Funny Foto Friday: Runners and Toliet Paper

Sometimes even the most fun things can be horrible.  For example, take eating candy.  9 times out of 10, eating candy is ah-ma-zing.  It is sugary, fruity or chocolaty, essentially it is a party in your mouth and everyone is invited.  But every so often, you’re munching away on some gobstoppers, someone tells a funny joke and in the midst of swallowing and laughing one of them gets lodged in your throat.  Before you know it you’re trying to do the heimlich maneuver on yourself on the edge of a chair.

Today my run was like choking on a gobstopper.  Or maybe chipping a tooth while trying to eat a tootsie pop after only licking it one time.  Not that I have ever done either of those....

I had 10 easy miles on the schedule.  I got 2 miles in and knew that I had to turn back.  I had shin pain, hamstring tightness, I was a hot mess.  The 2 miles back were a run walk fiasco that I haven’t had in quite some time. But, I know that the next time the gobstopper will be delicious and won’t threaten my life....and tomorrow is another day.


Runners have an interesting relationship with poo.  Or, I guess at least some runners do.  OK, FINE. I DO.  Anyway, to celebrate two of my favorite things running,  here are a few fun Funny Foto Fridays!

I'm totally a "road" guy based on this.  Although, I have been known to bandit

Runners world has lots of these fun daily pictures.  I'd probably subscribe if the magazine was just these for 70 pages.

Seriously, my body feels OLD

One thing I love about runners and runner blogs is the willingness to talk about poo...a side benefit of which is being open to horrifying my nieces and nephews with stories about pooping in the woods and wiping with snow (spoiler alert: less pleasant than I'd imagined).

I totally got a gumball lodged in my throat on a schoolbus one time. So not a good time! Sorry your run was so awful :( I know the next time you will be able to savour all the flavours of your, run!

What a great analogy…good way to look at things for the next time I am having a “Heimlich” type of run
