When is the last time you ran?

I was talking to a friend of mine and I asked this… when is the last time you ran?  I mean, seriously ran?

As kids we run everywhere!  We can’t get anywhere fast enough!  Up the stairs, down, in the house, out… always hearing, don’t run in the house!  Don’t run on the deck!  Walk beside the pool.

Unless you are involved in a sport, or you are a jogger… when is the last time YOU ran?  Not to the store… not for office, but really ran?

I can’t even remember… unless it was a couple of years ago.  I rode my bike out too far, got a flat and dark was coming on.  I realized at that time that your body uses completely different muscles to run than biking or walking!  🙂  I bike… I walk… don’t get me wrong, I’m not a slug… but run?  I don’t even run for buses now..much.

Would I even know how to run?  Gawp!  Would my arms be flailing and legs all akimbo?  lol  Just a thought.  Heh.


Jumble of Thoughts

Just some things that are on my mind – and it doesn’t take much to fill it, so occasionally I must empty!  lol

1.  Why would the Toronto Star publish an article saying that they have the first picture of the *first mass appearance of the Black Bloc* on the weekend of the G20 – outside of the police station…. (August 21, 2010 page IN3)  I mean, I have videos and pictures from Allan Gardens…. before the march began.  The pictures and videos are of them getting changed into the black attire they are so well known for, and people with them shooing away anyone with a camera.   I’m sure others have this documentation too.  I heard the police beside me discussing them… as they walked past me on the march.  This was on Friday, before all the problems – they could have stopped this.  Sigh.

2.  If police here are so interested in stopping drag racing, then why don’t they keep tabs on them on the net?  There are websites where these drivers all chat and they discuss when and where their next meet is… If I can find these sites, why aren’t the police?  Twice we’ve called them to report these activities… and twice no police car has shown up.

These ones
And these ones

3.  I think a new wave has hit Toronto…. Twice today on my bike someone in a car randomly screamed out the window at me.  Not words, nothing like that…. one person, a younger fella, just screamed out the passenger window, and not twenty minutes later, and older gentlemen, driving yelled BANG out his window.  Just things to startle a biker… And that’s not a very nice game at all.  How will they feel if they startle someone so bad that they wipe out and die?  Is this Rob Ford induced mania?

Just stuff…. circling around in my noggin.

What a Gorgeous Morning!

Don’t you just love waking up in the sun?  Luxurious!!!!

When that happens I never get up right away – I just lay about, flopping this way and that, stretching, enjoying it.

A new day – going to get some bike riding in again…. we’re having such wonderful weather!
