    Run

    I had a great 5 mile run this morning. It was made better by the fact that I found a dollar bill and a Gerber 600 multi purpose tool. It is good to run!

    I wish I could WALK a continuous 5 miles, even with my cane. But, I still have more blessings than I could ever deserve.

    I ran/walked a little less than 2mi yesterday. It was nice to get back to running after years of a lazy student lifestyle. Did you carry while running? If so what and how and describe the comfort level, please.

    Was someone chasing you or did you lose a bet?

    Yeah, but did you find a dollar?

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    I sat in the lawn chair and watch a leaf get blown across the yard. It was brown and crackly.

    Did you have a mint julup in your hand as you cheered the leaf on?

    I jumped to a conclusion this morning. That is all the exercise I got today.
    I busted a mirror and got seven years bad luck, but my lawyer thinks he can get me five.

    Did you notice the hidden camera..........

    Put there by a behavioral psychology student who was replicating the study that shows
    NO ONE will stop to pick up a penny or a nickle
    15% of people will stop to pick up a quarter
    95% of people will stop to pick up a dollar

    ????????

    The Gerber was probably dropped by the student when he was setting up his hidden camera..........

    I am feeling pretty brown and crackly right now.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    Why'd you let someone chase you for 5 miles. This is a self defense forum.

    I did a 5K this past weekend. It was the hilliest run I've ever done. I didn't find anything on the road, but I did beat several people who were half my age...

    God invented vehicles so you don't have to run or walk long distances. God also invented helicopters so you don't have to climb mountains or rocks.
