CARTOON ANSWER: RUNNING UP A HILLSIDE CAN BE GREAT EXERCISE
IF YOU ARE – – –
LS NCE IN OID = SO INCLINED
Good Morning, Everyone! 🏃🏻 IT’S UP TO YOU 🏃🏻
🎶 I RUN for hope, I RUN to feel…I RUN for the truth, For all that is real…I RUN for your Mother, your sister, your wife…I RUN for you and me, my friend…I RUN for life…🎶 “I Run For Life” – Melissa Etheridge – 2005
🏃🏻 I do a lot of running, but in no way can relate,
A hill to me is made for ants!…I keep a steady gait.
I pass a FENCE, a park or two, a pothole here and there,
Some look like one’s gone MINING…City life? Always beware!
But up a hill, then down again? Uh, no way, God FORBID…
I like to get the exercise, but c’mon who’s to kid?
I’ll do SALSA, skip sour cream, it’s all the give and take,
I’d rather ditch the calories, so hills I can forsake.
The running’s good, it keeps me fit, but there’s no never mind…
To entertain an uphill run? No, never SO INCLINED!🏃🏻
So, it might feel like a Monday morning…but it’s not. Always seems a little OFF TRACK like that the day after a Holiday, right? But it’s Thursday, and as our week WINDS DOWN, we find two words that are Sweet Repeats, and two that may be new. I looked for SALSA and MINING, but it proved to be an EXERCISE in futility…And I think they may also turn out to be the two words to give us an UPHILL battle today…We shall see. Ok, our cartoon. So, where do we find ourselves today? Out West perhaps? At a West STRIDE Story? Hmm. Jeff shows us two male RUNNERS. One we can see and “hear” has been RUNNING for a while now. He’s happy, he’s fit, he’s a regular Man of HEEL…And he even has a favorite hill. The other THIGH, his Buddy, seems pretty much at ease, despite not exactly looking like STRIDER Man. But he’s willing to take a “shot” at RUNNING UP that HILL. No STRIDE and Prejudice here…So with our question asking...UPHILL RUNNING is great EXERCISE, if you’re what?... SO INCLINED! Good one, David…Right on COURSE!
Ok, eye candy…Not much to see. Except for the RUTS in the GROUND, showing that neither the PATH nor the HILL is a ROAD LESS TRAVELED, there’s really nothing JUMPing off the page…Kind of just amounts to a HILL of beans really. So…I’m just INCLINED to let it go today…And There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…I’m late…I gotta RUN! 🏃🏻🙋🏻
