I’ve been training for a 10 Mile Race called The Broad Street Run, here in Philadelphia. I’ve run it twice over the last 8 years or so. It’s really a great race and kicks off the running season. The race is May 4th and I’ve been ramping up my mileage for a month and a half to be able to finish it.

The night before my surgery I ran 6 miles. I haven’t been able to run since….so about 11 days without any exercise. I can walk just fine, but get uncomfortable with any jumping action. Hell I’m sore by the end of the day from just gravity.

It just sucks because I had lost some weight and was doing really well, and then after the surgery I had to lay around and wound up drinking 2 cases of beer during that first week. I was trying to get drunk, not fat but wound up achieving both. You really dont make good food choices when you're crashed out on the couch for a few days, and when you have my capacity, it's a mistake to eat until you are full.

I’m going to try to run on the treadmill for a few minutes today to see how things are shaking, but I don’t know if my boys will be ready for the abuse of a 10 mile run.

I guess I should be grateful that I didn’t have a lot of the complications other guys had, but I’m just ready to get going and tired of just doing pushups everyday as my only exercise.

Take care of the boys. I am sure Miss Daisy would appreciate it.

The safety and comfort of my 'boys' remains my highest priority.

God bless you, man. I haven't even started with the whole shitty diapers thing yet. I've been laying around drinking two cases of beer about every weekend for the last 20 years. Maybe I'll just stick to that.....

"I was trying to get drunk, not fat but wound up achieving both." What a line. I might just borrow that one.

It's hard to be patient. Hang in there.

A 10-mile run sounds like a great idea to burn off those extra calories from the Nathan's hot dogs! Good for you.

Come out and deliver mail with me for a few days. You see how ultra thin and in shape I am (cough, cough).
