Okay, I’ve got some ridiculous and embarrassing running revelations to share. Just promise, you won’t judge me too much. Thanks to Marcia for giving me a place to Runfess all of them.
Ridiculous and Embarrassing Running Revelations
I confess I am completely and utterly freaked out about the locusts that are about to descend upon us. What am I referring to? If the last year was not crazy enough, the Brood X Cicadas are about to hatch and swarm into our area. These little buggers come out every 17 years for about 4 weeks. I still have PTSD from the last time they were here!
Yes, these ugly and very nosy Cicadas are about to emerge and blanket our area. In fact. the Northern Virginia area appears to be the epicenter. Fantastic. We can expect about 1 million per acre at the peak.
So what does this have to do with running?
I am in an almost panic attack about how I am going to keep up my running schedule while there are literally millions of these locusts flying around. How can I run with these guys flying into my face and landing in my hair? In all seriousness, they fly right into you. I know they do not sting or bite but they are like 3 inches long.
I am thinking about running in a bee suit. Would that even work? Will I finally have to dust off my treadmill?
I need a plan. Any suggestions? Is anyone else freaked about the cicadas arriving? Serious anxiety emerging with the cicadas. What’s a runner to do? Thanks for letting me get this off my chest today!
