OK, so I’m (unfortunately) not in San Francisco. I’m in Oklahoma, which is almost as good. Ha! If you believe that, I have some beachfront property in Wyoming I’d like to sell you. I actually like Wyoming, so maybe that metaphor doesn’t work. If you ever get a chance, go to Glendo Lake in the Summer. I call it The Wyoming Riviera. Beautiful, peaceful, and the best thing ever. I digress. I can tell that I’m getting wanderlustful again.
Today’s 5K was a quick one. I wore shorts and a T-shirt. Yes, that’s right, Jim Inhofe, I wore shorts and a T-shirt on February 7, 2017. It was a warm and peaceful night…. Although I like warm weather, but you shouldn’t really have it in February. Our unseasonably warm temperatures are NOT due in any part to climate change. Climate change is a farce perpetuated by the ‘liberal’ media. Yeah, want to hear more about that beachfront property?
I ran/jogged quite a bit of my 5K this evening. I was quite happy that my total time was under 40 minutes.
I had someone ask me the other day, “What happens if you get injured on a 5K–what do you do?”
Well, the answer is, “It depends on how serious the injury is.”
If I’m incapacitated, then I don’t know if I can answer that. If I’m still mobile, I will pick the shortest path home and see if I can limp my way there. As a last resort, I’d call Melissa or Walker and have one of them pick me up, possibly literally, from my current location.
Many times, if you injure yourself, you can sit down and rest for a few minutes, and then get up and continue. Depending on the severity of your injury, there are other alternatives like calling for help. This is a good reason to have an Uber or a Lyft account on your phone.
Please pay attention to where you are, to the landscape, and to your surroundings at all times. Safety first.
