I found this amusing, and almost busted a gut at this line:

"Nothing had been touched since I packed it away. Fifty-seven copies of Runner’s World with picture after picture of emaciated Kenyan’s who ran three to four hundred miles a week in preparation for some marathon. These guys were icons of physical fitness to me once. Now all I saw was a bunch of folks sorely in need of a cheeseburger and curly fries."

Very well written. Thank you for sharing.

Except for that "to" in the first sentence--every word perfect. Your wry, self-deprecating humor is absolutely hilarious. Such a unique voice, and so much appreciated here--wish we had more humor writers.

I agree with everyone, tremendously well-written and just hilarious. What I really loved, though, was in spite of obvious setbacks, you still kept going at the end. So funny but still with a great message. Loved it!
