Hey Jack, Don't Be Dick

As I was "running" yesterday I felt like a has been. I aint lying. I tried to "ramp" it up a bit and run a little faster and a little farther than I had on weekly runs. Well this puppy turned into a "Weakly" run if you know what I mean.

I know, I know, It's been going so much better. I know, I know, I ran 47 just a few days ago. I know, I know, I'm still 10 pounds over last year's weight. I know, I know, it was the hottest day we've had so far in 2009. But still, I felt like a "Has Been."

Well, as I was on my 6th of the 9 miles I ran, my old buddy Bill Shatner came on my I-Pod singing the song "Has Been," and I was grousing, until the very end when he croons, "Has Been, implies failure, not so! Has been implies once was, and Might Again!"

Ok, I'll take that, and I'll give you this!

Dean,
Perhaps you are right and you will never fade away, but that's because you're book, while not actually factually accurate, will live on with ultra-runners because it's a wonderful tale.

As for you're chips, if you send 'em I'll eat 'em, but pay for them, I think not!

I'm jealous and you're . .

A- How do you think a millionaire like me got to be a millionaire like me? It was NOT by giving away chips. Buy them!

Hey Andy, how's the cross training going? You can join us for a 45-mile ride tomorrow if you want to feel like a cyclist Has-Been...

Star, Ouch! Happily, I'll be Kayaking with my BLF instead of yaking with you!

I think I'm not a has-been as a cyclist, I'm just retired as a never was.
