While I was running…

First off, these posts are not going to be all prettified with photos or awesome layout or any of that nonsense. WordPress has some funkiness that can make getting it just right time consuming and frustrating.  I’m just going to type and post. Anyway…

I really hate running and every time I get dressed out to runn (minor victory) and out the door (second minor victory) and home again without a heart attack (major victory) I think “I wish I had something to listen to besides what I have to listen to.”  Help me out here and send along a playlist that’s at least 15 minutes long, but not too much more than 45 minutes long for me to download and add to things I already listen to. Give your playlist a name, and I’ll give play list shout outs as well.

I’m looking forward to  your support and participation.  I’d be really happy if you and all your friends came to Austin and ran the Mudder with me.  But I’ll settle for your encouragement here.

I was watching football this afternoon (Dallas 20, Cinci 19) and I saw an advertisement for a thing called the Fluidity Bar.  It’s basically a bar mounted on a rack that allows you to do various strength training exercises…ok, go here and see for yourself. Words do not begin to do this justice.  This got me to thinking about the movie Ruthless People with Danny DeVito and Bette Middler, who uses a broomstick and two chairs to the same effect.  The fluidity bar is $405 (a $706 value!) and the broom stick ..depends on if you want a Swiffer or not.  The fluidity bar folds flat and can be stored under your bead and the broomstick can be stored where ever you store your brooms.  I’m going to explore the broomstick idea and see if I can make the broomstick concept work to my advantage.  I’ll keep you posted how that goes.

As things get going, I’m probably post separately giving shout outs to those who participate, but for now I want to give the biggest, bestest shout out possible to my chica H.R. Thomas (and little man B).  She is my first donor, and as such gets a special gift from me.  Once I figure out what to give her.

It’s a good thing I don’t run very far.  I can only listen to myself talk for so long.
