"Sometimes I just can't function. My heart's spaghetti junction."

Sometimes it's more enjoyable to climb a steep incline, and then run downhill the rest of the way home. But that's clockwise. There isn't anyway to run counter-clockwise that way.

And why does this matter? Because, it's also impossible to run clockwise without crossing a million streets. I have a pretty safe three mile path navigated through my neighborhood, something that will prevent my getting struck by a bus, and going through as few intersections as possible.

Also, is it just me or is it always preferable to make left turns to right turns when running?

"And we don't know just where our bones will rest, to dust I guess,
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below."

As we say on the track:
"Run fast, turn left."
