Running Commentary 9/18/2023 #mondaymusings


Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness prompt on Saturday (9/16), was to use ‘run’. After I wrote my contribution, I tumbled down a ‘run’ rabbit hole that seems appropriate for today’s Monday Musings. Here’s my running commentary. 😉


During my lifetime, I have...

  • run dry
  • run solo
  • run into
  • run away
  • run across
  • run to you
  • run a bath
  • run a mile
  • run scared
  • run aground
  • run rampant
  • run from you
  • run for cover
  • run up against
  • run a gauntlet
  • run a red light
  • run for my life
  • run a tight ship
  • run out of ideas
  • run up a bar tab
  • run out of steam
  • run with scissors
  • run out of energy
  • run over the limit
  • run down the road
  • run into a brick wall
  • run around in circles
  • run but couldn’t hide
  • run amok but not afoul
  • run through a sprinkler
  • run with sketchy people
  • run through a field of clover
  • run a fever and a temperature
  • run thoroughbred racehorses
  • run a toddler around the yard
  • run around like a chicken with its head cut off
  • run out of parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme
  • run out of money, gasoline, patience, and time
  • run barefoot through snow, mud, sand, and grass
  • run bootlegged Coors beer east of the Mississippi River

I have also…

  • felt run down
  • made a dry run
  • made a good run
  • been run ragged
  • made a run for it
  • turned tail and run
  • been run roughshod over
  • had runners in my nylons
  • told runners “On your mark!”
  • made someone’s blood run cold

I have never hit a home run, been on the run, run with the bulls, or run for the hills.

And I count as a personal and positive character trait that I have never run for political office.





Until next time,
