Or maybe it WAS actually Pat Benatar? (Project 190, Day Seven)

My God it was hot out there, today.

But I've done seven days in a row, rattled them off like nobody's business, and I'm seven days healthier than I was a week ago.

Today's exercise:  Running, my outdoor/nature trail track, 27:00.
Latest Weight:  254


Today's Song That Wasn't The First Song I Was Going To Put On Here But Then I Heard This Song And It Was A Better One To Post:


Apparently, that song was used in an Apple ad.  It was playing on my iPod as I did my cool down walk, and I noticed the line "I feel too fat to go to the gym," which seemed fitting.

The original song I was going to post was Heartbreaker


by Pat Benatar, which was one of the first songs I played as I began running, and I was going to mention something about how I remember having an assembly in fifth grade when some woman came to our school and sang that song.  I still don't know why we had that assembly.  Maybe she was a graduate of the school?  Imagine if you started a career as a singer and the highlight of your tour was playing to a group of fifth graders at Hartland Elementary South, and decades later they couldn't even remember your name.

PS: The ostrich has nothing to do with this post.  It's just a picture I took yesterday when Mr Bunches and I took a trip to the zoo to try to go on their cool playground but the cool playground was closed, thanks for NOTHING, Henry Vilas Zoo.

PPS: In the Ostrich Enclosure, there was also a peacock, which Mr Bunches was at first convinced was a baby ostrich and was cute.  When I helped him understand it was a peacock, he said "Like in Kung Fu Panda 2?" (A movie he's no longer afraid of), and I said "Yes," and he said "Oh, it's very strong, right?"

I agreed that peacocks are very strong.

Pat Benetar...such an icon of the 80s!

Well, if it lives with an ostrich, it must be.

I hope in 20 years all the 6th graders I read to last year (and the ones I'll be reading to this year) still remember who I am.
