Am I Cleared to Run? Damn Right I Am!!
"I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it
I'm about to lose control and I think I like it
I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it
And I know, I know, I know, I know"

PT couldn't have gone better. Not only is my PT "Finding Nuno" satisfied with my progress, but gym dude "ADHD Dave" is happy as well. Yes, who would have thought that something as simple as stretching and occasional yoga would do the trick? OK, I know, pretty much all of you! ADHD Dave gave me two additional exercises to do, and actually told me I did a good job. Finding Nuno has cut me back to one visit a week, just to monitor my running progress. I also found out that "Hot Chick's" name is Lindsay. She is a PT as well as the aqua therapy babe. I've informed Nuno that should I require additional PT that he is to refer me to Lindsay. I also suggested that aqua therapy would be very beneficial to my running. He didn't buy that. Hey, at least I tried. So I had time to kill after my PT appointment and before I went to work at my one night a week gig at Weight Watchers. I decided to stop by the bowling alley and "look" at bowling balls since my bowling ball is older than most of you reading this (35 years old). The pro shoppe had a very lonely looking ball, with the cutest blue color and named "Pin Slasher."
It was the very last bowling ball of that color and weight. It really needed a new home. Plus it was on clearance for $50 off, and Pro Shoppe Guy said it was a good ball for a 53 year old 162 average guy who wanted to become a better bowler with a ball designed to better grip today's synthetic lanes and therefore produce better scores for a competitive person like myself who wants to win the staff bowling league team championship. Well, those weren't his EXACT words, but you get my point. I just had to buy that bowling ball. It needed a good home, and my New York Giants bowling bag is the perfect home. So, you know the ending to this story. I'll be practicing with "Pin Slasher" tomorrow after work. Make that Wednesday after work. Tomorrow is the return of "Marathonman Runs Again." Watch out Farmington Canal Linear Trail. That slow and steady runner pounding your pavement will be willing to "Perspire to Inspire." By the way, that's part of what you telling me your running words for my February 21st post is all about. But that's all I'm telling you for now...
