“Wow, the sun is out.”
“Let’s go for a lunchtime walk. I need some inspiration for a blog.”
“Sure, work can wait.”
“Hmmm. My work shoes have the same Vibram soles as my running shoes.”
“Maybe let’s go for a lunchtime run instead of a walk. How much worse could it be than my normal running shoes.”
“And my work pants fit me pretty loosely, so it should work out okay. And I do have deodorant back in my office.”
“And the sun is still shining.”
“Wee! Let’s go!”
The sun stayed out. Inspiration was all around me. And as a bonus, I got in about 7 km of mostly running so I don’t have to run tonight to keep my streak going.
But I made the mistake of taking my shoes off when I got back to the office. Whew, they stink. I guess that’s why leather shoes aren’t meant for running in. I think I’ll keep a spare pair sitting around the office for next time I need some lunchtime inspiration.
