47? Try Not to Run any on the Way Home!




Like Dante said in the excellent movie Clerks (not Clerks II, there was no inter-species erotica in the original), "47?! You're gonna be 47? Try not to run any miles on the way home!" I think that's what he said, and I think that was the subject matter.

Anywho, On Tuesday, one week from today I'll be turning 47, hence, annual birthday run. Last year I ran 46 with the help of Woody and Becky I think. This year A2, the Professor and I have signed up. The run will be on Monday, why? It's Labor Day and if the run goes anything like the last two, I'll be laboring.










Yall come on out now. We'll be starting at Gulp, 1 AM. Yoikes!










After the run come on over for brew and burgers at the annual Labor Day Croom and Que.

It'll be a hoot!

And Most Importantly, It's Ali's 14th Birthday today. Her Mommy, Mr. Jeff, and I are taking her out for Sushi, yum, yum! On Sunday she got to go see these dudes with the Good Doctor and I, it sure was fun! Er, only slightly less fun than running 47 miles!

Sorry Andy, but I must say Happy birthday to Ali today !!!!!!!!!!

First things first ! : )

AndyMan said...

Er, yeah, Ali is running 14 miles today (- 13 miles).

Happy Birthday Ali. 14!

Chase Squires said...

Why on earth are you starting at 1 a.m.? Ack ...

Think I'll pass on that one! Say, at least no one will steal your entry fee on this run!

Roger said...

Why arn't you running 14 for Ali? Come on dude! 47 + 14 = 61 bone crunching miles in the Florida heat and humidity.

If you don't, I hate to say it but... you're a...Slacker.

FYI, you're companions are not, in any way, bound to the "I must run my daughters miles" requirement.

Drop and give me 61 !

AndyMan said...

Roger you are right, perhaps I'll run 14 today, yes, I'll do that, then I'll stick with the 47 on Saturday.

The Professor said...

In 22 years your birthday is gonna be a HOOT!!!

Oh yeah, A2 isn't allowd to lead during the run on account of his fast time at Vermont. We want to actually, ya know, finish all the miles not dead.

40 days till I get to meet SuperDave!!!

I'm looking forward to it, Professor (and maybe I'll have Andy's present by then).

AndyMan said...

Present, I don't deserve a present (but I do like coffee, books, movies, Scotch and walks on the beach)

As for running in 22 years, how about we do it in 21 years and I'll owe you one!

Star said...

Hey, who knows...I may even have A BEER to help you celebrate!

Oh, and since you're not into that diet thing anymore, should I also bring my Chocolate Kahlua cheesecake with 47+14 candles?

AndyMan said...

Star if I have anymore cheesecake I'm gonna explode. Well shoot, gimme a fork and stand the heck back!

superdave524 said...

Aw, come on. You could have one small wafer.

Happy B-day, A-man! Sorry can't run with you, I'm doing the Tupelo, MS, marathon on Sunday. The motto of the marathon is hurdle the dead and trample the weak. Not sure which one I'll be, but I will finish!
