The Fun Dome (#14): Fight The Blerch

I’m having a hard time this spring. This is normal. I go from the fluid, impact-free sport of cross-country skiing (the best sport in the world) to running. It hurts. As a teenager, I could tell I put on a few pounds of muscle and the footsteps seemed to be a little heavier. This winter, I put on several pounds of something else. Some sort of gelatinous mass attached to my mid-section. My old leaf springs and shocks don’t work as well, either. This spring could be one of the worst transitions I’ve had. Ow. Quit it. Ow. Quit it.

My good friend, always there to help motivate.

I know when I’m finally in shape. I’ll be on a run and, when a hill starts to flatten out, I’ll start to accelerate without trying. In my head, I call it “the road tilting down.” It’s a good feeling. I haven’t had it this year.

It’ll happen as long as I don’t give up. Don’t give in to The Blerch. The Blerch is real. I’m afraid of The Blerch. I will fight The Blerch.

Down with The Blerch.

No wall. Just Blerch.
