Run, Forest, Run!

When I run, I like to pretend I'm Forest Gump. Just tooling about at a nice pace, making progress. Hair and beard catching the wind. When I look at my shadow, it kinda looks like Gump -- you can see how my beard makes the edges of my face bigger and less defined. You can see my long hair (which I don't put in a pony tail when I run) falling over my shoulders. You can see my ball cap holding it all together. It's kinda funny.

I should get me a "Bubba Gump" trucker's hat.

I think you should take a picture of your shadow and post it for us to see.

Yeah, I was looking at that one earlier today. I thought Forest wore a trucker's cap instead of a ball cap when he ran, but after seeing the offerings at the store, I'm not so sure anymore. A picture from the movie indicates that he's wearing the ball cap....

hmmm, my imagination works differently, i guess
When I run, I like to pretend I'm the Flash. Just zipping about at a breathtaking pace, making sonic booms. Hair and beard catching the lightning. When I squint at my shadow, it kinda looks like a blur.

Heheheh. I'm a bit more realistic -- I'm not doing anything close to sprinting when I run. So I'm going the distance.... ;-)

Imagination needs not have anything to do with reality - that's the beauty of it!

I wish I had time for running (or anything physical beyond mowing the yard) on a regular basis. Tonight's gym night, I guess I should be happy for that.
