I Run To Feel Good…

My favorite comment, as I’ve written about many times, is “I don’t run because I don’t want to wreck my knees”.

So here’s the question;  Is walking around with three or four bowling balls worth of extra weight not bad for your knees?

As with depression, the only way I know to be as pain free as possible is to get outside and move.

Now, if you want something “green” to move on – carbon fiber isn’t your thing, say you happen to be a tree-hugger, so you don’t like aluminum or steel…  Try this:

Dude, That's a road bike made out of BAMBOO!

Calfee is on the expensive side…  If that’s too much, check out Boo Bicycles.  I just happened to bump into Mike yesterday when I went out for my ride and he was telling me about a fella he saw at the Tuesday night ride that had one – who ever would have thunk it? Very cool – and I’m anything but a treehugger.

A Note To My Best Friend…

You have been preparing for this afternoon for weeks, getting yourself ready for your first push back into running.  You’ve got your Minimus shoes, your wardrobe, and now your legs.

While supportive, I’ve been rather quiet about your desire to run again, for reasons that don’t matter.  To be truthful, I want this so bad for you, so bad I can taste it.  I want for you to be free, to feel that unquenchable awesome that comes with setting all of those sequestered endorphins free and making the road your bitch.  I want for you to feel the exhilerating relief that “you did it”, or better, that you’re doing it.

I want for you to kick my ass.  I want to be able to tell my friends that not only can my wife run, she can smoke me, and she can do it in those damned barefoot shoes.

I want for our girls to see you run.  I want for them to see you sweat.  I want to watch you show them how it’s done.

It’s time.  Get your sexy on.

For my friends in the blogosphere – please take a second to pump my wife up for her triumphant return to running, tonight.

I love you baby.  Go get ’em.
