Running & Blogging
So, I'm poking around looking at what happened today and wondering what I'm going to blog about and I'm having this problem. I can't read any of it. i mean I tried to read the Bono column, I really did. But I couldn't. Besides, apparently everyone hates it already, so I don't really have to. Plus, reading that column just reminds me of hopping around my bedroom when I was in high school singing along to a song on October that went, "On the side, of a hill, blood was spilled, we were filled, with a looooove....and we're going back there....Jeruuuuusalem...." when suddenly, it hit me, this was no "Two Hearts Beat As One," unless I got that song all wrong, too. And I was a huge- HUGE--U2 fan back in the day. I still count some of their songs as guilty, guilty, irresistible pleasures. But that's not the point. The point is that I couldn't read Bono's colum or Maureen Dowd's about Tim Geithner who apparently didn't pay his housekeeper and then there was something about the Clinton's.....couldn't get through it -- and I think here's why: At 9:30 this morning, I ran for 25 minutes on an indoor track. Now, I'm tired. Very, very, very tired. It's a little pathetic, but there it is. Now I'm working for the day whan a 30 minute run energizes me. I'm thinking, if I keep it up, April. Maybe I'll be able to read something by then, too. In the meantime, sleep well everyone!
