Running: Cool Old Guy
Yesterday I was starting to panic about the start of the new semester. I have a new casebook for civ pro and a swindling number of days until the start of a new semester. So instead of buckling down, I went for a late afternoon 7 miler on the lakefront to the Foster Avenue beach and back. Along the way, I saw an old guy carrying a crane while he ran. I was so taken aback that I jogged backwards for a while so I could see his progress. Sure enough, he ran as far as he could, then walked for a bit with the cane, and then starting slowing running again. He is my new running hero.
