Ed, the super-annuated ultra-marathon runner

The number of miles he would run
Last year was a mere fifty-one.
But now, fifty-two?
That much harder to do —
Old age does not make it more fun.

In honor of my brother-in-law Ed’s birthday. He runs the same number of miles (or is it kilometers? he’ll never tell!) as his age on the day before and then the day of his birthday. The older he gets, the more miles he has to run. Somehow, that seems backwards to me. Life oughta get easier, not harder. Ed has a great website: www.dudewheresyourwalker.com
