Every once in a while it's good to get fired up when you run.
Used to date a lady a long time ago, one of us was always mad at the other, we had a lot of fast runs back then! Could have been that we were younger, I think it was the conversation.
Memories of that came flooding back last night as I ran with two acquaintances. We were just chugging along, nothing special. Then we did something one should rarely do in a social setting, we talked politics. Yoikes! Bad idea (well good if you are looking for speed work.)
Anyway, turns out Rush, Sean, Drudge, Snitch (er Schnit, Schmidtz, whatever his name is) their bullshmitz rhetoric is still working on large quantities of the uninformed (Gee I didn't know that O'bama was a Muslim Terrorist, oh, really and who told you that?) (Oh, the anti-christ, wow, how does he feel about separation of anti-church and state?)
Like I said, politics, ugg! I should know better! But I did run those last two miles in about 14 minutes and I left before the brews were cracked, so there was no temptation there. Next week I'm running with the "Young Christian Skin Heads For War but Against Interracial or Same Sex Anything" I hope to get my mile time down under 6 minutes again!
