Running quote of the week

“I love track running. There’s something about that red 400-meter circle that lets my brain switch off—no roads to cross, no bikes to watch out for.” – Kate Carter

Running in circles while my friends ran at Bethpage

I forgot to mention the invisible airplane on the track
Today's run (track): 4.1 miles

Due to a science fair scheduling conflict, I needed to run extra early this morning. That was fine, as I'm trying to go back to early day running. The downside was that I missed SIORs run-palooza at Bethpage this morning. This was another Life Time Run Club adventure and today's group included both TPP and KWL. Long before they all went out, I was at the Syosset HS track getting in 16 laps. The Runsketeers had a great time and I'm very jealous.

I always hope that the track will be empty when I arrive, but there's usually someone there before me. That was case today. It was mostly walkers, but there were a couple of guys running intervals and one person run/walking wearing a pair of big studio headphones. I tuned everyone out for the most part rather than construct back stories of every person on the track like I usually do. I just wanted to get through the workout and stay on schedule.

I'm going to need to go out early again tomorrow. I'd like to do at least five miles so I'll probably run somewhere outside my neighborhood. I can't go too far or too long, because I need to be ready for yet another science fair. But no such problems next weekend. After Monday, science fair season will be over.

    1. I missed you guys too. I was following all the logistics drama on the shared text. Not quite the same as being with you guys, but at least it was entertaining. :-)

  2. Man wearing shants or ports (shorts over pants) backstory: turkey obsessed executive ignores running exoert's advice on everything especially fashion.

    1. Perhaps, but I pulled it off today in track pants and black windbreaker. Just to prove I'm fashion flexible, no shorts. Also, there were more turkeys outside my office on Thursday and I didn't even post a picture of them. So who's obsessed now?
