Sometimes I ...... Run!

I thought it was about time I wrote about my running, especially to support my application to join RBF. There I am, number 799 no no no, now I'm 801!

I've read numerous articles and studied, practiced and worked on the various aspects of "the mind behind the run". This includes the use of positive words or verbal chants to trick the mind into feeling good within the run. I've never been good at this and haven't got much passed tourets. The whole concept is very similar to little girls jumping rope.

Whilst researching popular rhymes, I rediscovered the famous Cinderlla title and found out that the Australian version is slightly modified.

Cinderella
Dressed in yella
Went downstairs to kiss her fella.
She made a mistake
And kissed a snake.
How many doctors will it take?
1! 2! 3! 4! (etc.)

An Australian version of this rhyme was very popular in the 1960's

Cinderella
Dressed in yella
Went to meet her handsome fella.
On the way her undies busted
How many people were disgusted?
1! 2! 3! 4! (etc.)

So what did I came up with .......

"McMillan, Pfitzinger,
Time put pull out my finger,
McMillian, Pfitzinger,
My runs are getting bigger,

Run with Pat, Run with Pat, No time to chat, Run with Pat,
Run with Pat, Run with Pat, No time to chat, enough with that.

Now I'n on a mission,
Need to work on nutrition,
Going to Hal with Higdon,
My cheezy poofs, I'm missin'.

Run with Pat, Run with Pat, No time to chat, Run with Pat,
Run with Pat, Run with Pat, No time to chat, enough with that."

You're lucky they do not have any formal rules of etiquette required to become a member of the RBF.
