I’d miss my train if I didn’t start running soon. I’d waited out the sun and temperature as long as I could. Just have to make do. Out of the chute I was going along at a clip much faster than I have been running. Little tweaks in my right calf and left hamstring. By the middle of the run I was going at a quick and steady pace. The wind was cooling, though the humidity was leaving me soaked. I heard the on-the-hour electronic chimes that are supposed to evoke a bell tower. Piss poor job. I’d have to cut my run in half or be sentenced to another hour plus for the next train. I hit my watch, looked down and was pleasantly surprised. An actual 5k at a respectable 5k pace. I did a short cool-down and hit the showers.
