Joining the Army

Just a quick shout out to my girl MF for joining the blogging ranks. Give her some love and read up on what my lifestyle could have been if I had stayed put in SF.

Damn Bible Beaters

This is from the NY Times "Dear Diary" column which runs every Monday morning.

Dear Diary:
The other day on the A train, a large man dressed in a camouflage sweatsuit was being grilled by a woman about not going to church enough.

He defended himself, saying he showed his devotion to God through his actions, but the woman wasn't satisfied.

She said he had to go to church to win his place in heaven.

Just then, a young woman about 30 feet away doubled over and collapsed.

The man in camouflage was the first on his feet to help her. He propped her head with his backpack and sat on the floor to hold her hand while he directed others to alert the conductor.

When the train stopped at 14th Street, the conductor announced that there would be a delay for a sick passenger, and the man's church friend rushed across the platform to catch a local train.

Meanwhile, he continued to sit with the young woman, holding her hand.

After the police helped her off (she was a cancer patient), the man put on his earphones and returned to his pew in the greater church of New York.

Green scents

I was down in Philly on Wednesday and Thursday and decided to go for a nice 6 mile run along the Schukyll River. It was the mid 50s or so. And during my run I caught a whiff of the undeniable scent of Spring Green. You know that smell...fresh, pungent, and exact.

Yummy...I'm ready for hiking weather!

I LOVE seasons!

Which is harder?

This weekend I have to:

Do my 20 miles training run.


File my taxes.

I can't decide which will be more difficult.

And in other related news...what do you presume a person is thinking when they send along the following email to a woman they are trying to woo via Internet Dating? Mind you this is a first contact email...

"Good morning! I like your profile and would love to meet you!I am off today and was thinking of going to a spa to relax.Maybe you would like to join me? Michael"

LOL...and the hilarity continues.
