Pain like a toothache, but lower and louder...

I ran this morning, and shouldn't have, and Jake scolded me and I deserved it, and now I'm paying for it. I wasn't wearing good shoes, either, just my slippers.

You know how you have to tell little kids over and over again - don't run! Walk! Don't run! In the hallways of schools, crossing parking lots, wherever you go with them, until you have to threaten them, 'Do I have to hold your hand?'

I never outgrew that. I can get there faster! I can have more fun getting there! If I run just right, maybe I can fly!

But I can't, of course.
