because he's already a better runner than me. we went on a 1:11:48 run at bent creek on saturday (no pics, forgot to bring camera) and he was a flaming ball of energy the entire time! i've been running for a year now and this was jim's 3rd run since high school. i kept up on the flats but he left me powerless up the climbs and nervously descending the muddy trail as he lept and flew (literally) like he was a 7 year old. as i struggled to breathe he told one long winded story after another, including the history of Campy, what exactly a retro direct bicycle is and how it works, and how he hasn't completely outgrown his baby fat from childhood. he rounded EVERY burm and hit EVERY jump, clicking his feet together in the air as if he were weightless. undoubtedly he will leave josh and i in the dust at Cooper River Bridge Run, but we're ok with that. we don't have to be the best at EVERYTHING, like jimothy morrison.
