But it does seem that the weeks have been a-flying by, doesn't it? Or is it just me? At least I have these Silver Liningness Sundays to help me stop and reflect! I took a nice bike ride this morning, then I ate like, two breakfasts. Now I'm sort of in a post 2-breakfast stupor, but here goes.
First of all, the morning was sort of cool/foggy. I snapped this pic at an intersection that is usually sunny at that time of morning
It felt good now that temperatures are usually pretty warm. I welcomed the coolness and the clouds keeping the sun out of my eyes. (Note to self: put that headlight on Alice).
Also, like last week, there was evidence of some sort of event going on along the bike path. I have yet to find out what it was, and I'm quite curious. I came upon a very large woman wearing a very large fluorescent green t-shirt, setting up an aid station. By "very large", I don't mean that she was a big girl, like in the UFC, but she was just large. Over 300 pounds, I'm certain.
There was another similarly large woman in the parking lot near this aid station. She was also wearing the very large fluorescent green "volunteer" t-shirt and seemed to be loading supplies for the volunteer station. On my return trip, both women were still there plus a sign that said "Rest Stop" and a table overflowing with bananas.
Now I'm really curious, but my feeble detective attempts on google have brought up nothing. And I'm not disrespecting on large women, not at all. It's just an atypical scene, hence the snoopiness.
In other curiosity news, I got an e-mail recently from brooksrunning.com wishing me a happy half-birthday. How the heck did they know it was my half-birthday? I hardly even keep track of whole-birthdays.
But anyways, after they were done reminding me that I'm that much closer to the big 5-0, they offered me free 2-day shipping and a running hat if I spent over $50. Hmmm... well, I'm a minimalist, but I started thinking...
I've never had racing flats. I just run races in the same shoes I run around for fun in. There were some racing flats I'd checked out a while ago, but didn't buy. I went to check them out again, and what do you know if they weren't $30 off to the bargain price of $55? It was destiny! (Or good targeted marketing)
I got 'em this week. I like 'em
|loud enough for ya?|
I took them for about a 2.5 miles test drive, and I think we'll get along nicely. Maybe I'll review them further once we've spent some quality time together. Oh, I like the hat too.
So Happy half-Birthday, or three-sevenths-Birthday, or whatever you're on! And if anyone knows what the heck was going on on that pathway this morning, text me, k?
