It's a beautiful day.

I've got to run.

Runners

Not like that. But why don't you?

I won't run, because my knees would hate me in the morning.

The only thing I ever run is a tab

I used to run that path all the time. The girls in the sportsbras running motivated me to get out there and I lost some good weight.

It's all back now that I'm 2000 miles away from Lakeshore Path.
:(

I wish I could run my mouth a bit at my boss.

hdhouse said...

nice picture. something in it for everyone.

i would love to run there but the path looks too narrow for good ambulance parking.

Sounds like a good recommendation - it's very nice out in Southern California.

But not right now, alas. As FDR liked to say at the end of his meetings, "I'm sorry, I have to run."

I won't run, because my knees would hate me right there and then.

I ride an old Trek mountain bike 20 miles round trip from Brown Deer to Cedarburg every day on the Inter-urban trail.

I'm not looking forward to the inevitable end of summer.

Run, heck. I'm with Michael, I ride to work most days. In contrast to running, it's actually fun. There's also the enhanced people-watching opportunities that come with covering 15 miles each way...

A bad day outside is much better than a good day outside.

(But a really bad day outside is much, much worse).

Run?! Why not Trikke?

MadisonMan said...

I'm also a bike commuter, and it sure does beat running. Except when there's snow on the ground. Then I retreat to the bus.

Ann, the 9/11 thread is frozen -- at least when I try to read it. Give it a nudge.

Here's another Trikke fitness video....it beats the heck out of jogging or riding a bike. ;) I ride mine between 9 and 11 miles a day.

Ditto.

Running is great! Until I get injured. Which always seems to happen eventually.

Also, I have to avoid eating for several hours before runs, and that takes some of the fun out of the running experience.

After a few years one comes to realize that maybe there are good reasons why few old people run.

At first when I saw the Running Hottie I thought I had mistyped and gone to Instapundit instead. But he's much better at screening out male college students from his campus pics.

Ah yes, jogging the Lakeshore path. I started running again in college after a layoff, and I began a several-years running program right there. Started out from the old Lakeshore dorm with Aerosmith's "Sweet Emotion" running through my head. Running out to Picnic Point and back is something to be experienced.

Just not in winter.

I may be in Seattle but know that UW trail very well. Beautiful spot.

Smilin' Jack said...

Reminded me of many pleasant runs in my grad student days along that path from the Red Gym out to Picnic Point.

Also of my weakness for redheads with Afros...yum!

My nose is running.

Stupid pollen.

Ron said...

My feet would go all Ft. Sumpter on the rest of me, my knees would turn Monitor and Merrimac on each other, and The House That Is Me Could Not Stand Divided, so I would carpetbag to the sofa. No, I'm afraid my running days are Gone With The Wind...but, frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn!

That chick is hot and superfast! Look at the dirt wake she left!
