I woke up with a runny nose. Was that a pun? But then, it was runny not running. Conversations with myself went like this today.
Devil Me: "I don't think I have the energy today."
Angel Me: "Oh, I don't know, the weather seem nice enough, besides, you'll feel better after a few blocks."
Devil Me: "I don't know, the legs are super heavy, I don't want an injury."
Angel Me: "OK, I suppose you can make it up at Memorial Park during your lunch today. Maybe 2 loops? Them crushed granite will prevent injury. Most definitely."
Devil Me: "Never mind, I feel good now! I'm going out there to Run!!!"
