Summertime Running

Thankfully the summer has been rather mild for the most part here in the greater NYC area.  So the running outside hasn’t been too bad, but still, I come back rather sweaty.  That’s when this plays out..

Heading to the bathroom for a shower.  Hands grab onto shirt to pull it off (don’t worry this isn’t 52 shades of gray)..

Head:  Humming along tiredly..

Hands:  (partway pulling the shirt up)  Eww WTF this is disgusting!  (Let go of shirt which falls back down)

Body:  (much like a boiled frog, previously ignorant of the disgusting sweat infused material covering it, has been woken up) AAAAAAAAAAA, get it off get it off GET IT OFFFF!!!!

Hands:  No way am I touching that again.

Body:  Cmon cmon cmon it’s gross.  Just grab it quick.

Hands:  Nuh-uh

Head:  Humming along tiredly…

Legs:  Hey knock it off up there.  We’ve been running for miles carrying you lot and we want a hot shower and a sit down.

Body:  (Wailing on the ground gibbering) get it off get it off get it off

Legs:  Don’t make us come up there!

Hands:  Alright alright.  Pull shirt up.

Face:  (suddenly covered in sweaty shirt) (muffled) AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Things I’m Looking Forward Too

Spring is definitely here and summer is not too far off, and I can say I am looking forward to a number of things:

1 – Not Being So Hot.  Or at least I hope so since I was cold all winter.  I’ve got a lot less padding, so I hope it translates.

2 – Shorts.  The wife reminded me, I need to get some, since all my shorts are 16-18 inches ago.

3 – Beach Time.  While I can lose a few pounds still, I won’t be the biggest guy out there by far.  May even take the ol’ shirt off.

4 – Water Park Time.  Same as beach, we’ll be going to a water park for a few days for the little one.

5 – Rollerblading – assuming I can shake a few minutes out of the training, used to love rollerblading.  And they should fit again now!

6 – Yard Work.  Not really, but I am looking forward to not being so exhausted by it.

7 – Amusement Parks.  Little one might be big enough for a ride out to Rye Playland.  I will enjoy fitting in the rides.

8 – BBQ’ing (grilling to the southerners).  Well I look forward to that every year, so not weight loss related.  But I do a mean grilled vegetable as well as burgers.

9.  Hikes.  Just have to find some kid friendly ones.

10.  ? – I’m sure I’ll think of something!  Summertime is always full of opportunity!
