They Are Not Runners

The leaves have turned. The landscape is an incredibly beautiful collage of red, yellow and orange and the air is cool and crisp.

As I run along, the occasional pedestrian looks at me strangely, sometimes commenting on the colder temperatures and clearly bemused by the fact that I am (a) wearing shorts and (b) running.

They don’t understand.

They can’t.

They are not runners.

10.5 miles today.
