Tuesday Tune, vol 49 - Broken Hip Edition

Today's Tuesday Tunes are brought to you by broken pelvises.  Or is it broken pelvii?  Who knows.  Either way, I know of several people who have fractured their pelvii while riding bicycles.  There's Rick (not his real name), two of Hillene's friends, and my good friend 'n running buddy, Trailtrekker.  This last weekend, Trailtrekker was racing the Spudman triathlon.  Just before the bike-to-run exchange, she swerved to avoid a spectator and went down.  Hard.  Hard enough to crack her precious pelvis in two different places.

Although Trailtrekker has many talents, thousands even, holding still is not one of them.  Recovering in bed will be a challenge.  (Come to think of it, all of my running buddies have trouble holding still. I wonder if there's a correlation between people who can't sit still -- spastic movers -- and runners...)  Since Trailtrekker will be in bed for many weeks, I figured she could use some songs to listen to -- songs that remind her why she's stuck in bed.  I'm so very nice that way, yes?

This is sounding like a broken bone epidemic is happening all around us. Who's next?

And yes, these runner types don't idle well.

Maybe this is why I am so slow. I have no problem being lazy. Lazy. Lazy.
