First timer

7mi. I arrived alone, and my first two over the bridge laps were solo. Lanae came and ran with me for the thrid lap, then I did the 6 sprints that I cheesed-out on doing last week.

It was my first time trying to land “underfoot” on a hill since having my runner’s eval. I might have done a little better, concentrating on taking shorter steps and being pulled forward from the hips is what I’m after. At least in my head.

I ran the last three sprints, with Keith, he was way ahead of me on his first dash, I was closer on the next two. Felt good, I was happy to have it done before the familiar “dawn’s early light.”

The first? That would be the shower experience. I waited for about 5 minutes as a homeless man completely showered, shaved, brushed his teeth, and went through too many steps to clean himself with a small washcloth or sock. I am fortunate I’m not in that situation, it was a time to think and be thankful for what I do have.
