This, THIS is what I get for going headphone-less.
Being privy to snide comments.
So that's what I got to hear today on the trail, while I was busy busting my ass—with no headphones—cuz I'm tryin' that, too, and btw? it blows—trying to break 15-min miles walking. Do you people have any idea how hard that is?!?! Give me four miles in under an hour. I double-dog dare you to try it. Triple-dog.
So anyway, I'm walking along, minding my own business, trying to catch the moms with the strollers and the old lady in front of me, and the guy on the gurney hooked up to the oxygen, when this women on roller blades slows and says to the roller-blade dude behind her, "Go around me, I'm slow. I'm probably even slower than her," with a nod in my direction.
Ha, ha, I say. Cuz I'm nice that way. What I want to say? Is, listen lady, I just had my wee-wee worked on, and I'm not allowed to run, OK? I'm not allowed to do anything but walk, but I used to be able to run, but now it's going on eight weeks of no running, but I was almost getting close to being not horrible just before I had to quit, so why don't you just take that stick out... nevermind.
Instead, I say: ha ha.
I can't wait 'til I can run cuz I am gonna seriously kick a few people's asses!
In the meantime: Have a nice day.
