Well, it won't be 4 days in a row, I can promise you that.  I was all decked out in an orange shirt and orange shorts.  I planned on running 2.5 miles today, but about a quarter of a mile into it my knee started to hurt.  In hind sight, I should have turned around then.  When I got to Brown Rd. I decided I would only do the 1.5 mile loop.  I ran over to the canal and started heading back.  I saw two old ladies way off in the distance wearing bright pink shirts and black leggings.  I couldn't tell if they were coming towards me or going the same direction I was.  After a while I determined they were going the same way I was.  My knee wasn't bothering me too much, so I decided I would do my 2.5 miles after all.  This would give me a chance to make a funny joke to the old ladies.  I caught them shortly after Adobe Rd.  I asked, "were we supposed to wear pink today?  I thought it was orange."  One of them said, "You didn't get the memo."  I finished my run and felt strong, even though my pace was slow.  Two hours later and now my knee really hurts.  Stupid old ladies.
