Who Wears Short Shorts


runnerNew York Governor David Paterson is now a cover model after being photographed and interviewed for an upcoming piece in Runner’s World Magazine. And people think the magazine industry is dying! I’m renewing my subscription to Runner’s World RIGHT NOW.

Because he’s legally blind, Paterson didn’t play sports as a child and only got into running recently in his 40s. His wife, Michelle who is an avid runner herself helped push him along by challenging him to participate in the 1999 New York Marathon. “…Her first thought was to tell me not to; she knew it would be the fastest way to get me to do it,” Paterson told Runner’s World. “When I finished the race I had to go to the hospital. I’d become hypothermic.”

Maybe she was still angry about him having affairs at a Days Inn on the upper west side…

Since he’s, you know, blind, he requires a “companion” to keep him from running into a plate glass window or whatever. And how does the governor entertain his brain while he runs? “I hum music to myself while I run, usually old disco tunes, or inspirational songs like ‘I Will Survive’ and the ‘Rocky’ themes, or some old TV themes like ‘Hawaii Five-O’ and ‘Secret Agent Man,’ ” said Paterson.

Nothing says winner more than Gloria Gaynor hummed by a blind man in short shorts…
