3 miles (13:01)

i wouldn’t even know what to wear to a regatta. probably requires socks. dammit.  i probably never mentioned this before but I HATE THE STUPID WIND!!!!!! 20 mph  today, so the church loop, with its east-west direction and wind blocks, was the obvious choice. naturally i instead ended up at the jackalope, which is north-south and totally open. just a 3-mile grind (13:01) and a reminder that some days aren’t fun. you run just because you run.  i was listening to a depressing poe album, adding to the joy. got up this morning, rolled out of bed, I spilled a diet coke. seriously could there be more depressing lyrics than that? bright side: they decorated the Crazy Homeless Guys’ gazebo for christmas, so the course is quite festive, in a desperate people trying to survive till thanksgiving sort of way. i stood on that empty street alone, i said, “I’m ready for my close-up now, Mr. Demille.” Pirate Guy seems to have lost his trench coat and is wearing a yellow rain slicker, which is a comical, though terribly sad,  sight. i’d shoot a photo, but i’m scared of him. and somewhere along the way i ran. because that’s what you do while listening to poe and dodging homeless guys in rain slickers and pretending you’re a kite. life isn’t always a hallmark christmas movie. can’t talk to a psycho like a normal human being …
