Yesterday I went for 5 miles run. I run on a fairly busy street that has a lot of shops and traffic lights. Sometimes people I know honk at me, some
Most of my friends commented that I am not fat. I know that...now. The reason I shared that and I am posting this now is to show people are mean. For no reason. It is pretty sad.
Those were 2 young punk driving an old Camaro. Their moms did an awesome job raising them obviously.
Here's the thing, yesterday it did not bother me in a way that it would hurt my feelings. It bothers me to witness that kind of behavior towards anyone. Recently I saw an interview with Julia Roberts and she was saying that she does not like the Internet and the social networking websites like twitter and facebook because people can be mean and say all kinds of crap and hide. She is right. These guys were not really hiding because I saw them in their car but they drove away in the opposite direction and clearly I was not going to run after them. I was tempted to show them how long my middle finger is but I did not...that would have give them the satisfaction to get a reaction out of me. Bottom line is mean people are cowards.
Yesterday "Run Fatty" did not bother me.
But 3 years ago it would have.
If that guy had said "Run Fatty" to this gal in the pictures. She would have been crushed and humiliated and she would have not returned running "in public". I am pretty sure this is what would have happened. It is likely that I would have given up.
If there are women, or men, out there trying to change their lives for the better and some morron yells something mean like that to them it could send them back to square one. That is sad and depressing.
Tomorrow: Race Day!
5k Susan G Komen.
My goal is to beat last year's time.
This is a tough course for a 5k. There is a nasty hill in the first mile.
I pulled something in my groin doing the myrtl routine yesterday so I am going to be careful.
