Happy belated Halloween, everyone! Are you in a sugar coma yet? Hope all the kids took all the candy on Thursday night.
The beauty of having a blog that is over a year old is that I get to self-creep, and see what I have done on this very day last year.
This year, my yet another impromptu costume had me strutting the lecture hall as a gypsy dancer.
I think the operational definition of how corky you are has to be the number of Halloween costumes you can throw together from your everyday clothes. My number is at least five. What’s yours?
In the true spirit of Halloween truly scary things have been happening in the obstacle racing world. Run for Your Lives closed shop, only to be brought back to life zombie style by the Human Movement LLC, the name behind the Color Run and other fun-themed OCR-ish events. [Although the Run for Your Lives website is still dead. Maybe the revival was only partial?]
Oh, the suspense. Oh, the horror.
I am thankful for all the investigative/journalistic work that Matt B. Davis does, because I’m seriously losing track of who closed their doors when, and why. The three big dogs are sleeping, while the little dogs are fighting for the scraps of meat left over.
On an unrelated note… I tend to receive many questions about obstacle racing, fitness, running and health from readers. However, this week I have received a more challenging inquiry:
“I have a question about a Jesus’ second coming. I get many conflicting answers, but I know someone must have the answer that makes sense. The question is, if the year of Christ’s first coming was given, why wouldn’t the year of his second coming also have been given? Seriously. Looking for feedback.”
Unfortunately, all of my academic training has failed to provide an answer to the above, and I have no choice but to direct the reader to Luke 11:9-10.
“And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”
In other words, keep asketh. Of course, it is never clear when you will receiveth, so you may have to waiteth for a while. Or maybe, you are simply not knocketh hard enough. In which case, you may want to includeth some upper body training into your current regimen.
