Thanks for every ones comments and concern about the cop. Don’t worry, I would definitely take the steps to make sure I was safe and would tell someone if something is up. Just a reminder to everyone to be safe and stay alert out on their running paths. Even though I usually run with my Ipod, I always am super aware and alert, especially since so many drivers are crazy out there!
Anyways, the plane ride up north was when I realized something. I was boarding the plane and the two people in front of me were very elderly. These two below reminded me of them.
It was super windy out and the old man’s hat almost blew off. I said, “Ha, ha, you gotta be careful out here huh! It’s so windy.” They pretty much both glared at me like I had just spoken to them in a different language, or said something offensive. I looked around to see if there was anyone else nearby that maybe they were angry with. Nope, that look was directed towards me. Cool. Thanks.
I get in my seat next to a guy, age ranging from 18-21. I took Jet Blue so there are TVs in the back of every seat. He was watching a football game that I wanted to watch so I asked him what the channel was. He looked at me with this look that was like seriously? and then changed the channel down to figure out what channel the game was on. I thank him and I found the game, but unfortunately there was only like four minutes left. After the game I didn’t want to watch the after show because I unfortunately I forgot my headphones, thus I wanted to watch something that I could still understand without sound. I looked at his little TV. It was women’s collegiate bowling. The NCAA championships. Not only am I amazed that this is actually a college sport, but I’m interested and want to watch. I ask him again what channel it’s on. This seemed to be like I’m pulling out his teeth.
I then decide that now is the perfect time to make small talk. I said, “Wow, that’s pretty crazy that this is a college sport!” He looked at me like I was an idiot, “Yea.” It was then I realized that the day after Christmas, maybe people weren’t so happy to fly? Or maybe people just hated me? It was an experience for the books so I just slumped down in my seat and enjoyed the rest of my 45 minute flight. I felt like I was ‘that girl’ who was the annoying passenger next to you on the plane that you don’t want to talk to.
Tonight I’m going to the gym again to hit up the weights. I am still sore though, I forgot how weak the rest of my body is. Something definitely to work on. Good luck to all those racing this weekend, including all the PF Changers in AZ! :) Have fun!
