It is a beautiful fall day in Boston, and I have a holiday from classes and rotations. I decided to go on a long run and take my camera, something I have been hankering to do for a while.
Run run run. *snapshot* Run run run.
I was having a swell time. Everyone in Cambridge seemed to be walking or running on Memorial Drive. I suspected that people were enjoing the gorgeous weather and stocking up on Vitamin D.
Please visit my photoblog for a full glimpse of all my pictures.
Suddenly my serene jog was interrupted by a crowd of runners approaching from the distance. Motocycles, polic cars, then a stampede coming staight for me. What is going on? I thought the Boston Half Marathon was on Saturday?
Of course. I had no idea that today was the Tufts Health Plan 10k for Women.
My first thought: Yay, I have my camera!
My second thought: This is awkward. Should I continue jogging against the crowd? Should I stop and wait, pretending that I'm taking pictures for someone in the race?
My third thought: Woohoo! Let's go.
So today I made a brief unplanned 2.0 mile dash in their 10k. Then I turned off on Massachusetts Avenue. I had forgotten that racing was such fun!
Go Runners, Go! Thanks for letting me join you briefly!
