Summary: Taking it easy today because I’m going to try to joggle really fast in tomorrow’s Shamrock Shuffle race. Last year I ran a 34:37 which is just under a 7 min/mile pace. Not as confident I can run that fast this year.
Today, was an enjoyable day for joggling. A bit cool, true, but I’ve come to appreciate any day that doesn’t require 4 or 5 layers of clothes. The one drop experienced today was the result of showing off. While joggling, I like to throw a bean bag high over No Parking signs. Well, I did this as a pedestrian was approaching. I caught it and he smiled. When I looked at him and smiled back, one of the bags fell to the ground at his feet. He quickly picked it up and said, “You’re the man!”
I smiled and said thanks. He threw the bean bag back to me and I resumed my joggling. I ran with a smile the next half mile.
