If a Tree Falls in the Forest...

...and nobody is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

I never really *got* that philosophical pondering.

But then yesterday, I pushed myself through a long run, and I wondered:

If I run ten miles, but don't tell anybody about it, does it really count?

And I think the answer is "Nope!" 

Because we runners are very braggy like that.  It's a motivational thing :)


  1. That's awesome!

    Maybe one of these days I can get this old body to go that far. My mind says "yes" but my knees say "no"!

  2. Brag on, lady! I'm in complete awe.

  3. That's why people who wear race t-shirts from races they didn't finish give me pause.

    Shoot, I won't even put the darn thing ON until I'm showered from finishing it.

  4. Some of it is just being in awe of the fact that you did it . . not necessarily bragging! And even if it is, I say brag on! Way to go!

  5. You are amazing!!!! You go mama!!!

    (If I didn't have such huge boobs, you'd inspire me to start running!!)

  6. Right on Katie....every time I finish a run, especially the long ones...I'm like hey, I really did that! I have to tell somebody too.

    Plus, like today....I think about the food I get to eat since I ran! Even 3 miles bumped up my calorie allowance.

  7. Well, I think we'd all be disappointed if you didn't say something.
    I know if I ran 10 miles in a day, I'd be telling ;)
    Way to go!!

  8. You ran ten miles and can live to tell! YIPPEE....i would be dead!

    I am not a runner. Too hard on my knees, my back, my neck, my everthing.

    keep up the hard work.
