Coming Up Short
Do you know what I really hate?
When I'm doing a training run around the Jackie Kennedy Onassis Reservoir in Central Park, trying to increase my time, pushing myself, regulating my breathing, checking my pulse.
And I'm overtaken by:
(1) a group of elementary-school age kids,
(2) a man who looks like he's 90 years old,
(3) a woman wearing Dr. Scholls clogs with no socks, and
(4) a midget. Yes, a little person. She had much shorter legs than I did, and she SMOKED me.
I really don't know what compels me to keep on running, even though I'm obviously not naturally good at it.
