i ran the selena course today. it’s the 20th anniversary of her death, and i needed 6 miles. done and done. the turnaround is at the memorial, so i stopped and sat for a while. the love people still have for her after all this time is amazing. there were flowers and balloons and many new messages on the bricks. older women wore black. younger people wore selena forever shirts. everyone looked like they miss her. it’s odd, because i wasn’t familiar with her at all during her years of fame. i only got to know her when we became running buddies. still, it was nice to see her amid the bouquets and the love. i hope she knows how much she’s missed. turning back into the wind, it struck me that after all this time, i’ve never listened to her music. so i dialed her up on spotify, and wow! perfect running soundtrack. we sang duets all the way back home. a good day to be alive. and a good day to be remembered.
