I ran today. What a stupid idea!
I don't like running. I believe that you should only run away from things (like evil trees) or towards things (like the bus that's pulling away). Running for the sake of running is just silly. However. Today I took my puppy for a walk, and on the way home, she wanted to run. I figured we'd run for a few steps, maybe a minute or so, then she'd get pooped and want to walk again. I was wrong. We ran all the way home. (Except when we slowed down because she ran across a grate and partly fell through because she's got little feet. I have little feet, too (that's another story), but they're big enough not to fall through the grate.)
I'm now all hot and sweaty and shaky. It's not fun. Also, asthma sucks ass.
I'm going to resubscribe to my dad's heartbeat theory: You are born with a limited number of heartbeats. Don't waste them on something silly like running.
