Musings of a Mule

Is it wrong to not go out for a run when the American flag is flying sideways?

Is it wrong to be warm and comfortable?

And is it really all that wrong to just curl up by the fire for the morning with a cup of coffee and a good book?

Apparently it is wrong.  The nut job is on his way over to pick me up for our Sunday morning run.  The thermometer reading is 17  (minus 1  with the wind chill).

It's hell being a runner.

Nut Job Update:

Though no major nut job incidents in January have yet been reported, Baba the Freak has earned a few minor points.

He received his first nut job point by getting a haircut at Sully's and then walking off without paying for it (rumor has it, Sullivan's Barber Shop now has a prepay policy).

Then he scored a half point by showing up for a run with two left gloves.  Kind of a feeble attempt at the 2011 Nut Job of the Year award, but hey, it's a start.

Have you done anything "nut job worthy" lately?  Let me know so I can pass the information on to the judges.  Let's get those nut job points rolling.


  1. Mule: Would you like a little cheese with that whine? Sunday was a summer day at the beach, today was a real Nut Job Runners day! 3 degrees with a wind chill of -9 degrees. Worked all night in the salt mines then ran on the treadmill for a bit then met Sean for a brisk 6 plus miles in Youngstown along the Lake. Some special parts got a little chilly but nothing can top the morning constitutional that Sean had to stop and take in the open air! Bracing eh?

    The Cannibal

  2. Shiva is ready to pass the Golden Squirrel on to you for your efforts. Shiva was all warm and toasty in bed.

  3. Wow, that Sean is a fearless guy. We may have to tell the squirrels about him.

  4. bahhhhhhh, pretenders, lets not get carried away, we all know who the rightful keeper of the "Squirrel" is! Yes my Precious, not long my precious! Just have patience.
