11 miles. 8x400 80,79,76,76,77,76,76,74. felt fine on the first few, but when i wanted to start dropping it down i got stuck on 76. i was looking to hit a few more 74s, then finish at 72. i put in a good effort but it just didnt happen. still, it was a quality workout. as usual we refueled at dillos, and there was an unexpected appearance by nick cash's sweatshirt (awesome). after that, greg and chirp came over and got to know kenny powers. then we made a great decision to mix in some additional chromium replacement, and i realized how much i hate birdbaths. kenny is right. maybe not about the aids thing, but definitely the plague. well, i guess not that either. but he is right that birdbaths are the stupidest thing ever made. when did we decide we needed to be friggin bird samaritans? yeah, their shit gets everywhere, but the birds themselves are fine. they dont really smell like anything. i dont see why we feel compelled to help birds keep clean when theres way too many people walking around out there that smell like a race day port a john five minutes before the gun. yes, i do realize that i deuced my pants a few months ago, and it smelled bad, but i was RUNNING! its not like i was going to pick up some bread at the store! these people are the worst. its horrible. im out running (and not sharting), and i pass someone on the sidewalk, and they smell so bad i get the urge to throw up on them. after i somehow hold back the impulse, i realize that throwing up on them may have IMPROVED their current scent (implied nick cash). consider this: a full-sized, shit-covered, vomit-saturated human poses a far more severe threat to the environment (and our nostrils) than a two pound bird that has been sitting on a branch all day with a brisk breeze freshening it all the way down to its underfeathers. this is where we realize that its not birdbaths that we need, but person baths! just have them out there next to the sidewalk, complete with soap and paper towel dispensers. not only does this improve air quality worldwide, it also lowers the unemployment rate. i mean, someone is gonna have to change the water and refill those dispensers. problem solved. jobs created. modern day new deal. what up, fdr? dont know what im talkin bout? you can find that shit in any 8th grade history book. ridiculous, i think not. just another wednesday. church.
