    Endless trails

      That was really cool to read. The first 3 parts were funny, but then part 4 started

      the outside, when in reality we just need to focus on the inside.


      Thanks for posting this, good stuff. I've had the pleasure of being on some nasty runs

      where I'm asking myself; "why am I doing this?" This person captures the 'why' quite

        I like the straw insert into the Nutella.  I have a find a way to do that.  Although a spoon works just fine.


        Thanks for sharing this.  Fun to read.


        Faster Than Your Couch!

          I agree, fun to read, and some wisdom in it, too!

          Run for fun.

              "defeated the Kraken" - love it Smile  I don't run to eat, but I've found that running does enable me to eat like a teenager, albeit a little healthier, but nonetheless I eat a lot and don't mind that perk one bit

                  Seriously! I always have such great ambitions for cleaning on the weekends, and after long runs it's just me + couch + beer.  AKA the return of the Blerch.
