Superman - Black Lace

Lyric:- 'Superman! Woah!' - Longi, Vanni & Manera

Song Choice:- I can't say that Black Lace have ever been on my playlist and it's always been a definite sit down record at any disco I've ever been to since 1983 but it does highlight my theme of being your very own 'Superman or Supergirl quite nicely today.

You see I believe we are all Superman (I'll make it single sex to make it easier from here) and generate our own Krypton and Kryptonite. According to Wiki, Krypton is a distant planet which orbits a red sun. Before its destruction, it was home to a great civilisation which boasted advanced science and technology. In many versions of the story, it was either barren or icy, and often the home to huge crystals and crystalline structures. It is the home world of Superman, but also to Supergirl, Krypto and other Kryptonians. Unfortunately, the destruction of the planet also created Kryptonite, radioactive chunks of the planet which are deadly to all Khryptonians and deadly to us too, I believe. 

Scary stuff eh? Maybe someone should make a film or ten!!! Christopher Reeve will always be Clark Kent for me...

Anyway, as I've already stated, we are all Superman. It's just that we don't know it, or possibly acknowledge it. I coach lots of runner's to achieve their PB's and getting them out of their 'Runner's Rut'. Yet in time, post-race, they are soon back to their old ways and old running times. Just look on FaceBook at folk broadcasting negative vibes about their lives.

Their exposure to self-administered Kryptonite is obvious.

The sad thing is, the destruction then seeps into other areas of their lives. For instance, their professional life then takes a back seat and careers that have taken years to build, can be destroyed in an instance, ask Big Sam Allardyce! What a plonker...What was he thinking? He certainly didn't have his Superman outfit on that day! Or on quite a few days perhaps.

My question to you is, 'Did you have your Superman outfit on today?' or did the Daily Kryptonite just sneak up on you when you were least expecting it? It can you know...and before you know you are Superseded.
