Orioles/Indians (swept by)

Orioles, don’t feel so bad.  I think the cold and rainy April days are good reasons to consider April a warm up month.  If other teams sweep you in June then you should really worry.  Just think of all the Boston Marathoners today who didn’t establish PRs; then you will realize the amount of dissatisfaction you feel as a result of being swept in no way compares with the copious quantities of dissastisfaction felt by hundreds of people.  Actually, they should all be honored.  What a feat, eh!

I haven’t felt good for a few days. I think I pulled a side muscle or something.  Anyway, I was jealous of those who were outside running today.  Jealous, in an inspired way.  Maybe I should always prepare to run after work.  As I don’t have a car that would result in another bag of stuff I carry to work every day.  That’s quite a lifestyle change.   Maybe maybe . . .


Game 10: Orioles/Yankees

I had to stop listening to this after the 3rd inning or so, because I was feeling a residual effect from the previous losing seasons.  I’m sorry, Orioles.  It looks like I missed your runs, and the better pitching. 

After I switched to a Cubs/Astros game I didn’t think the O’s were doing that bad.

Today I was determined to run *strong.*   During my run I realized that to run strong was to enjoy myself.  I feel weak if I’m not enjoying myself, so the goal is to always enjoy myself. 

Running is voluntary.  As I run around beautiful DC it shouldn’t be that hard to enjoy myself.  The runners, softball players, kites, volleyball players, and kickball players were out in full force today.  It was a tremendously beautiful day for a run, and I enjoyed it very much.


Orioles 6 wins/3 losses

The latest series was exciting and numbing all at the same time.  Exciting because the O’s won the first game against the Rangers, and the O’s were the first team to win a game against the Rangers this year.  However, once games 2 and 3 rolled around, it seemed that the Rangers were just a better team.

For instance, there were many times during the 3rd game when 2 men were on base, with two outs, and the O’s wouldn’t score.  My twin and I agreed that Buck Showalter would probably discuss that issue with the O’s at the next opportune moment.  Oi!  Wouldn’t that make a manager mad?

I was outside running/walking for an hour.  At least half was walking.  I can’t wait until I’m so bored with walking, or so jazzed about my running, that I don’t walk during my *runs.*  There I will be cruising all over DC channeling my inner running-goddess.



Game #5: Orioles/Tigers

I’m sorry to hear that you lost, O’s, but you’re still in a great position to take the major league baseball world by storm. 

I’ve been sidelined by my lack of inspiration to run.  I decided to use the time I should be running, by doing something that reflects my thinking about running.
