The ‘WOW’ factor

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 9:54 am

Last night and today have, so far, been full of ‘WOWs’.

This morning, WOW, I ran hills. WOW. It was tough. 7 repeats, 2:00 uphill (3-4% incline), 2:00 back downhill. Plus warm-up and cool-down, around 40 minutes total running. The humidity was killer. I was having a tough time breathing, and my left quad was cramping. WOW. I can’t believe I made it through the workout this morning but I did. Oh, and WOW, I’m running again tonight. My first double. Hope I make it!


Last night was a WOW night too. I’ve been kind of mum on the whole ‘dating thing’ for a while now. Wasn’t much going on anyway. I’ve gotten a few emails from a few different guys (yeah, online dating…), but only one turned into a date. And WOW, I’m glad!

There was a First Date for coffee. Relaxed, enjoyable, interesting, good-looking, funny. Absolutely, I’ll go out with him again.

Second Date involved more effort. Actual planning and forethought took place. We went to see Richard III at the Shakespeare Festival. I packed a picnic dinner and a couple of bottles of wine, and, up until it started lightning, then raining, in the middle of the second act, it was a perfect night. He can quote Shakespeare. He’s polite, well mannered, funny. This is most excellent. WOW.

Third Date was last night. Italian restaurant for dinner, with cheesecake for dessert, then a DVD at my house. (Yes, nosey people, we watched the movie.) We talked for a while, and then I took him home (yeah, I have this ‘thing’ about driving…other people’s driving kind of freaks me out…it’s not an ‘issue’, it’s a ‘thing’). He can carry on an intelligent conversation, has interesting things to say, makes me laugh, is very complimentary (I think I’m getting spoiled on compliments right now…WOW). Again, most excellent.

All I have to say about this guy so far is WOW. So many good things about him. Did I mention good-looking too? I think I did, but I’ll say it again. Oh, and he writes too…mostly poetry. I have two so far. WOW! I haven’t yet found a fatal flaw. Date Four is in the works. Most excellent. WOW.


  1. WOW!! Sounds like a great guy, and I’d like to see some pics. I’ll never pass up the opportunity to look at a beautiful man! Good luck on your race this weekend and for heavens sake don’t over train so you hurt yourself and can’t do anything but lay on the couch and watch tv. Wait, that’s my utopia what am I saying? Never mind.

  3. Keep us up to speed with how everything is getting on.

    What will you do if another online dater asks to see you while Date Four is being planned?

  4. Wow! Glad things seem to be going well for you.

    I think running on hills is what messed up my knee. Once I stopped doing hills, my knee got better.
