Observations While Running ...
DUDE: You know how birds make that "V" formation then they fly? You know why one side of the "V" is always longer?
ANOTHER DUDE: No, why is one side longer?
DUDE: There's more birds on that side.
I love that joke. Thank you, Chris Bohan.
Running by the Hocking, however, I saw something I'd never seen before. One flock of birds (not sure what they were) flew up from one band, as another flew up from the far bank. Each was in a single, opposing, diagonal line. The two lines came together gracefully over the river - creating a "V".
Here's a reminder for runners who sit by the pool or wear the flip-flops. Put sunscreen on your feet. Because they can burn. Yes they can.
Every now and then I get numbness or tingling in my fingers when I run. Not all the time. Today, for example, and a week or so ago. Answers? Anybody?

Thank you, Athens. Time to head home.
