"Since my Vasectomy I haven't been feeling myself lately"




Was that the wrong thing to say?

What I meant was that I felt a little deflated ......... well ..........

There is always post marathon blues (phew, at last I think I am getting his post back to a decent level). There has been research that supports "running makes us happy" and therefore it would also make sense that after a marathon and not running would have the opposing effect.

I plan on swimming in the morning.

Thanks to all for the Birthday wishes as well as the Sympathy thoughts for the loss of a Katy's cat Sierra. Over the next few days we will be getting back on track. It's been a tough time lately.

I guess I'm a little late - but happy birthday and sorry about the cat. Don't worry about the 'after-marathon' blues - it'll get better. Acknowledging them and accepting them are the first steps to getting over them.

Hope you had a happy birthday, all things considered!

Sorry to hear about Katy's cat.

Good luck with the swimming - do a couple of laps for me because I'm still finding excuses as to why I don't need to!

Happy belated birthday, and I hope you get through post-marathon let-down soon!

Sorry to hear about Katy's kitty.

Keep your chin up. Just because a little part of our manhood has been taken away from us it does not mean that we are any less manly. At least that's what I tell myself in the mirror every morning.

I hope that the vasectomy was not a birthday present! If so I will not say the date of my birthday (very soon indeed).

But does it make you run faster?

The only reason I ran marathons was to get in touch with my blue side.
