On the schedule today was an 8 mile run, which I hopped on the treadmill for this morning. It faces outside and I got to watch the bobcat (machine, not animal) loading up gravel to put around the back of the house. When I started I was wearing a sports bra and shorts, my normal indoor at home running gear. The driver was way off in the distance so I felt fine.
|Attire = standard. Pose = unusual.|
Fast forward about 30 minutes. I head to the shower (at the OTHER side of the house) because, duh, that's what sweaty people do post-run. I have an awesome shower and then start singing to myself as I towel off. And then I make eye contact with the gravel guy, who just happens to be walking around the back of the house.
Did I mention I was nude? I did? Ok. So I did what anyone would do in my position and jumped back into the shower. And waited there for several minutes hoping that it didn't happen. No dice. I kept peeking out and realized that hubby and gravel man were just chilling in front of the window having a conversation. Awesome.
If you were waiting for a point to the story - sorry. But I do have a moral for you. No matter how nice it is to live in the boonies with lots of windows and no curtains...get them anyway. The end.
I should write a children's book. I could create some awesome morals for stories. Examples:
"And that's how the little runner girl learned that curry was not a good pre-race meal."
"So Bobby never, ever went into the women's locker room every again."
"Remember that even if you think your trip to the toilet was interesting, it's not polite to talk about it at dinner."
Plus, I can draw (evidence HERE).
Where is my book deal? I'm the package deal!
Do you have curtains/blinds on your windows? What wakes you - alarm or sun?
Neither right now. At first because it was cheap, but now I actually prefer it most of the time. Today, of course, being the exception.
Is there a difference between what you wear to run in public vs. alone?
I usually wear a sports bra to run at home, but there is no way I would do that in public. Mostly it's because it's one less thing to wash when I'm just on the treadmill.
