66 Days and Counting: What Do YOU think About…?

I was posed the question by a classmate recently about what I did during long runs. I explained that I did not run with headphones. He then asked: “Well, what do you think about?”

I’m not quite sure what I do think about. Sometimes motivational chants echo inside my head in hopes of maintain forward progression. I do day dream as well. I have thought about graduate school assignments and how to tackle problems/evaluation reports. I sometimes reflect on the past and pleasant experiences I’ve shared.

Sometimes I come up with witty jokes too. At least, on mile 8, they seem funny to me.

What do others do when running? How much do you think about your own body? Are you in-tune or tuning out?
