Exercise maven spins glitter and sparks

I previously wrote of a fellow running club member who dressed like and mimicked his idol, Steve Prefontaine, which caused him to unknowingly channel Pre’s talent and race to PR’s that matched his.

Cassandra Mooter stretching before a run

Now, another major talent has risen. Cassandra Mooter stretches and does enigmatic poses before our group’s runs. At first she was a solitary exerciser, but soon she attracted followers and now leads a group of several dozen before each run. I like to watch because faint streaks of light shoot from her, and a halo-like shine outlines her body. Often, a colorful, ethereal rainbow forms over her head which occasionally causes a quick shower that drenches her. I think it’s funny when that happens.

Yet I resisted joining her group. I just don’t like to stretch, even though she once touched me and remarked that my muscles are about as stretchy as steel cables. She is so amazingly spot on because in high school I was so tight that my cross-country teammates called me cableman.

Eventually, Cassandra tailored a program I can do at home that has really opened up my chakras, releasing gobs of dynamic energy that make me eager to run, causes the endorphins to really kick in, and eases my tightness. I encourage you to try the wonderful poses below. Let me know how they work for you.

Cassandra says by symbolizing the meshing of the physical with the intelluctual, I can create an optimal balance. My running has since become so holistic.

By running in an inverted position, I can draw sky energy to compliment my ground energy. Don't have to do a lot of it. Sky is to ground like cream is to coffee.

The power of ancient grains that fed past great civilizations still exists. By invoking the power of the triangle with a blend of head chakra vibes and grain energy, I can funnel this power into my personal energy grid. For grain energy, I like to use Tru Roots pasta made from quinoa, amaranth, and brown rice.

I can't remember the explanation for this one.

    • I like hearing stories of people working hard to increase their flexibility. Good job, Bob. Keep it up and I’m sure one day you’ll be able to touch below the knees!

  1. A well appointed and light-endowed living room Jim. Love the hardwood! But you must fix the dented heat vent. Otherwise, a strained IT band is undoubtedly in your future

    • You have good eyes, Dave. Thanks for the compliments. However I called Cassandra as I was doubtful about any karmic connection between my heat vent and IT band. But it appears you have intuitive abilities. She says on the next full moon where Venus and Mercury are in the evening sky, I’ll suffer from IT band pain if my heat vent is still unrepaired
