Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-Tuesday, April Lynne Van Luven Suffering of the short-distance puffer Speak not unto me of the worse the suffering of loneliness of the long- the short-distance puffer, distance runner. And when you're measuring the two states, For I know something far suffering ranks higher on NEXT EDITION OF "THE CHINOOK" Will appear in The Lethbridge Herald Tuesday, April 30th Advertisers are reminded that the dead- line for advertisements is Wednesday, April 24 at p.m. The Lethbridge Herald the agony scale than mere loneliness. Puffers, in case you aren't up on your neo- participation termin- ology, are those of us in the twilight zone between strollers (as in "C'mon Martha, put down that knitting so s we can stroll over and see how the Filberts" nasturtiums are and those prime physical specimens at the top of the heap, those unwinded and jaunty joggers. Aside from being in lousy shape, puffers "don't get no respect." At least strollers are flabby, and happy to be that way. Pullers, however, aspire to a more firm plane of muscle, but just don't have the stamina it takes. Still, we puffers hardly are given a fair shake (never mind how much we jiggle as we I mean, did dogs snarl at Harry Jerome as he sprinted? Did sassy kids insult Bruce Kidd as he flapped across the finish line? No, those athletes were given respect, despite their idyosyncracies in style.

Kind friends gave my spouse and I I he also puffs) fleece-lined white sweat jackets very elegant little items with pointed hoods and hand-warmer pockets. We looked almost dashing as we huffed around the block. However, we still got no respect. On the first night, a student-driver was so startled by the sight of our portly, hooded bodies, he made a left turn into a fire hydrant. His teacher chastized us for our lack of 'tail-lights and took down our names and license number. On the second night, a neighboring terrier became so incensed at our trespass on his block that he ambushed us with a veritable paroxysm of shrill barking. His owner _came outside, snatched "him to her bosom and glared at us with sheer hate for upsetting little Pooksy- babv." Discouraged We were getting discouraged. We tried running later, when it was very dark, but we kept slipping over loose gravel. We tried running in the back alley, but it was even darker there so we fell into a mud puddle and tripped over a garbage pail. We tried running at suppertime. but whole families left the table to stand at their dining room windows and watch us. We were glad the windows were closed we were sure they made rude remarks. Once four people playing bridge in front of their picture window gave us a standing ovation as we chuffed past for a third lime. On another occasion, when I was going it alone, two pre-teen boys shouted after my retreating figure, "Hey Joey! Lookit that crazy lady running around the block." Another time they threw snowballs at me. How could they have missed such a ponderous moving target? .Where or when we run now, I'm not telling. But late some night, don't be alarmed to see two heaving forms, costumed as overly sturdy elm trees, lurch down vour street.
