23 Skidoo


Coach Galloway called for a 37 K long run today, so out I went into the rain and drizzle - all four hours and twenty minutes of it - and ran 23 miles, the closest that my small imperial measure brain could figure out was approximately 37 K.

The run was nice, but I do so hate wet feet for hours on end...

And according to the Polar S625X, I burned 3,540 calories in the process. Not too shabby a number for Super Bowl Sunday!

Weighed in at 195 this morning, 17% body fat. Guess now I'm closer to 194.

Damn, forgot about brekfast!

23 Skidoo.

I wonder where on earth that expression came from? Any answers, folks? Posted by Picasa

Jesslyn has recently posted your blog at the site, therefore you should be getting more hits.

Definition: 23 Skidoo is an American slang popularized in the early Twentieth Century (first appearing before World War I and becoming popular in the Roaring Twenties). It generally refers to leaving quickly. One nuance of the phrase suggests being rushed out by someone else. Another is taking advantage of a propitious opportunity to leave, that is, "getting out while the getting is good."
Happy trails, Bruce
