Dear Cute Boy

Dear cute boy running by the dog park,

Right off the bat, I'm willing to forgive you for having a small dog instead of a big ol' man's-man dog like a golden retriever.... we'll work on that.  I'm going to go ahead and assume that it was a family member's dog that was going to need to be put down unless you could step in as the hero of the day and take it in.  You're right, that is awfully admirable of you.

Moving right along, to explain my staring slash gawking this evening, I must admit that I have pretty poor vision, so I was eyeing you for quite sometime presumably "checking you out."  When you smiled and waved (yes, at this point I wasn't even aware that you were looking back at me, again blame the eye sight) [sidenote:  how do I not get struck by cars while running?  Christ....] I can only imagine that I looked like this:
In fact I know I did, because my nose is mondo-stuffed up so I was a horrendous mouth breather on this run.  Additionally, I distinctly recall that my mouth was wide open and quickly shut my trap to smile and wave back.  See!  I can be cute!
Meh, who am I kidding, I more often look like the former than the latter, if we're going to get really honest.

ANYWHOSITS.... We should probably get together.... discuss our future golden retriever's name, and start planning out our 2011 race schedule (jk, it's already planned out.  I hope you realize that what this actually means is I'll just be convincing you to run the same races as me in 2011, right?  Mmmk).  Let me know when you're free.

xoxo
Jerbear

Other than waving and smiling at my future husband, t'was a pretty uneventful run.  Oooooooooook, it was amazing, because I'm still on that "my runs are like unicorns and rainbows and kittens and sparkles."  So there's actually a chance that the guy I was gaga over on my run was actually Aaron and I was too blinded by the run's awesomeness to realize it.  FML.

I did 7.5 miles in 1:11:59 for a pace of 9:34.

At first I thought this letter was to me but then realized that I'm not cute, no longer a boy, and live quite far from you. Enjoy your new boy toy.

You are too cute! I've only come across a cute boy once while out running :( But my thought process was very similar haha.

Bahahaha...Patrick. Jer...Have you tried the "skyooze me...do you have any extra GU line"? Works on me everytime.

Meeting my future husband on a run would be AMAZING. We really should start doing our runs together....we could double date!

Ed said...

Wow!... Haha. I uhhh.... grrr... sorry, I just ummmm... don't know what to say. I guess... well, I'm completely flattered. But, eeeehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... my dog, pipsqueek already has a mother, if you catch my drift. I mean, you're gorgeous, jeri. That whole mouth open thing you got goin on... it works. Trust me! I just don't think this is a good time to start talking about our future dogs and the races you signed me up for... but really, honestly, you're a sweet heart and I do appreciate it ;) take care.

LOL - I LOVE this post. LOVE. I don't know what it is about those race photo dudes, but they always get me in some form of death spiral too.

I'm pretty sure I saw that girl in the first photo at Twin Cities. Not sure about the girl in the second photo though.
