Running can be boring, especially for someone who refuses to listen to music and who runs alone. One good thing is that I am always listening (for cars) and looking around and observing.
Yesterday I came across this sight. I had to stop and take a picture. I didn’t know if the picture would come out or not, but it did.
Take a look:
Look in the sky of this image. There is a dark line running across it. It is perfectly straight, goes across the whole sky and seems to even intersect the contrail from a jet. I took two pictures and then started my run again. As I got to the stop sign ahead, the line was gone. I looked up and it wasn’t there anymore.
There is probably some reasonable answer as to what this is, but I was fascinated by it. I’ve seen lots of interesting things in the sky, but never a long black straight line.
Anyway, back to my boring run.
I hope to one day qualify for Boston… that is no secret. So whether I want to or nor; whether it is cold or hot; if I am tired or sore… I run. I have to make my goal. Now, once I do, that will be interesting. What next… I think I have a few years to make to make that decision.
Today I am taking off as I have been running for 6 days straight and my hip is beginning to rebel. Saturday morning TJ and I are going to run the Donut Dash. @BigBigGeek is unfortunately hurt and can’t do it this year. I guess I’ll get his share of the donuts!
Have a great weekend and when you run… look at the sky.
