A Case of Drag Ass

Everything about my run this morning indicates that I am suffering from a confirmed case of "Drag Ass." It's a real affliction. I swear. In fact, the Physician's Desk Reference has an entry for it:

A mental and physical inability to respond to necessity or demand. Those suffering from this condition may feel as though they are moving in slow motion, and despite being aware of their limited mobility and muted mental acuity, they are unable to improve upon either. Frequent sufferers of this condition include college students, those in their mid-20s who are often recovering from "last night at the bar," and those who are new parents.

See? It's real. And you can't prove otherwise.

Tomorrow it will be a case of "light a fire under my ass" and you will smoke your stats.

So you were out at the bar last night????? I call it Thursday.

Xenia said...

Now I know what's wrong with me! Thanks, Dr. Jess. :)

Jamoosh said...

It would be so cool to move in slow motion (unless of course you are running). Do you know how many people you would piss off?

Thanks for the diagnosis! Now I know what my problem has been the last few days.

I really had NO IDEA the PDR was THAT helpful!
When times are rough, remember...you're still in FL!
It's 40, still dark, and foggy here right now :)

Marlene said...

Sounds legit to me.

Carly said...

Drag Ass might be contagious because I feel like I have a case of it today too.

JojaJogger said...

So, THAT's what it's called, thanks, Jess!

kelsalynn said...

I've got a case of it too, skipping my workout today.

Let me know if you find a cure.

RazZDoodle said...

Anna said...

Anybody up early enough to run then blog at the 5 o'clock hour is not dragging ass in my book! :)

Jess said...

Bahaha! I agree with you. It most definitely affects me lol!

Heather said...

You don't need to tell me twice - it is real, for sure.

Steve Stenzel said...

Ha! I have that most Fridays....

As a new parent still in school, I can attest that the day after the bar when you are approaching your mid-thirties is much more challenging than it was in your mid-twenties.

Ted said...

Hmmm.. running in slow motion? That got to feel like running in a pool of peanut butter. That's hard to move huh?

Agate Lake Girl said...

Maybe I should have added "drag ass" to my list of possible ailments - this will only make sense if you already read my blog post for today. :)

Rio Runs said...

I can vouch for that. I believe I had that earlier a couple of months ago.
Hoping for a quick cure!

Shannon said...

LMAO.....

N.D. said...

hahaha :) we all have those days.

Wes said...

That's a disease. Isn't it? Drag-ass-itis? :-)

sRod said...
