Total Distance

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.

Behold the power of CHEESE. I mean seeing other people running. Makes us do things we might not do otherwise.

Glad to hear you still have the wheels to catch old ladies. Careful with the knee.

orange on orange fashion is timeless.

honestly, old ladies wearing pink is extremely suspicious. if you remember their drivers license numbers, i would report them.

How's the knee Mr. Burt?

It doesn't hurt anymore, but now the whole family has the flu. I don't realize how bad it is until I do something physical. Like walking up stairs.
