      "Distance from Wakefield to Pullman is: 4576.1 Miles"

       

      If it was less than 4500 miles I'd do  it, but that last 76.1 miles pushes over my travel limits for a 5K race. 

        I live less than a mile from Wakefield. Off the top of my head I can think of over 55 5Ks yearly. Most of them are just 2 bucks on Wednesday. The course runs round the lake. In the summer they have a marathon and ultra that runs around the same lake many, many, many, many, many times.

          That's crazy talk.

          I literally don't care that I use the word literally incorrectly.

            I am running hills in Wakefield in the morning.

              "So, you know, people say the cold weather bothers me; only certain situations bother me. If it's raining and it's really cold and dry out, it's really hard to hold onto a knuckleball with your fingertips when it's that dry, but I haven't had a problem the last two outings I've had."

                Devin is a sophomore, and he plays the forward position.

                  This morning when I was running my hill loops in Wakefield, I saw this Wakefield High School girl waiting for the bus. She was wearing only a hooded sweatshirt and leggings that covered about half of her calves, no gloves, and no hat. It was 2ºF (-17ºC). I passed her twice, which means she was there at least 7 minutes. She was holding a Dunkin' Donuts cup though.

                  Runners run.

                    'Wake, he lay, in a field. The sky rippled blue above him and blackbirds flew like darts. He thought to himself of what it meant to be alive, of the significance and insignificance of perception. He wondered if she ever thought of him and there in the dewy grass gave in once more to the flow of memory as it drifted back to her, once more, as it always did.
