Well, I just went and checked out the route (thank you for the Google map, Joe Garland) for Saturday’s 5 mile “run for fun” in Bronxville. Why it’s called a “fun” run, I don’t know. It’s not exactly fun. It’s extremely hilly, and you have to run the extremely hilly route twice. I shall have to eat my Wheaties beforehand.
I have no idea who is going to enter this race. If it’s people expecting a “fun” little run, but haven’t checked out the route, it should be entertaining to see the shocked facial expressions upon seeing that first big hill. Or the second or third one.
In honor of the upcoming race, here is today’s haiku:
The hills of Bronxville
A run designed by sadists
Why do I do this?
