I don't know what I was thinking

So on Saturday a student organization here on campus called PSR (Physicians for Social Responsibility) put on a 5k run. For some reason I decided I was going to run. Maybe it was because I have a bunch of friends that organized the event, maybe it was because it was being held on the nature trail behind the school that I helped develop. For what ever reason I am still not sure if I enjoyed it. The run was about 2 miles on road/paved bike path and the rest on the trail. There were probably 40-50 people doing the 5k and the 1 mile walk. I guess I kind of just wanted to see how I would do. People keep telling me that I have the perfect build for a long distance runner, and while 5k certainly isn't considered long distance I thought I would give it a shot. When I told Eugena that I was running she first laughed then mocked....and that was probably logical response. I think this year I may have ran maybe 5 times, with the longest run being about a 7 miler. So I'm not a runner, big deal. It hasn't caught my attention yet. So to get to the point I ran the race and did the 5k in 20:45. So not too bad, I took 5th overall and 2nd in my age division. Now eugena is trying to convince me to train and run a marathon at the end of April 07 in Kentucky. We'll see, I'm still not conviced I like this, or I'm that good at it. Plus what would the Moots think if he/she (haven't decided yet on the gender) saw me running...

a few items-
The Moots is a girl. I'm no doctor, but trust me on this one. It is way too sexy to be a guy, or something is severly wrong with me.

Also, ditch the running thing. Running is for sissies and communists. Why run, when you have a bike or a car. Why do you think we invade oil rich nations? So we no longer have to run places. All I know is when I look around and see who is running it's the part in their hair, short shorts, "I am studying accounting" kids. Don't be like them. You are better than that.

The thing is kellen, if the moots is a girl, would I be cheating on my wife with another female entity??? I do spend quite a bit of time with the bike... Secondly I can't believe you are calling Eugena a sissy because she ran a marathon, I want to see your cracker butt at the marathon April 28th in Louisville...In fact make that a challenge from one brother to another. We are in direct competition with each other, the winner will be praised and the loser will be mocked until my voice is sore...Fight, fight, fight, fight
