Mindless Machines

Today Jester ran in the Milaca Mega Meet. I have heard it said to be the World's Largest High School Cross Country meet in the world. Last year there were over 3,000 runners who participated. I am waiting to hear the final count for this year. It is an awesome sight. Bare legs everywhere, except on Jester.

Jester said that many people called out to him during the run complimenting him on his socks. I asked if he yelled back that his mom found them on the internet. He said, "I was in the zone...actually I pretended I didn't hear them, because coach says we should be so into the run, that we aren't aware of anything but the run, that we should be mindless running machines. That's what I am, a mindless running machine." (Big cheesy smile.)

I am so glad he explained that to me. Now I know what I am. When I get on this computer and start blogging, I get in the zone. I am not aware of anything around me. That's what I am, a mindless blogging machine.


  1. "mindless blogging machine"...I think I am one kids are always acccusing me of not hearing a word they say when I am on the computer!

  2. Wow, that is alot of runners.
