Thirsty?

One of the things I love about running or walking in my neighborhood is being social with the neighbors.  I enjoy a quick hello or nod to a fellow runner, or a wave to the firemen who I’m still trying to figure out if they live in that house instead of a station or they stop for coffee at one of their homes every day; because I see them loading up the smaller truck many mornings.  Though some days, like today when I saw one of them looking directly at me I’m afraid they are going to pull me over for my red face and make me lie down with a water pack on my forehead.  But I digress.

Today I had a social moment that was a first for me.  

About two-thirds of the way into my run I see there is a guy sitting in his work truck that I’m about to pass.  As I get closer he holds his hand straight out the window with a 32 oz. styrofoam cup offering a drink and grins.  I laughed and as I passed I said, “No thanks, but it sounds good!”  He chuckled and I kept going.

In a world where we have to be so careful about strangers I can’t help but still enjoy the little face-to-face interactions that happen when I’m out in the community.

    That's what is so interesting about being a part of the world, as we go about our daily routines. It's the small interactions that are so satisfying and sometimes surprising. I am enjoying your blog and reading about your progress. Although I have been blogging for nearly two years, I have had some detours, but I am now at the “true beginning” of my weight loss journey. Love your blog!

  3. We don't see many people on our road because it is a dead end, but my neighbors always lift a finger off their steering wheel as they drive past me every morning. (That's the country way of waving while you are driving.)

    Glad you are enjoying your runs Leah!
