A Short Story

January 6, 2012


A short story….. I went on a run. To sum it all up, I was trying for 100 miles, I made it only 6.52 miles. So it was a horrible failure in many respects. I desperately need to pick another route if I am going to run around dinner time. At approx 0.42 miles into […]

(helped by the fact cable tv is shut off) That is a disgusting average of just over twelve minutes per mile…so much effort for very blase number. 1,089 […]
