Things have been quiet on the workout front. Like real quiet. Like I’ve been buried in though. Imagine Good Glenn on my left shoulder, and Bad Glenn on my right:
Good Glenn: “You know, you’re not getting skinnier by not getting your lazy ass out of the house."
Bad Glenn: “Yeah. That’s true. But I’ve waited for so long. What’s one more day?”
GG: “One more day! You know one of your favorite races is coming up in one month. How can you expect to Run to The Top of Baldy if you don’t get in shape! Like now!”
BG: “Big deal. You can’t afford it anyways.”
GG: “What about starting next week then. Just a couple miles a day like “normal” runners (thinly veiled Lauren reference).”
BG: “Meh. In the meantime, why don’t we watch some tube?”
To which I rolled over and turned the TV on. For whatever reason , the Versus HD network was on (must have been a replay of the 2011 World Series of Poker the night before) and an episode of the Jeep World of Adventure Sports was on. The episode? A replay of the 2007 Western States Endurance Run. This isn’t it, but it does a great job of capturing the “why”:
This, my friends, is what it’s all about. Screw the clock. I just hope I rolled over far enough on my right side…..
