Holy cow!

In 1977, when I was 9 years old, I knew this song was about having sex in a car. What I did not understand was how funny it is.

The training schedule for the Cleveland Half is so ... Cleveland. You should run 3 miles today ... or two, it's okay if you run two. And don't run on Saturdays, sleep in, eat a big stack of pancakes. But do run your peak-to-date distance on Sunday, so that on Monday, when you also shouldn't run, you can hobble around feeling weak and miserable and hate yourself.

I ran today.
