Rest Day

Friday, May 28, 2010

Yep. Not a lot to blog about.

Just wanted to say that when reading over my last blog I thought it seemed pretty mean/offensive when I said I got eyerolly over her spirituality. On the one hand - I have to admit, it's true - but it's not so much her beliefs as the way she writes about it -- like some new agey amorpheous spiritual ... I dunno. Hard to put my finger on it. It's the attitude and not the content. Because as I wrote, the content actually did resonate with me after I got past the initial annoyance factor of the packaging on those particular subjects. :)

I do have respect for other people's varying belief systems and would never roll my eyes at someone if they were telling me about their beliefs! I do draw a line somewhere but it's not at people who believe in a higher power that isn't necessarily God, or at people who are just atheist or something... more so at super crazy cult like beliefs. :) haha.

Looking forward to the concert tonight!!

I was looking at the weather forecast for the weekend trying to plan when I'll run and honestly - NO time looks good. I know I'll be up late tonight and probably tomorrow night (concert, party - although BWRC parties aren't known to be all night ragers or anything.. HAHAHA) and the heat and humidity here in AL are just NOT letting up anytime soon. Getting up early will most certainly result in a dead on the feet run, but sleeping in will result in having to run at the hottest part of the day. It's quite a conundrum. I'm thinking what I'll do is flip my runs AGAIN - I've been WANTING to do my "Long Run" on Saturday and the shorter weekend run on Sunday - like a long run and then recover run - but considering I have a better chance of getting to bed earlier on Saturday night...and there's a nice block of "mostly cloudy" weather on the forecast for Sunday morning.... I'm thinking 3-4 tomorrow and aiming for 7 again on Sunday.

    I saw the author when she was on Oprah a few weeks ago and had a few eye rolling moments myself lol! I hope the concert was fabulous!

    Could you run in the early evening, or would that run into your plans?

    I didn't think your last blog post was offensive at all. People's spiritual / religious beliefs, or lack thereof, are personal. If someone is sharing them with you, it's either because they trust you (and like you said, you would never eyeroll in that case) or because they are putting it out there in a public forum in a book, which then opens them up to criticism. FWIW, I do the eyeroll thing when I read about things that are a little "fringe".

    Have a great weekend!

    Hey, do you have a day off on Monday (Memorial Day)? Maybe you could do one of your runs that day.

    Have a emoticon weekend!

    Have a fun week-end! I checked out the book in the bookstore, but have to write my research paper first... more interested now.
