Top 10 list

Things that annoy me:

1. People who try to sound educated by saying, "between you and I."
2. Runners who downplay their training when you know they are doing anything but slacking.
3. Mean people. They really do suck.
4. People who have the time, energy and DESIRE to stick their noses into other people's shit and root around for a good long while. Mmmm Niiice. How 'bout taking a look at some bigger aspect of the world?
5. The band Phish.
6. Radio stations that play the same 5 songs over and over and over and over and over and over and over and ...
7. The foot brace I have to wear with all its Velcro, straps and laces.
8. Anyone who makes huge assumptions based solely on the false ideas that are stuck up his own ass. Hey, eat a prune. Maybe you'll feel better.
9. Not being able to sleep when I'm exhausted.
10. "Healthy Living" blogs that suggest running over 115MPW on average is the perfect example of moderation.

I am also annoyed that my right foot still goes numb every day, but that would make 11 annoyances. 10 is such a nice number for these kinds of exercises, so I won't add that one to my official list for the night.

On the bright side, I got the OK to walk from the doctor. I went outside for 10 minutes today. My foot was sore, but it is coming along. Wow, what a long recovery though.

Enjoy these two random videos, yo.


  1. How many HLBs run over about 15 miles/week in between eating disgusting looking food, though?

  2. True. I don't have a problem with what people do or how much or how little they run. I do have a problem when someone implies that running that much is something normal. I would have the same problem if someone implied that eating Twinkies and sitting on the couch with no exercise is all part of a healthy lifestyle.

  3. In my estimation, an exhaustive search for the three HLBs with the highest average mileage would yield a triumvirate of bloggers whose weekly total rarely exceeds 115. Have you really seen any of these bloggers boast triple-digit totals (cars and bicycles not allowed)?

  4. Well, I've only seen one, but it was definitely under the guise of a Healthy Living blog. Yikes!

  5. Runners who downplay their training would be high on my list. They say to a friend "I only run 3 times a week, 30 ks max per week." "Oh, wow! And you won that 5k in 16:50. If you trained full time you'd be in the 13s." "Yes, I know. But running's just a hobby for me."

  6. Yes! That's exactly what I am talking about. Those people who claim that they are taking it easy, just jogging the race only to hammer it the whole way. "I'm just doing it for fun," and then they get all serious once the gun goes off etc, elbowing people and tearing up the road...OK maybe not quite, but you know what I mean!
