Good grief. Eat a doughnut fer' Oz' sakes! Go run. Burn fat, sugar, or wood ... whatever works. Stretch before during and after if you like. Wear cotton and *** clamps. Get new shoes before a marathon. Debate the merits of lubrication to preempt chubby-chaff. Eat prime rib and ask about "that ammonia smell". Denounce society and go in to the recycling business. Recite poetry whilst you flitter hither and yon. Help stoke "The Tread that would Not Die". Have a mild injury, complain bitterly of about "that nagging subcutaneous itch". Get a new Camelback for your next two mile run. Insult one another and wave your private parts at one another's Aunties (imagine footnote here). Get ready for the fall season ... "Full length spandex, yea or nay?" Write unexpected drivel.

So whatcha saying here, Surf?    That you're bored reading the re.running
drivel?   Huh?  Huh?

I'm sure you realise is that there is no editorial control over these
matters; we have to accept what we get, which may be no bad thing.    Some
posters start poorly and end up as positive treasures.   Some start well,
then tumble into a kind of running/posting abyss from which there appears to
be no escape.   I'm sure you can think of examples from both categories.

The ones I worry about are the bright bunnies who stay for a while then
disappear without warning.   What did we do?   How did we offend?   Or did
the monotony of the average poster all become too much and they hurl the pc
and keyboard down the nearest loo?   Whatever, it's always sad when you lose
a Denny or a Mary or a ............... (fill in your own favourite
ex-rec.runner).

I come here to read the posts of, oh, about five souls.   I have no
intention of naming them lest they become unbearably smug and fail to keep
me amused.  Sometimes someone else says something surprising or interesting,
but mostly it's just nonsense masquerading as information.   Kinda mirrors
real life, no?

Well I wouldn't quite say 'lives', but rec.running *would* be unbearably
dull without your frequent interjections - some of which reduce me tears, of
both laughter and frustration.

So who'dya think the other four are?

If that's true, why don't you just set your newsreader to only show
their posts and leave everyone else alone?

BTW, I'm still waiting to hear whether it was mean, median, or mode that
you thought was inconsistent with average 20 miles/week and having a 20
mile run plus another run during one of those weeks.

Please direct me to the thread where alleged hissy fit must have occurred. Is this east coast David or David who lives near the burnt-yet-fetid-dead-goat-smelling part of Lake Ontario?

Oh, you are a clever one Rog', seeing right through my lard-and-brown-sugar-applied-with-a-shovel-type sarcasm. Yes, this group needs an***, Eminem, or perhaps good rogering.

They were never nominated for an Oscar.

Jenn-e-fir was a rather agreeable read.

Mmm, *** muff old chap, quite right. Pity, real life that is, I have to bob and weave through the flotsam keep my bearings.

Who doesn't like *** clamps? Helps me focus on those really long runs.

Good grief ***a! Do you realize "naw poems matter" is an anagram for
"spatter a new mom"!? You really need help.

Mmm mythologhy. My favorites involve toga parties where three headed beasts
show up only to be slain with olive forks and those little umbrellas you
find in drinks.

Yes, its important to keep your running gear and *** gear separate.

'Cos, unlike you - you insular twit - I like to experience life in totality,
not simply to filter out the bits that conflict with my own world view.
And if I can extend the hand of friendship and empathy to other souls along
the way....

Wait away.   You post was boring when it began and it deteriorated rapidly.
I wiggled my toe in your dirty water for a laugh.   I laughed, now I'm done.
Go away and play with someone else, will you?
