Is this an interesting week or what? I had that book thing. There was the Airbus-in-the-Hudson thing, all the Inauguration ballyhoo, and on and on.

Today I went long, not because It’s in the program, but because I felt like it. Circuit of Bay Farm Island, plus all along the beach both ways, and a detour to the bagel shop on the way back. 15.5 miles total, at a variety of speeds.
The bagels and lox spread were a whim. I’ve never gone shopping on a run before. The staff at the bagel place did not bat an eye at this sweaty guy in a marathon tee shirt. (Yes, tee shirt. anyone on the East Coast reading this should know we’re having a heat wave at present). Carrying the paper bag was not a problem, in fact I did that last mile at 8:00 pace.
Cathi was enthusiastic over my choice of breakfast, but then she said: “You know, it’s strange. I was thinking yesterday that it would be nice to have bagels for breakfast, and maybe you could pick some up, but I wasn’t sure how you would carry them, so I didn’t ask.”

One more for the list.

    Kudos to you. You sneak out the house without waking the wife and then come back with breakfast – Dan could learn a thing or two here.

    Yeah, I scored a point or two there. But the coincidence was startling.

    How cool, you can read Cathi’s mind and run with food, too. Very impressive.
