Total Distance

I didn't wear my Garmin today.  I couldn't find it.  I was going to use the timer on my phone, but I was worried that it would start raining again.  It didn't.  And man it was nice!  It feels good to be running (more) regularly again.  Just as I'm sure it feels good to be regular.  The run was pretty uneventful until right towards the end when the crazy guy saw me again.  This time he just waved at me.  He's crazy.  Well, crazy about waving at me.  Anyway, I waved back and then did the two-handed point.

Crap, that particular sign means you only have 2 days to deliver the drug money. You are really in deep with the Insane Asylum gang now. I hope you can come up with it.

P.S. I don't have any money.

Oh, yes. French Fries and Oreos, you know me all too well, Deeds.

From Burt on Thu, Dec 01, 2011 at 16:45:12 from

Joe - I'm really learning things the hard way. Maybe I can steal the funds from the Walk for Down Syndrome fundraiser. It seems to be the thing a gang member like me would do.

RAD - No, you're awesome. You! (Could you feel me pointing at you?)

Chad - Ha! I actually gave that movie to my friend and said, "I didn't really like this movie. But maybe you will."

From Steam8 on Thu, Dec 01, 2011 at 17:25:32 from

You are looking good Burt....it is no wonder they are waving at you! :)

From catherine on Thu, Dec 01, 2011 at 22:22:23 from

It does feel good to be regular.

From Burt on Thu, Dec 01, 2011 at 22:37:53 from

Thanks Steam. I do enjoy being handsome.

Catherine - what's your secret to staying regular?

From catherine on Thu, Dec 01, 2011 at 22:57:45 from

Chia. Like the Tarahumara.

From ben on Fri, Dec 02, 2011 at 00:16:07 from

Where did you find that picture of little braddah??

From Burt on Fri, Dec 02, 2011 at 00:47:35 from

Haha! Little braddah makes that suit look good.

From Tara on Fri, Dec 02, 2011 at 01:09:43 from

My hubby and I are sitting in bed reading your posts and laughing our heads off. We do this often:)

From The Quiet Pirate on Fri, Dec 02, 2011 at 10:34:21 from

Nice hair gel. Evidently you're not just a member of insane people who run, you're the president..I mean el presidente!

From RAD on Fri, Dec 02, 2011 at 12:27:15 from

No Burt, I'm not awesome - I'm RAD.

From Burt on Fri, Dec 02, 2011 at 14:25:58 from

Tara - I'm glad my blog puts you and your hubby in the mood. I mean in a good mood.

QP - I'm a Dapper Dan man.

RAD - and you're not crazy. You're just bored.

From ACorn on Fri, Dec 02, 2011 at 14:51:45 from

Where do you get these ridiculously goofy pictures? This one has a definite creep factor going for it.

Nice run Burt!

From Burt on Fri, Dec 02, 2011 at 14:56:46 from

Adam - I went to the mall to have some glamor shots taken.

From Chad Robinson on Fri, Dec 02, 2011 at 14:58:24 from

I'm sure Deb could have done them for less.

From Burt on Fri, Dec 02, 2011 at 15:06:24 from

I hear her mom's in college.

From Claudio on Fri, Dec 02, 2011 at 15:48:01 from

Burt - good to see you back at running! I think you and your new friend are going to hug tomorrow!

From Burt on Fri, Dec 02, 2011 at 16:29:47 from

That's entirely possible Claudio. We might even cut ourselves and rub our wounds together so that we become blood brothers.

From Rye on Sat, Dec 03, 2011 at 01:33:33 from

You dont have to cut yourselves to be blood brothers. Andy and Opie did that with a stick that was burnt from a fire. They rubbed the burnt ash on their hands. Course, you are kind of a extreme guy.

From Burt on Sat, Dec 03, 2011 at 01:42:07 from

Rye - I don't remember Andy and Opie being characters on 24.

From Rye on Sat, Dec 03, 2011 at 11:45:10 from

You are right Burt, but I thought that you would want to know that I have a softer and more refined side to me. There is Jack and Barney, both good at what they do.

From april27 on Sat, Dec 03, 2011 at 13:32:27 from

Ha! Glamour shots!

From Rhett on Tue, Dec 06, 2011 at 14:04:22 from

Burt, maybe he blogs about you and thinks you are "The Crazy Guy."
