you’ve been slacking on running for a while, 25 miles is a great accomplishment. And I did it thanks to my MODRUN running streak. I set a goal and achieved it and I’m feeling good.
Then as I was standing at the corner taking my post-run celebration selfie, I saw a celebrity. A TV personality who lives on my block. I’ve glimpsed him before but now I know for sure he lives close to me (because he was walking his dog and the dog hadn’t ‘gone’ yet), I’m feeling all kinds of excited. So what do you do when you want to be cool but not too cool? Well, you just say hey and act like this kinda thing happens to you all the time, of course.
The next time I see him, I’ll ask him to take a selfie with me. Hopefully I’m not dripping with sweat then. Or maybe it won’t matter. After all, I’m a runner. Soon to be a celebrity myself. Who knows. Maybe next time I see him, he’ll be asking to take a selfie with me!
What’s making you excited today?
