Bobby Bare, All American Boy
I received a text from a friend the otherday in which she confided "I'm tired of being sick, grumpy, and I want to go for a run".
It got me thinking.
February is a grumpy month of frigid days and colder nights. The endless darkness weighs upon our shoulders us as we hunker down and go through the motions of life. February is square wheels, icy seats, and fender boogers. It's tax time. It's time to tighten the belt and face down the red line debt. It's a time of tasteless fruit and brown slush. February is yuck!
The long range forecast calls for a return to seasonal temperatures in just seven days, hang in there! But we know it's just a guess and the target is always, a.l.w.a.y.s. just out of reach.
It's time to drop kick February!
I am on a mission to improve the quality of life for humanity! No small task, not for the faint of heart, but I'm up to it.
|Old school iPod|
- You must own the song (no illegal downloading please).
- The person receiving must be connected to running in some capacity (This rule is pretty loose. I only mention it because this is a running blog, duh).
- The turnaround time for each person is 24 hours or less.
- The last person will contact me to arrange pick-up
- To make this as inclusive as possible, you will be challenged on a grid to find someone who: 1) has run a 100 mile Ultra, 2) has run a 5km, 3) uses a wheelchair, 4) was born in a country other than Canada, 5) has survived cancer 6) is over 70, 7) an MRA board member, 8) lives with depression (and is willing to share), 9) has experienced a significant loss in the last 12 months, 10) a race director of a running event.
If you're stuck, just pass it onto buddy down the street.
I will pass the iPod onto my grumpy friend to get this started.
It's a good day to be alive.
