Five-Hundred Word Challenge 1205: Outrun the Afternoon

The afternoon has dragged itself into view and now I’m trying to outrun it. I don’t want to be caught by the afternoon. There is so much that I need to get out of the way first and if I don;’t get all that out of the way then the afternoon will get me and where does that leave me? Other than right where I am, of course.

I need to run but I have not done a bit of a run in a long time so therefore I need to prepare. I need to engage in the art of the montage and hope for the best and if I can hope for the best long enough, then I can get to where IP need to be. However, the montage needs to be snappy. It needs to move at a good pace and not feel rushed but it needs to be faster than the speed of a regular montage. Therefore the montage in which I’d be conducting would be a minimal montage.

Well, maybe it wouldn’t be that minimal at all, but rather just reduced. There still would be enough to work out the idea of progress and all the other things that you need to know in order for a montage to work, but it would be over faster than the usual montage and that way I still have a bit of time to run before the afternoon reaches me.

Of course the hope is that the afternoon doesn’t reach me and I can outrun it, get to the other side and then sit here for a bit longer and twiddle my thumbs before the afternoon reaches me once more and leaves me going “I need to outrun the afternoon so as to have more time to get the things done that I need to get done” and then go running again. This might not seem like the best way of going about things, but I can assure you that it most certainly is as there’s a big benefit here and that benefit is that I get to do a bit of running and sometimes running is good for you.

I’d need to make sure that I do it with shoes that minimise impact as much as possible and I need to make sure that I stay hydrated and all that, but assuming that all things go well, then it would be full run ahead off into an unknown horizon where all is majestic and I’d just need to keep on running and avoid the dangers of running a long distance that lie ahead as they would inevitably act to prevent me from outrunning the afternoon. The afternoon would then catch up to me and I’d be a bit stuffed as it would drag me back to where I currently am and force me to sit here and get on with the getting on and all that other stuff.

So with all that said, it’s time for a running montage.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 05:35:55

Silly writing, but fun writing.

Written at home.
