Not a Runner

Today I’m officially beginning training for the 5k I am scheduled to run in June. I started and stopped several times over the last two months, the excuse being mainly the weather, which is a good excuse this year. But if I’m going to be in any kind of shape to run this thing, then snow or not, I need to start running. That got me thinking:

What do you call a runner who doesn’t run? Not a runner.  

I’ve noticed the same correlation with my writing. It’s real easy to come up with loads of excuses why I’m too busy, or why I can’t write right now, and many of those excuses are valid. But if I don’t do something, even just a little, nothing is going to get accomplished.

What do you call a writer who doesn’t write? Not a writer.

Sobering thought.
Is there anyone besides me who needs to get in better shape?

And speaking of running:

Dead and Moaning in Las Vegas: Black Elvis, a drunken janitor, and a stripper embark on an epic quest to not become zombie food when the undead apocalypse rocks Las Vegas.

If you haven't checked these guys out yet, you need to. They are hilarious.
