Back to Basics

It feels weird to be writing a post about running but the funny thing is when I started this blog, that's all it was supposed to be about. This blog was originally called "Running The Streets". I wrote about the progress I was making trying to bring my weight down after a bad Dr. visit. Anyway, I did pretty good. I lost weight and actually began to like running.
We moved in '09. The free time I had for running was now spent on the freeway. I've tried to take advantage of the time I do have and now I've got some new motivation.
I challenged a friend to a 5k run in November(ish). What I've got to concentrate on is bringing down my time. I'll be checking in every week (maybe more often than that) with a post to let you know how it's going.
I included a picture of my time from this morning's run. Good starting point, I'd say. Plenty of room for improvement.

Chicas Patas Boogie

My Grandpa was diagnosed with cancer in February 2006. He celebrated his 85th birthday that June. Ever since I can remember, the biggest highlight of any of our family parties hands down was watching our grandparents dance.Although he was tired throughout his birthday party, he gave his audience what they wanted, one last show. I'd like to share their last dance with all of you. Thank you for watching.

Friends. How many of us have them?

I started off "playing" on twitter just like some other people, "for the LOLs" but what did I do? I fucked around and made some friends in the process. I will say for the record that I've never met some of these people in real life. When I say "some", I'm talking about 98% but when you think about it, does that really matter? Do you really need to meet in person to consider someone a friend? I really don't think so but just to be fair, let's check out the dictionary's definition of the word "friend" to see if it differs from mine. According to "Websters" the definition of the word friend is,"One person attached to another by respect or affection". Damn!! That's pretty good. I don't know if I can beat that but this is my definition here. Check it out.

Friends are people who...

1. keep you laughing all day especially when you might not be in any mood to reciprocate.

2. disregard the twitter handle and always call you by your first name.

3. are reading this blog post right now. Thank you, by the way.

4. go out of their way to wish you a Happy Birthday.

5. find a way to check up on you when you give up Twitter for Lent.

6. inspire you with every single one of their tweets.

7. have never met you in "real life" but are willing to spend their hard earned cash just to make you smile.

8. I wish nothing but the best for and who feel the same about me.

9. use their ability to reach people to help you spread the word about things and people who are very important to you.

10. accept you for who you are and what you believe because you're willing to do the same.

That's my definition of a friend and I hope to meet as many of you as I can. Thank you.
