i used to like running.....

so i am back in glorious oHIo for christmas. i am missing my bike, so i thought i'd go for a happy little run. like the good old days.

i go out my house in barberton, down hopocan street, pass the beautiful scenerey -- the recycling factory and train tracks. then i go up the hill...that i use to actually think was a hill, but it really isn't. i pass the sokol club (the dodgy sign where there is a slovakian center...with a supposed bowling lane inside....but i have like 4 bowling alleys within a 2 miles radius of my home, so i haven't ever visited this one). then i pass the hopocan gardens; it is a restaurant that is hungarian and they say they have "chicken paprikash" (which makes me laugh because in hungarian it should be spelt paprikas (no h) but pronounced with an h...nitwits. anyways, that place sucks.).

But I digress.... My run. It is about 9 minutes into my run. It is cold and I am already getting the winter ear ache from running outside....i am becoming a california softy. :( At 15 minutes I turn around. At 17 minutes i get so tired i have to stop. I usually am stubborn and never stop, even if I am puking on myself...but it is xmas and i wanted to have a fun run, so stretch a bit. Then i run 2 more minutes...then i get a cramp. then i walk more. Then I suck it up and run all the way home. The longest 30 minute run ever. How am i so weak? I have been a biking a ton!

Next day: i can't walk. i mean, i really can't walk. i am bracing myself going up and down the strairs. my calves and shins KILL and my hamstrings can't even be straightened. this is the most pathetic thing ever. i am sooo sore. i know i haven't run since july and I was booking it for the first half...but, i have been biking a lot i shouldn't be so sore.

Moral of the story: i am not ever running again.... unless i am late for the bus. that will show that stupid sport. i used to like running.... that is until i discovered i could roll everywhere instead! stupid crap.
