When Life Hands You Lemons, Throw Those Lemons at Life's Crotch

Runners love to congratulate themselves on how positive they are. We have all of these inspirational sayings about getting up when you fall, turning loss into opportunity, taking one step at a time… you know what I’m talking about. I bet you have your own favorite saying that keeps you going when things are tough. Take, for instance, the old saying about life handing you lemons and making lemonade. Well, if lemonade is the best thing that you can think of to do with lemons, then I feel bad for you and your lack of creativity. How about a lemon drop martini? Or lemon meringue pie? Or Lemonheads? Or, I have a better idea; how about this: THROW THOSE LEMONS BACK AT LIFE. AIM FOR THE CROTCH!

Mama Says No Major Life Decisions in March

Et tu, Minnesota? Beware the Ides of March, especially if you are a Roman emperor and/or live in a Northern climate and think you are going to be able to start running outside anytime soon  amidst the soul-renewing sounds of robins chirping and the spirit-lifting sights of baby bunnies and lambs frolicking around. I mean, it’s rare to see lambs in the city, anyway, but you can really forget about seeing any in March around these parts!
