Today I get to add another name to my Bloggers I've Met in Real Life list. I'm up in Kingman for my sister's wedding. I made arrangements to meet up with Kerry. I planned out a route to run that I used to do a lot in high school, but because Kerry had to go to work early, we just met at his house. It's probably a good thing we didn't do my route since it's on rocky roads, and it was dark out. I knew it was going to be cold, but I didn't wear a whole lot more than I usually do. We fat guys have good insulation.
Kerry's a super nice guy. It was fun talking to him while we ran. We kept a nice easy pace, which was good because the elevation was a little higher than I'm used to, and nature started calling around mile 3. I felt so embarrassed, but I wasn't about to tell Kerry I had to go. Then with a mile to go it almost became too unbearable. I finally confided in Kerry about my predicament. He got a good laugh out of it which helped. Well, Nan, maybe someday I'll perfect the art of the PAS. Until then, I'll just enjoy the company and conversation of my fellow bloggers.
