Dreaming.

I may have misrepresented myself on Thursday. I don't always do math in my head when I run. I often think great thoughts about the meaning of life, compose the plots of can't-put-them-down novels, recite Eliot or, more frequently, free my mind to daydream.

And that's a treat. Because, really, when else can I daydream without worry of being called out? Sure, I could daydream at the grocery store, but then I'd end up with a cart full of several boxes of Cap'n Crunch and a couple pounds of bacon. And a toddler eating the Cap'n Crunch straight from the box. It just wouldn't work.

I guess I could daydream in the shower but I'm usually rushing because my toddler is either napping or sitting next to the shower in the exersaucer and it is only a matter of time before he decides he wants out NOW.

So that leaves my runs. They are the perfect opportunity to daydream. With no responsibilities to anyone but me, my thoughts can go where they please. Even if that sometimes means they wander over to the times tables.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, everyone!

I hear you, Homie-HomeFlee. Solo runs are a great time to refresh, relax and recharge for me too. No matter what pops into your head when you run, it's all good. Even math.

I always daydream, especially on my runs! The alone time is much needed.

Running is my private time of daydreaming, fantasizing, hoping, wondering, thinking, imagining and etc! :-)

Definitely with you on that one.

Oh, yes. Running helps me keep daydreaming from overtaking my life. You know what else I like about your post? The word exersaucer.
