Half Mile Run

Marcus:  Please bow your heads and talk softly.  We don't want Jan to hear us plotting against her.

Merci:  I'm not sure about this.  One of us could get hurt.

Buddy:  We all agreed it's for her own good.  Jan needs the exercise. 

Merci:  Yes, but she's old.  We're old too.  I don't think I can keep up with the rest of you.

Marcus:  Sure you can, Merci.  Just keep those short legs pumping.  And, Buddy, breathe from your diaphragm. 

Buddy:  How can I breathe from something I can't spell and I don't know what or where it is?

Marcus:  It's a muscular partition separating the abdominal and thoracic cavities.  It functions in respiration.

Merci:  I don't know anything about that, but I sure hope my lungs still function so I can breathe.

Buddy:  I used to have stamina, but I lost it on one of our extended walks.  I'll do my best.

Marcus:  If we all go together, Jan will follow one way or another.  On her feet or on her face.

Buddy:  I hope it's on her feet.  I forget how to dial 9-1-1. 

Marcus:  On the count of three.  One ... two ... RUUUUNNNN!  Hey, why are you both lying down?

Merci:  We just finished a half mile run.  I'm exhausted. 

Marcus:  Half mile?  You ran three steps.  Jan isn't even winded. 

Buddy:  That's okay.  We are. 

Merci:  This was a good workout, Marcus.  We'll have to try it again some day.   


  1. Crikey Marcus ...... since when do you know so much about science stuff?? 'a muscular partition separating the abdominal and thoracic cavities. It functions in respiration.' Even my mate Bertie wouldn't know about that. You've gone up in my estimations, mate!!

  3. You guys are too funny! A run/walk might be good for all of you to start, to ease into it, you know?

  4. Oh, I ADORE you crazy Funny Farmers!!! And Marcus, you must have been doing some adult education classes, no? Thoracic cavities, indeed! I am impressed. I hope Jan finally kept up....

  6. You guys are funny. Are you sure it is Jan in need of exercise and not you

    You are all too funny. Are you sure it is Jan that needs the exercise?

  13. I would never be able to get my old pup to run half a mile with me. But that's okay since I wouldn't run a half mile anyway!

  14. Even I'm tired after that run!!!

  15. Marcus, maybe you could pull Merci and Buddy and Jan in a wagon! :)

  16. The petcretary here walked 5.25 miles this evening according to her fit-bit...but of course even dog-guy stayed at 14 that is a bit much fur him...and we kitties just play chase in the we feel all exhausted listening to your views on the running stuff:)

    But staying in shape is a good idea, right??


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
