Run Cut Short

I don’t quit runs. I push through until the end. There is no time for dying. Yesterday though, after a mile I had to stop. What the hell?? The sun was fiery and the air felt like the bathroom after a long hot shower. I walked back home in defeat. The laughter of the children as they played outside felt like it was directed at my failure. The universe mocked me.

When I got home I realized it was 94 degrees. I would like to know when I up and moved to COLUMBUS GEORGIA!! It looks like Lansing outside but this sure don’t feel like home. And let me tell you with the humidity as it is 94 degrees in Lansing is like 104 in West Texas.

I miss the blustery cold winds, the drifting snow, and the thrill of uncertainty you get when the vehicle you’re in hits black ice and you spin round and round, the chances ever greater that you will either tumble to your doom or be tossed out the window into a wintry refreshing snowbank. I miss spooning with Frosty the Snowman. I miss the 1980s and the immenent threat of a nuclear winter. I miss hockey though I never played it. I miss football in October. I hate the fucking heat.

How far north does a Mexican have to go?

    hahahahahahha… classic last line.

    any further north and it’s time to don the ice skates, stick n puck. and that wouldnt’ be bad.

    some advice, run either before 8 in the morning or after 8 at night. It’s the only way. one wakes you up, one helps you sleep at night.

    Sucks to be you. Come to Monterey Cali-our year round avg temp is 67 degrees and it never snows, rarely rains, and is beautiful.

    I don’t want beautiful. I want overcast and misty, cool winds and thunder rumbling in the distance. That’s my favorite weather.

  4. R says:

    Are you serious? It was only 94 degrees out there? Hell, in my day I’d be running in 103 degree weather with humidity out the ass.

    94 degrees is what they call the beginning of summer here in Alabama.

    Shut up. I been to Alabama. When I was there the locals were sweating it out too.

  6. HMT says:

    I agree that somewhat misty and thunder claps are sweet… but only in small to moderate doses.. You become addicted to perfect weather in Cali, perhaps somewhat spoiled, but it makes you a happier person I think.

    fuck it, why don’t you just punch god in the balls and MAKE him change the weather?

    Hey Mexi, Georgia weather was rather pleasant today. 77 degrees with a light rain around lunch time. Too bad you got our weather and we got yours. Just breaks my little heart.

    Bah. Nothing but queers and hippies in Seattle. And I run on a treadmill, where it is always a nice 72 degrees and 30 percent humidity.
