I felt nothing…but then….

 Nothing can be created out of nothing.

Today, i ran for 52 minutes.  Why 52 minutes you might ask?  Well, first of all i was running in a different area than where i usually run.  The number 52 just sort of popped into my head and so, running 52 minutes was inevetable.

Now, i started thinking….52!  What is the significance of the number 52?  Well, first there are 52 week in a year.  There are 52 cards in a deck.  There is the game 52 pick up.  How about the comic book 52?  It’s published by DC Comics and it consists of 52 issue published weekly for one year chronicling events that took place during the missing year after the end of Infinite Crisis!

Plus, there are tons and tons of blogs with 52 in the title.  Then, as if you didn’t know there is the rock group the B-52’s.  Also, how about the  B-52 Stratofortress a long-range, subsonic, jet-powered, strategic bomber flown by the United States Air Force (USAF) since 1955.    It’s as if the number 52 was meant to be today!  I don’t really know, but all i know is this:  I couldn’t stop running until my iron man running watch hit the number 52.

The best is this:  The B-52 drink (yes i’d like one please)

  • 1 part Irish Cream (Bailey’s)
  • 1 part Grand Marnier
  • 1 part Kahlua
Mixing Instructions
Layer Kahlua, Bailey’s and then Grand Marnier in a shot glass. (i wonder if i can drink this while running?)

Perhaps i will run 52 minutes all this week and see how far i get.  Maybe, tomorrow i will carry a deck of cards with me, listen to the B-52’s and at the end of my 52 minute run, i will scatter the 52 cards and play 52 card pick up all while drinking a B-52!!  OHHHH FUN!!

I crack myself up sometimes!!!   :O)

    You could make a trail of cards, throw one down at every minute until you run out? Now you have made me want one of those drinks!
