windshield wipers slappin’ time

I’ve seen a tempo run, and that’s not what it looked like.

OK, I don’t recall ever seeing a tempo run. But I did see Pee-Wee’s Big Top, and Kris Kristofferson’s portrayal of the circus chief forever tainted my world view on Me and Bobby McGee. So I’m thinking that’s close enough.

I was going out with the wind (not to be confused with Gone With the Wind, the Pee-Wee movie in which Kris Kristofferson portrays Scarlett, forever tainting my world view of Lady GaGa and Tony Bennett dueting), so I knew the run wasn’t going to make much sense. I just ran the first one hard, hung on for the second and then suffered through last two. Not suffering as in Tw0 Lane Blacktop, the Pee-Wee Herman movie in which Kris Kristofferson portrays James Taylor as a nomadic drag racer hanging out with a Beach Boy, forever tainting my world view on just who wrote which song, but suffering nonetheless. So it was sort of a tempo, just front-loaded. Or something.

I switched to Meb, which totally cured the ice pick on the outside of the knee. But now the inside of the knee hurts. My knees are very particular. I’ll try the 110s tomorrow, the mama bear of the running family. We’ll see.

Just another reminder that two bowls of ice cream and three Halloween cookies might not be enough nutrition before a hard run. Who knew.

Sad to think that when the Hallmark movie is finally made, my scenes will be written out altogether. Oh, well. Maybe I’ll be in the Pee-Wee Herman remake, portrayed by an aging Kris Kristofferson, forever tainting my world view of myself. Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose …
