this morning, as i was working on my 40 minute tempo run, i was passing a new building down the street. there were sprinklers going, and i knew i couldn’t completely avoid them. let’s face it, running through sprinklers in 43° is not as refreshing as it might sound.
suddenly, the image of Mario jumping over bars of fireballs in Bowser’s castle came to mind.
so i tried to Mario it through the sprinklers.
i got nailed on the last one.
these are the thoughts that go through my head when i’m running at 6:30 am.
(i won’t go into how my power phrase to get through last week’s pace run was “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”)
