Something that “run through sb's head/mind” means in Cambridge dictionary as follows:
"If something is running through your head/mind, you cannot stop thinking about it or singing it silently: I've had that tune running through my head all day."
The dictionary doesn't list a second meaning but I heard it used in a different way on a YouTube video:
"If you are an ESL student where English is your second language and you say “hiking is funny” a native speaker will run through his mind "Why is hiking funny?” it doesn't really make sense. Or “Going to an amusement park is fun” that's the correct way to say it."

Is the second sentence true? Can I say "I run through my mind my girlfriend" or "My girlfriend run through my mind", or maybe both of them are true.
"Object + run through + one's mind" or "Subject + run through + one's mind"? Which one of them are true?
Many thanks in advance.
