Tom Hiddleston Running Buddy
A POST!!! Which means, of course, I’M RUNNING AGAIN!!! Yes, ladies and gentleman, my darling HOARDE of readers and followers (taste my sarcasm, Michael! I don’t have a hoarde.) - I’ve been waiting for my foot to be 100% better, and after about 3 weeks there’s no more pain. So I went for a run.
More like, I went for a drag. I was excited. Fall was in the air, no humidity in sight. It was finally cool enough for me to break out my long sleeve bright yellow (sorry, bright MAIZE) Michigan running shirt, and I felt like such a badass. Someone even gave me a thumbs up for it, and I assume they must have shouted “Go Blue!” but I couldn’t hear them over ‘Shipping Up to Boston’ that was blasting on my ipod.
But it was a really difficult run. So difficult, in fact, that I tapped out at 2 and a half miles. I couldn’t do it. I basically just ran to the reservoir, took one long, sad look at it, and turned right back around and ran home. I felt like shit. Everyone was out training for the NY marathon, and everyone was in such good shape, everyone was doing so well, and here I was giving up after a measly 2.5? Well, it is what it is.
And now for my title! At one point on my run (my drag), I matched paces with a guy who looked JUST LIKE THIS RIDICULOUSLY ATTRACTIVE MAN:
Yes, I did a double take, even a triple-take just to be sure. Of course it wasn’t actually Tom Hiddleston (if Tom Hiddleston’s beard and dark hair at NYCC was anything to go by). But he was still a ridiculously attractive man, and we did run together for a little while… like 30 seconds or so, until I couldn’t keep up with him anymore. He was probably running like an 8 minute mile and I was running about a million-year mile, so think of him as my interval training. Interval training… with Tom Hiddleston. I WISH!
But I got a smile from a cute guy, I ran more than 0 miles today, AND!!! AND! Not only did I see some people running in Vibram 5 Fingers, but I also saw two guys running COMPLETELY BAREFOOT. I smiled at them, but they were too busy being barefoot badasses to notice.
AND!!!! This blog is moving. Tumblr is beautiful, but I don’t think it’s the right platform for this blog, in that it’s not so accessible to non tumblr users. So follow me if you want to:
