( 1:47 AM ) teahouse
Yesterday I ran the Race to Deliver 4 Mile race in Central Park.
It was gray and cold. Perfect running weather, actually.
The highlight of the race was the fact that Joan Rivers was there to cheer us on. She made some opening remarks before the race, and was there at the finish line yelling for us.
She is a 71 year old woman. She was wearing tight leather pants, a tight shirt, dark glasses and a huge fur coat. It was 9:30 on a Sunday morning. She looked hung over. Her voice was more hoarse than usual.
At the finish line, I heard a 70-something year old man yell out, "Joan, talk to me, baby!"
She waved at him and screamed, "Hello, Pussycat!!"
What a character.
