Hank gives some advice on jogging to young Fred.


Hank: Takes ten minutes for the pain to go, then you start to feel good.

Fred: Is it worth all the pain and sweat and exhaustion?

Hank: Adds years to your life.

Fred: Took years off that fellow wrote a book on running, what was his name, Jim Fixx?

Hank: Died at 52, sure, but his father died at 42.

Fred: Anyway, how do you take your mind off all the pain?

Hank: I hum Zippedydoodah. Sun comes out and the birds start singing.



Instead of Zippedydoodah, maybe an iPod is the modern exercise pain-reliever.
