Fdip170: Thoughts from the Road

I don’t want to make a big deal out of it, but the anniversary of my first breath on this planet’s ocean of oxygen takes place on the 19th of this month, just a few days after this show is available for download.  It was of course 9 full months prior that I first came to be; and have been growing into a more complex organism ever since.

As my complexity increases, so do the ideas that get formed in my admittedly teeny tiny little brain…and like a balloon in the state of inflation, if I don’t get some of these ideas…both good, bad and frankly quite silly…out of the skull within which they are formed…well, like a balloon, something’s going to pop….and I don’t think you want to be left having to clean up the mess.

Thus we have an episode of this goofy little podcast dedicated to things not necessarily related to running; but let’s go for a run today, you and I…and I’ll do the talking about things that I’m thinking about…the thoughts, opinions, and observations that a soon to be 47 year old fellow runner congers up on a long run.

So let’s go for a run today.  Let’s forget, for a moment, that this is a podcast, and that you’re listening to me with your ear bugs jammed in your head…consider that I’m just like you: although I’m betting you’re a little bit faster, healthier and undoubtedly better looking….and that we’re just going out for a run together.  The world is moving on, increasing in velocity as the planet revolves, and orbits, and moves outward ever forward…bringing us specs of life with it; and while there’s no possibility or reason to ever stop that motion let’s go for a run today and create a little motion of our own….just you and me and that long road before us.  Let’s go for a run.
