8.00 Miles in 1:12:42
Mood: Windswept and Desperate
Soundtrack: The Mediocre Show
It was exceptionally windy on this run. Fortunately, it was also mostly warm, but wind can get kind of irritating. Fortunately it died down towards the end of the run. Unfortunately, that is when I really started having to poop. The desperate part of my mood came from me being desperate to get some place that had a working toilet. Egad, the last mile or so was uncomfortable. And it's a catch 22, to get the a restroom faster, you have to run...when you run, the thudding vibrations make your bowels more uncomfortable...however, if you slow down, it takes longer to get to a restroom.
One last thing, I love the sign in this picture. Slow bump ahead doesn't really work as a warning without a comma. It makes it seem like a slow moving bump is lurking ahead and lying in wait to pounce. Bad sign design, but it makes me happy.
