About 15 months ago I took up running... I did it to whip myself into shape, to re-energize myself, to challenge myself, and to cross marathon off my bucket list... I hit the pavement with a passion and quickly fell head over heels in love with running; I was infatuated!!!
For months and months I gave my life to running... I didn't eat - I fueled... I didn't drink - I rehydrate... polyester became my go to fabric of choice (and not just for pickin' up the ladies)... I read blogs, magazines, websites, forums, and even books about running...
And that's when I found my new passion... sitting around on my ass!!!
A great thing about my new passion is that I have a whole new attitude about life...Everyone expects runners to be energized, active, and full of life. This is not the case for sit-around-on-your-assers... now I can sit around and be in the most depressest, foulest, grumpiest mood imaginable and nobody bats and eye... it's fuckin' great!!!!
Another thing about my new passion is that it's really improved my relationship with my wife... my wife used to quickly grow tired of me constantly talking about running... she'd hate when I wake up early on the weekends to squeeze in a long run on when we could be snuggled under the blankets, sleeping in... Now things are much better... here's a little look into our new home life:
Wifey: "Honey, the lawn needs mowed, the dishes are dirty, and the trash needs taken out..."
Me: "Not now, I'm busy sitting around on my ass..."
Wifey: "Oh sorry. Never mind, I'll take care of it"
Yep, we're communicating like never before... plus, sitting around on our asses is something we can do together... not only that, but nobody expects people who sit around on their asses to complete things that they finish... in fact, it's a victory to even start something... just like this blog post!
