The Nice Thing About Being Retired
It sure has been easier to maintain my running streak after I retired in 2005. Before that, I had to face whatever weather was available after 5 p.m. and had to run in towns all over the state. In fact, I have run in 103 Texas cities and 76 counties. I also made a few out-of-state and overseas trips (Germany, Okinawa, Japan and Korea) while working for the state, but somehow always got my run in. Heavy rain was correctly predicted for later this afternoon. So, I went out at midday in a pair of new shoes and did a 3.2 mile loop around town. Today makes 6 years and 4 months on my current streak.
