The 30 Minute Mile

 I have a Charlie-Mule.  What is a Charlie-Mule?   It's a Charlie-Horse on someone who moves like a Mule.

Truth be told, I don't walk slowly, but I am a slow runner.   When I try to run it's as if my mind is saying go, but my legs are saying Oh No!    If I ran any slower, I'd be going backwards.

Members of my Softball Team used to say that it looked like I was running under water.   They were always very sympathetic.   I remember once sliding into third with a pulled groin.  One of my friends commented that with my sex life I should be used to that. My High School Basketball Coach would hesitate to punish me with laps, because he knew by the time that I finished practice would be long over.

It's always been this way.  In Little League at Charles Park in Howard Beach at age 12,  I was batting against the neighborhood bully.     I got hold of his fastball and hit it further than anyone could imagine.   Most people could have rounded the bases twice.  I pulled up with a triple.

Now if I run, a rare event, I pull a muscle.   This one was trying to get across Queens Boulevard before the light changed.
 

I can remember running with my friend;s two year old, who after a  few steps said, "No, I said run."  I told him, "Kid, this is as good as it gets."
