But why me?

Bob:  Kathryn, I am one month and twenty-nine days younger than you and I shuffle along the ground a half-step at a time.  I looked up a bit ago and saw you running across the lawn.  How can you do that?

Kathryn:  I worked for K-Mart for twenty-eight years and it was constantly "Kathryn, run there;" Kathryn run thither."  I got in such a habit of running I just can't stop.

True story.

Well...that makes sense. That's why I don't have to do it all the time to be able to continue to do so.

Lin, probably; for I never could run more than forty steps without getting a stitch in my side. But to an old guy for whom moving is agonizing watching someone older than he running, well, it is disconcerting!
