The One Where Phoebe Runs

By Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am — Filed under:

Awhile back, I wrote about the episode of Friends where Phoebe and Rachel run:

At the time, I couldn’t find a video of what I was talking about, but maquiem has been kind enough to edit the video for me. Sadly, the most important line about the episode wasn’t included:

“I run like I did when I was a kid because that’s the only way it’s fun. Didn’t you ever run so fast that you thought your legs were going to fall off?”

Running for the joy of running is something I haven’t done in a long time. I kind of hit a breaking point in my running and I have been playing DDR to exercise instead. As long as I get my exercise in daily, I’m healthy, but I feel a little sadness at my break with running. The thought of turning on my iPod Nano and Nike+ just makes me cringe right now, so I’ll stick with the dance pad and Dance Dance Revolution.

    I remember that episode, and that specific quote! And I do remember how fun it was to run as a kid, that is, until we were forced to run in PE. I was always one of the slowest when we ran, which fueled my lifelong hatred of running. It’s also when I started “cheating” on number of laps and it marks the first time I didn’t like our outside physical activity hour.

    So I do remember how fun running used to be, for those years up to fourth grade.
