Sans Nod

I've said it before and I'll say it again:

8 is Great. 8 is my favorite distance lately. I just love it. It makes me sweaty, but no bits hurt afterwards. I just love love love it. I didn't bring Big G, but I think I made good time.


So, anyway, I was almost done with my run, about 4 blocks from my house when Mark McGrath ran by. Yep, he's a runner. (It's times like this that I think of Marcy and her camera-toting runs.) I think I even read somewhere (NOT that I read about him on purpose) that he was on the track team. He grew up around here (and still lives around here), that's the only reason I know. But, get this... I gave him "the nod" and he didn't nod back. Apparently, he doesn't read my blog and know that I have like 50 readers who will hear about this!
RUNNERS NOD, MARK. RUNNERS NOD!


I'm off to a Pool Par-Tay~ Peace.

OH... and the Secret TOTALLY worked yesterday, my boss closed the office early enough for me to make the 2:30 Yoga, so I had time to get a pedicure after. See... it works and/or I'm just one lucky sun-of-a-gun.

I wonder if he's just scared of the nod. Especially from chicks that could quite possibly out run him, tackle him, and completely redefine the term "positive splits" for all posterity.

I think it may be a combo pack: the Secret works and you're a lucky son-of-a-gun. Enjoy the pool party!

Secret worked for me too.

Judi said...

What a dickhead! Spit when you see him next time. LOL. He's a sell out anyways. Loser. Not you, him, I mean.

Have a good weekend and wish me luck!

My celebrity stalking self can barely contain myself right now. I would have had to start chasing.

Running Knitter said...

That was very rude of him not to nod. Even if you don't like to nod, what about a little wave? something?

Viv said...

Great on the 8! Maybe he did'nt nod back cause you were not wearing you single runner tee. Next run, he will be chasing your butt :-) or maybe just cause it wasn't Sunday Morning..bad joke i know
Have a blast!

MissAllycat said...

If I would have seen him, I wouldn't have nodded...

...I would have tackled him so I could lick him all over because YUM.

Heather said...

No nod? Damn. Is he cute in person? Or is that all makeup and good lighting?

carla said...

seriously , no nod?
Im not even a runner and I do the nod when Im out there briskly walking.

WAIT

that mightcould be an offense in and of itself!
:)

TNTcoach Ken said...

Everybody knows about the nod! Next time try the hand wave.

Marcy said...

Yeaahhhhhh I'm with Judi, I would've spit on him and then took a pic :P Ahole!

Non-Runner Nancy said...

No NOD? Dang. Although if you read the comments, he probably is afraid of what happens if he does nod. Chicks thinking it's an invitation to chase, tackle, lick, etc. hee hee

Nibbles said...

Maybe all the stars are scared of stalkers now because of the Uma Thurman case. :-)

*aron* said...

i love 8 miles too! perfect distance :)

YAY for the pedi and yoga!! hope you had fun at the pool party!

Anne said...

I think it's a celebrity thing. Megan Ryan was the same way when I "ran into" her a few years ago in Central Park. They just can't relate to us little people.

teacherwoman said...

No Nod? What a snob! :)

Erin said...

That is too funny...I guess he thinks he is too cool to nod??

eurydice said...

Now that's funny, even funnier is Nancy; Chicks thinking it's an invitation to chase, tackle, lick, etc. hee hee.

How does all this come from not nodding???

LMAO!!

Mendy said...

LMAO at Nancy.... I agree. Here, I say Hi, if I'm passing right by another runner, or I wave or nod if the runner is on the other side of the road.

No nod. Bummer, I thought he'd be a cool person... maybe.
