Egyptian road runners.

Post by Dusak » Fri Jun 12, 2015 12:50 pm

Since February I've been traveling through Luxor at 5.30am on my International Rescue missions for friends. For the last five weeks or so I started to see something that I've never seen here before, the Egyptian power walkers and joggers. All shapes and sizes, young, middle aged and one old man that looks about my age. Men and women are taking part in these exercise, either together or in groups of same sex. Anyone else noted this sudden surge in keep fit?

Yip, on the streets of Liverpool I see them too, not groups, but individuals/ Usually bearded young men and older folk. :tk

Beep! Beep! I'm a Roadrunner Baby!! :lol:

Good for them for keeping in trim, used to see them early morning in Hyde Park.

Myself and wife walk 5KM every morning at around 6.00am just for a bit of exercise and then get home and have a hearty breakfast.

I may be getting the wrong impression here with these responses. I am quite knowledgeable to the fact that there are joggers in all countries, but my point being here, I find it unusual to suddenly see them in Luxor. It may be that I need to get a life. :lol:

to be honest I have not seen any joggers around Luxor, but I am never there at that time in a morning. Karnak has a few more open spaces for them where they can jog without danger.

OK Dusak, maybe I should have also said that these joggers have started appearing in the last 6 months or so... Sorry for the confusion, :up

Sorry MT I can't resist it :lol:

To each his sufferings: all are men,
Condemn'd alike to groan—
The tender for another's pain,
Th' unfeeling for his own.
Yet, ah! why should they know their fate,
Since sorrow never comes too late,
And happiness too swiftly flies?
Thought would destroy their Paradise.
No more;—where ignorance is bliss,
'Tis folly to be wise.

This road runner was a really cool dude, one of my favorite childhood cartoon characters. Still is if I'm honest. It was truly amazing what you could buy from the Acme corporation, ordered and delivered anywhere far quicker than the then non existent internet. :up

I always wanted Wylee Coyote to catch that little annoying ******* to be Honest Dusak.. :br

My Mate Tim.... Who it seems did not learn from Wylee's mistakes...

Finally, the un-aired final episode, when Wylee finally gets the Road Runner... :cg

:-) Yes, Major Thom, with all those open spaces - what could possibly happen there?

And that is life, you tend to only appreciate what you had when you have lost it. RIP Roadrunner, beep beep.

I'm beginning to think that they, the joggers, must of been training for some sort of event as there has been no signs of any of them for two days now.

Maybe they got bored "D" many start off with good intentions and then fade back into the couch.
