“Is this the right time to mention that running, and exercise in general, is against my religion?” I ask as we drop our things in the lockers.
“And what religion is that?”
“I worship on the altar of Mars Inc. and Hershey Co.”
He laughs at that. “Relax. We’re just going to do some light running.”
“Oh, okay. See, I should have told you before, in my religion it’s only acceptable to run when somebody’s chasing you.”
Law’s looks me up and down. “I mean, I guess I could run behind you if that’s what you need.”
“Cool. Thanks. Could you also emulate an angry carnivore, like a tiger or a bear or a T-Rex? It helps if I feel like my life is in danger.”
“Man, I’ve gotta go practice my roaring,” he says.
