No, just more about running.

Because I don't post about running enough, I purchsed Haruki Murakami's auto-biography which is titled "What I Talk About When I Talk About Running: A Memoir." It's how he refines his prose [Runner's World], which is really neat, and helps keep him fit from all that sitting he does. Did you not know typing doesn't burn many calories?

But man, the sleek hands it builds.

Suffice that the man is a genius and is on my list of people's brains to eat when I become a zombie. You should check out his books, especially Hardboiled Wonderland and the End of The World [Amazon]. Such a cracked-out read.

In case you missed it, and I'm a pusher - obviously - I joined DailyMile. So far, I've convinced two of you to join with my awesome Profile Photos and also found the guy who helped us buy our house, a triathlete.

There are challenges/virtual races on it that are kind of neat - assuming you're creative - like "Outrun the Horde" wherein you post your fastest mile in the parameters.

Remember kids, you don't have to be the fastest runner to survive the Zombie Apocalypse. Just faster than nathan_lounge (who also joined DailyMile).

Jerk.

You should run the Madison Mini Marathon with me.

I don't run!

I do pushups and play softball and may or may not start biking if it stops raining.

But you're already more fit than I am. It'll be great! Free beer for the race finishers.

CLEARLY YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN ME. ESPECIALLY IN VARIOUS STATES OF UNDRESS.

(this is not recommended, by the way)

I've seen your endurance. You drink like an ultramarathoner.

this is true. it doesn't do wonders for my physique, though, so we're trying to balance that a little. and trying not to, you know, die on the softball field.

Running is good for not dying in softball.

running is not good for not dying during running.

You'd be surprised how wrong you are about this.

I'm pretty sure the first thing I'm doing when the zombie apocalypse comes is getting a unilateral and stupid imperative and then devoting the rest of my life to killing zombies in it's persuit. See Woody Harellson in Zombieland.

Also way to pimp the only social networking thing besides LJ that I've taken a shot at using for realz.

I still haven't seen Zombieland!

You should watch it this weekend. I thought it was a lot of fun, and I hate most movies I watch.

Maybe? raaltina is in town for a wedding, plus there's Saturday market and I'm doing an extra mile on my long run just for fun.

Maybe I could buy it, rip it, and watch it on my iPad on the dreadmill....

I feel like I know that name, but don't connect it to a real person.

What are you doing all day today besides gabbing it up with me on lj? There's no reason you aren't watching it. Especially if you can watch it while pooping.

raaltina is a friend of mine from college.

Haruki Murakami is amazing. Full stop.

If you haven't read his Wind-Up Bird Chronicles, you need to borrow my copy now.
