shocking run

Ran this morning -- in a desperate attempt to get some miles under my feet. Ran on the treadmill at work, wearing a pair of capris that are clearly made of synthetic "wicking" fabric. And, well, let's be honest. I'm not one of those girls whose thighs don't touch. So when running in synthetic capris... apparently a bit of static electricity builds up.

I should point out that this has never happened before.

But as I plodded along, I noticed that occasionally I felt as if I was getting poked by the treadmill. I thought perhaps there was a sharp spot on it somewhere. I do happen to run a bit too close to the front of the treadmills, which means that I bump up against the "safety bar" or whatever you want to call it. And every time I touched it with one of my legs, I got a little shock.

Yes, that's right. I was building up up static electricity, With my thighs.

Man. How lame is that?

Lindsay tells me it's because I was running so fast.

Erm... yes.
