I don’t think Bernadette Peters was actually playing that trumpet

Mo, who hates Muskrat Love more than anyone on the planet, sucked it up and sported a tattoo today on her flight to Phoenix. Surely you could do the same. Just sayin ...

Totally trashed today. The first time I’ve worried about the 15-minute cutoff. And four walkers were taking up the entire track. And the sprinklers kept going off randomly, seemingly aiming for me. And Superstar had some 20-somethings out with soccer balls, trying to nail me.

Barely 14:30-minute miles and just desperately dead body. So tired. But mentally slipped into the 24-hour shuffle. I can autopilot that pace all day long. Or at least all hour long. Or at least I could today.

Mo’s gone for five days, so I likely will sleep in tomorrow and that will be that. But today at least I survived. And at 3 1/2 miles, Freddie Mercury said he was gonna rock me. What more could you ask than that?

Anybody who thinks they can outlast me should have been there today. They’d be worried now.

today’s run

  • 4.2 miles — 1:00.22 (14:22-116) 65 degrees, track

    I’m sorry you’re knackered, Garbo. Suck it up and run some more. =) Just got to do it by yourself for five days and then you’ll have Mo back to prod you. You can’t give up already anyway, we’re only 2 1/2 weeks in. That ain’t nuttin’!

    I’m loving Mo’s tattoo. =) I hope she has a safe, happy trip. And I hope you do ok without her there. It totally sucks having one’s spouse bugger off for a week. I feel your pain.

    Freddy’s the man. Pity he’s the dead man, really. But I guess that’s just the kind of guy you want serenading your dead man’s shuffle, eh? Gosh. That might actually be slightly witty.

    Bernadette says that “time heals everything”. I see the problem, it was the cold front you are suffering through! It was 15 with a balmy feels like of 2 here tonight, oh and snow.

    Are you sure Mo’s in Phoenix and not leading a revolution in Baja Arizona? It doesn’t seem like a coincidence that Mo goes to AZ and then there’s talk of a 51st state.
