I look at the sky - day or night, daydream about cloud formations, or try to figure out if that bright thing in the sky is Jupiter, Venus, or a plane. I have a few favorite trees I check out each time, watching how they change with the seasons.

I count yard signs. My neighborhood is full of yard signs - political signs, church shindig ads, roofers, etc. Lately a 3 mile run gets me 300 signs.

I run to the fancy side of town and daydream about what kind of house I might like if someone would do the cleaning for me and pay the heating bill. I look at people's landscaping for ideas on what to do about our yard.

Once I printed off a map of my neighborhood, and made the goal of running every single block in the neighborhood in one month's time. I discovered a few neat things in the area doing that.

I started running 3 years ago. Hated when I started & still hate it. I have no love for it. In highschool I was a sprinter, I like sprinting because it's over faster(obviously,lol). Long distance I hated in high school & that hasn't changed.

I've ran with & without music.

I've ran with & without people.

I've done C25 & similar programs & in classes.

HATE it!

but you won't know if you hate it until you try.

You are so right! I won't know for sure if I truly hate running or not until I try.
