My Shadow Is Buff

i was feeling rather portly the other day and decided to go running. I didn't go for the reason most people would think of. i didn't go because logically you can lose weight if you exercise. i ran because i knew it was 5:30 and the sun was low in the sky. on my route this would stretch my shadow out so i would look very tone for the whole run. i am deeply into tricking my mind. i really do start to think by the end of the run that that is really how i look. it is amazing how a shadow really smooths out all the not quite so perfect spots on your body. usually that and not the actual physical exercise makes me feel good. kind of weird huh?

Yes, it is weird but we are all weird and it will only work as long as your buffer father is not running along beside you and you see how much more buff your ancient father is. Of course I have a better coach than you. Faster, Appy, faster!

I go running so I can think angry thoughts and work out my agression. Sometimes I envison little confruntations between me and people I don't like and think o all the nasty things I want to say to them. But other times I just run to zone out and be all quiet inside.

portly? wth?

by the way, that's fairly awesome. If you only *felt* portly then doing something like is just a way of course correcting that feeling, because I don't think you could touch portly with a 10 foot pole.
