Confession of a Running Blogger
i'm not a gear-head. When it comes to my car and motorcycle, i usually have someone who is handy work on my machines. However, there is one thing i learned about engines when deciding on new pipes for the Harley. See, baffles not only restrict noise but also the air flow, hence loud pipes for after market piping, and so loud pipes do more than save lives, people may not see me, they will hear me. Loud Pipes provide speed.
If any machine is to operate faster. The faster air goes in, and the faster air goes out; the faster the machine.
Well, in this 101st post of my running thoughts of a runner, i've got to come clean to those who read this blog and do not realize that i started running, trained for a marathon, and completed a marathon while maintaining about a half a pack a day smoking habit.
It was just easier to keep smoking.
I remember a college vocal professor had a hand written sign posted on his office door. I never took music classes, but was a member of the music fraternity, ...sad....but social. Anyway, the sign read...
"you can be a smoker who sings, but you can't be a singer who smokes"
I guess some of that statement rings true, cause today i feel like a smoker who runs...
So i am in day 2, of not smoking. Day one was easy, today is a little rough. A big question right now. Is my addiction stronger than my commitment to running faster?
Holy Death Wish vs. Life Wish Scenario Bat-Freud!!!
Anyway, wish me luck, Great American Smoke Out is right around the corner.
