No Tricks Here!

I thought I could make a Running Commentary Post, because I went for a run after work.  Then as I was running, I thought, “This isn’t going to make a very good blog post.”  It did not seem to be making a very good run.  However, one must get through the crap runs on the way to the good ones.

In some ways it was not a bad run at all.  Most of the sidewalks were bare.  The sun was shining.  It was warm enough to run in shorts and short sleeves. In short, what was I complaining about?

Not exactly what it looked like today.

I wanted to put a picture of something I ran by.  I took this one of Meyers Park in Herkimer, NY earlier this year.  There is a little more snow now, although it is melting.  I am still trying to figure out what I was complaining about.  Oh, I remember now.  I was disappointed that my run was not more memorable.

Additionally, I was a little discouraged by my huffing and puffing.  I ran Saturday and Sunday, and walked on Monday.  I have been walking and/or running most days since the beginning of the year.  Shouldn’t I be getting better at it?  When I was in the army, I loved running, because I magically got better at it.  All I had to do was do it.  Maybe there is some trick to it now that I am older.  Still, I was in my 30’s when I joined the army.  That’s pretty old in army years.

There may be a trick to making a better blog post, too.  Once again, I don’t know it. But I shall persevere.  Once again I thank you for tuning in.

  1. Agreeing with your sentence about going through crap runs to get to better ones. At least you’re trying and running. Also I’m liking that your picture and your mention of the word bare remind me of the curious movie Cocaine Bear (especially its gazebo scene).

  2. It was great seeing the picture of the gazebo where the Chowdown takes place. We got a call from your Mayor to play there again this summer. I’ll give you the date when I know. Hope to see you and your motley gang there. We’ve also got 2 dates for the Ilion Food Truck Frenzy. I’ll let you know. You impress the hell out of me with your runs and walks. I seriously can’t walk to the end of the driveway. More in that later. ❤️
