( 8:50 AM ) teahouse
Last weekend I ran the Anniversary Run, a 4.6K to celebrate the 46th anniversary of the New York Road Runners Club.
It was a pretty wretched race. It was pouring rain the whole time.
At one point, I ran up next to a gray-haired man wearing a baseball cap from my undergrad college. "Go, School X!" I shouted as I ran up alongside him.
He looked at me and smiled, "Yeah, Class of 65!" he responded. He was panting, and didn't look so great.
I sped up to overtake him. A minute later, he zoomed by me, so fast that within seconds I couldn't see him anymore. I think he beat me by at least 5 minutes.
Yeah, that's right. I was SMOKED by a panting, wheezing 60-year-old. #
