When my book I Run, Therefore I Am – NUTS! was published it was uncertain if it would sell a total of six copies (to sympathetic family members) or be slightly more successful. Would those who welcome the feeling of crusty sweat, who wear black toenails like badges of honor and find joy in the exhilaration of exhaustion, also find humor in all things running?
Thankfully they did. The book generated tremendous laughter and quite a following amongst the polyester laden running set while becoming a top-selling book. We runners knew that after those occasions where we hit the proverbial wall, feeling as though an obese elephant had jumped on our shoulders for a piggy back ride, it’s best to find some laughs after the hallucinatory fog dissipates.
I’ve been a runner for over 40 years and have hit more than my share of walls, but in the process have accumulated a wealth of humorous running related experiences to draw from. All of which ultimately contributed to the sequel of I Run, Therefore I Am – STILL Nuts!
So allow me to replace your side stitches with stitches from laughter and get you into your target heart rate zone via tickling your funny bone.
Long may you run and long may you laugh,
