The Commoner's Late Night Run

I didn't get out for my run until 6PM.  On top of that I didn't get home from the board meeting until 10PM last night.  So the last thing I wanted to do was go for a run.
But Danny always convinces me that I should go.  So I made a deal with myself. I could run as slow as I wanted but I couldn't walk and I didn't have to do intervals when I slowed down.  That's when I do intervals when I start slugging.
This baby could have outrun me.  But it didn't really matter because  I did it.  I ran .  Even though I was tired and it was late and cold and windy.  I did it.  Oh and it was only three miles because on days when i have other things to do I have to shorten my runs.  That's okay because you do what you have to do.
Speaking of marathons.  For the third year in a row my city.  My hometown city-New York has rejected me from their marathon.  I don't know why I do it but I always enter and I always get rejected. Blast you New York why do you always reject me.
At least once there was a Bicycle Marathon.  I think I wasn't even racing then so maybe someone gave it to me.

What ever.  I have DC.  I'll run there.  Phooey NY 

Anyway.  The highlight of the day was NOT Making it in to the marathon because I already have a marathon this year.

Here's the song of the day for you.

Graceland from the Central Park Concert by Paul Simon.  Why Graceland?  I really want to go there. And Central Park in honor of my rejection.
