nuts-cover.jpgI recall being on vacation a few years ago and giving myself the luxury of having a massage. As my seemingly sadistic masseuse was pounding away on the back of my legs, he casually asked, "You're a marathon runner, aren't you?"

I immediately replied in the affirmative as pride filled my limbs. Like a proud peacock strutting their beautiful feathers I flexed (what I felt to be) all my sinewy muscles and concluded he'd noticed my well-conditioned runner's physique. I waited eagerly for the next question that I assumed would be how many miles I ran that morning.
