exercise

every does it. even me! last night i hit the gym with eragon - wanted to finish it - plus, due to my new found friend heather i need to start training for a 5k. my time so far... an hour. yeah, i need to speed it up some. i managed to run for .25 mile of it. i could have maybe run another .25 mile but it's hard to read and run at the same time and when given the choice, reading wins. i wonder if that will ever change.

anyway, while i was there i observed a very interesting fellow lifting weights. well, his appearanc was interesting. he was wearing a blue and black flannel shirt - long sleeved, like for hunting or camping. he had on long black cargo style pants and what appeared to be birkenstocks, or sandals of a similar nature. he had a black floppy hat on his head. as i watched him he went over to the scale to weigh himself. he shed everything but the shirt and pants. i noticed that he did leave on a little hat that must have been underneath the floppy hat. it kind of looked like a jewish yamukah (sp joseph?) but it had ridges like the kind catholic priests wear. anyway, it was little and on the crown of his head and black. oh, he also had shoulder length hair and with the floppy hat removed i could see he was missing quite a bit on top. wait, now that i think about it, he looked a lot like a guy i saw there months ago in a tie dyed t-shirt, shorts, knee length socks, and yamukah. (i know i must be spelling that wrong.) anyway, the really odd thing - why i'm blogging about him - is that this morning (my usual gym time) i saw him again! he was dressed identically to last night. this morning he was busy searching for some coins he must have dropped.

yep, everyone exercises. we all have bodies. they must be used.

Are you doing the 5K a week from tomorrow? Chris and I have been training for that one (though he kicks my butt around Sugarhouse Park). Come run with us if that's the case, eh?

no that 5k is WAY too soon! another friend nearly has me convinced to do race for the cure. do you and chris run? do you make better time than my hour? i'd love to hit sugarhouse with you guys some time - tell me when. or i'll just ask him tonight at bbq and bluegrass.

I'm so proud of you! I trained for a 5K last fall, and my best time was 39 minutes, but I thought I was going to DIE at the end. I can do a quite comfy 45 minute walk/run 5K. So you'll shave time off no prob! Good luck!

We're about twice as fast as you. Chris is faster'n me. But today we went for a 5 mile run. Baby steps, baby steps ...
