One-liner Wednesday – less is more

I have a charity 5K race coming up in mid-September. One of my health goals for this year is to run it faster than all previous personal records. As I am also on the lookout for a new (to me) car, I took some inspiration from the car industry…

The same size engine performs differently depending on the weight of the car. So if I want to break my own personal record, I need to increase my cardio fitness (increase the engine capacity) and reduce body weight (lighten the chassis). So far, this theory seems to be working. My chassis has lost ten pounds so far (4 more to go) and the horrible, but necessary, sprint runs have increased my engine capacity. Maintaining this new state of efficiency might take something the car industry can’t provide – the will power to resist chocolate and second gin and tonics!

Today’s very strange thought process, lasting more than one line, was prompted by Linda G Hill and her mid-week prompt. Click here for the full rules.

  1. “The same size engine performs differently depending on the weight of the car.”

    Oh, that’s a great line. So true. Wishing you the best in your run, hoping life without choc or a second G&T won’t cause your engine to overheat!

  2. I don’t know about you, but my engine doesn’t run as well in the heat, and in extreme cold? Won’t even start. 😉
    Congrats on losing ten pounds! You (and this post) are an inspiration. 🙂
