Putting together a solid running streak is similar to the act of running itself. It seems simple, just one foot in front of the other to run, or just one run after another run for a good string of them. But in practice both the act of running and the streak of runs are much […]
Yesterday evening I got that slightly eerie, but not in a creepy scary way, feeling that I was being watched while I drank a beer and worked the barbecue in my backyard. A quick glance upward and there was the crow, staring me right in the face. This morning while running out down a tranquil […]
