Joys of Trail Running,Tim Tebow,NFL ,and Health

A few words about last Saturday's run.  Saturday, Secretariat, and I ran on the trail to the deli in Downtown Cool where we met Carrie.  She had an early morning meeting, and I gave her our estimated time of arrival.  I told her she would be our aid station and to bring goodies. She did as requested. Once there, I told her that many years ago, Secretariat beat this world class ex ride and tie female runner at a running race where she gave him a cute nickname.  I told her that he would be angry with me if I told her the cute name.  Immediately, Carrie wanted to know the name in the worst way and begin guessing.  And wouldn’t you just know it, she guessed the name.  You will have to ask her about that cutesy name as I cannot tell you.
Then we left to run back to my home going by Chris Turney’s house.  Secretariat, as usual, got into the lead and when we reached Chris’s home, we found Chris, Micki and Secretariat waiting for us. Secretariat was drinking a beer and claimed he had been there for a long time.  Chris said he was still not feeling well and declined to join us for this run.   By the way, Chris knows Secretariats AKA as it is a trail secret.  What you hear on the trail stays on the trail –the runner’s code...
After Secretariat, finished his beer, we took off for my home, which is about 50 to 55 minutes away.  After a while, Secretariat got into the lead again.  Carrie and I had much to talk about, and as a result, we leisurely reached my home.  Secretariat said he had been waiting for us for a long time, but Linda told us differently.  At my home, Secretariat had another beer, a chocolate brownie, a banana, chocolate ice cream, and chocolate syrup. He said he enjoyed that run especially because of the aid stations.  All told, Secretariat and I covered about 15 miles give or take.
Yesterday I talked about Tim Tebow.  I just have to comment on an article in the January 12, 2012 edition of the Wall Street Journal titled “Does God Care Who Wins Football Games?”  This article was written by Fran Tarkington the NFL quarterback who primarily played for the Minnesota Vikings.  Tarkington grew up the son of a Pentecostal Holiness minister and attended church on Wednesday night, Friday night, Sunday morning, and Saturday night every week of his childhood.  He was at the first-ever national camp for the Fellowship of Christian athletes attended by Otto Graham, and Don Meredith other NFL quarterbacks.
Tarkington commented that in the Super Bowl with the Raiders, he was sure that God would be on his side for the game, because it was against the Raiders, and they were the villains of the league.  He said it was hard for him to believe they would lose because he thought the Vikings had more Christians on their team than the rebel Raiders.  He said.  “We lost.”  What was cute was when he said that players would pray before the game “let there not be any injuries, let everybody play good game.”  He added that there was no prayer to win the game, because he feared that God would punish us for asking.  He  said that after the moment of devotion, the team would all shout in unison, “now let us go kill those SOB’s!” Enjoy the rest of your day.
