Spring has returned to the Capital!
As I went for my long run the sun was shining, ducks were swimming on the canal (What!?! People were skating on that thing less than a week ago!), and there were lots of runners along the path.
I mentioned in my last post, I get a kick out of chasing down other runners, and with the weather finally turning warm, there were LOTS of them to chase down.
I love to spy these runners from afar, and imagine myself as a two-legged Pacman, chasing after those dastardly ghosts as they pointlessly try to outrun me.
I run up on one runner, and finally overtake them . . . DO DUH LEE DO! Inkey gone – 200 points!
The next one is in my sights, and suddenly I’m there: DOO DUH LE DOO! that’s Blinky taken care of! 400 points!
DOO DUH DE LOO! There goes Pinky (800 points!) and Clyde (1600 points!)! I’m on a roll!
OK, It might be a little juvenile, but it gives me something to occupy my mind with while I’m out on 100 minute runs.
