When she gets, back, we’ll have to ask Betty about her airport experience...I can’t wait to hear about the body search at the airport. Was it fun? Did you leave your ID at home on
Here’s my story for the week that has only a limited relationship to running. Edith was wandering around the campus yesterday. She said she was looking for a nice place to film math teachers (seriously...math teachers? A nice place? On our campus?), with her production assistant (I think that’s what she called him), Rod, who is going to help her film. Anyway, she introduced me as one of the several people that she runs with...a group which includes all of you and which also includes BBJ, who Rod (yes, I’m giggling every time I type his name), had just
The conversation went something something like:
E: There’s a group of us who run together, and it includes, well you know Leslie and also Big Bootie Jim, you just met him. He’s a math teacher.
R: I did?
E: Yeah, he’s really into rap music and hip-hop. You should see him dance
R: (Blank look...he must be thinkin’ “who did I meet who looked like he might be into hip-hop”)
E: You know, Jim C-- ...the guy in the sweater-vest!
R: Seriously? No Way!
I don’t know if we really convinced him or not.
Other things I learned this week...1) Officer Stoney does not have a vase for HIS nightstick. He suggested that they just do that in Lakeside). 2) None of us know what size shirt we wear.
I have some other random thoughts and comments about running this week and how much I’ve learned about all of the bodily functions and injuries we’ve incurred as a result of running this past month. I thought I’d record some of them here. I’m sure there are more than
Elsie: Knee pain and various digestive issues and this morning she was worried about soreness in her hip.
Clarence: Heel spurs, occasional dizziness and nausea (no, she’s not pregnant).
Betty: Back pain, various chaffing issues (wear a good sports bra for pete’s sake).
Edith: Digestive issues and and an ex w/a bimbo girlfriend w/fake boobs (I think that counts. It is a pain)
BBJ: Calf strain
Alice: Achilles pain (shin sprints seem to have moved to the back side) and some back pain this week.
I think treadmill running is out for me from now on (unless I’m truly desperate). Seems like whenever I run on the TM, the shin-splints and back pain gets worse.
And finally, for those of you who are really paying attention...yes, many of these photos were taken at the Super Run two weeks ago... These were the last photos taken of us running, and were the only ones which I could download this afternoon from the RnR website when I first uploaded this post. I’ve since added more and I looked for BBJ in last week’s photos from Cardiff, but didn’t see any :-(
Take care of yourselves. I’ll be back to running on Tuesday this week.
Oh yeah, for those who care about mileage, here’s the MapMyRun route :
