10K run in 56mins. Cool but humid… — at Big Creek Greenway Trailhead – Fowler Park.
A CNN headline report this evening starts this way – “Two suspected U.S. drone strikes killed 11 al-Qaeda militants in southern Yemen on Saturday, Yemeni military officials said.”
There is an irony when Yemen military “suspects” that it is a US drone but is absolutely sure that those killed are al-Qaeda militants 🙂
It was barely 5:30 am and I was enjoying my coffee watching the rain when Nikita walks down the staircase from her bedroom, my iPhone in her hand, complaining “Siri is mean”! Apparently, first thing in the morning, she asked her “Am I awesome” and Siri politely answered “I cannot answer that” 🙂 And with that, we are off to a flying start to this Sunday!!
Usual Sunday watering hole with Sharmila for Mother’s Day dinner. Instead of fancy tables, we decided to sit at our usual bar chairs chatting with the staff. So far, one guy fell and cracked his head (paramedics and fire engine here), one table had a proposal (successful) and one table had a candle overturned on the tablecloth!!! 🙂 To think, I was the one who over drank tonight 🙂 🙂
7 years back to this very day May the 20th, then 38 years old, I went for a run. I promptly passed out in Dallas heat but went back the next morning and eventually fell in love with it. In 7 years, I have made some of my best friends on the road, enjoyed some of the best scenic beauties in over 10 countries, learnt (again) how to run barefoot (and then minimalist), raised money for over 50 charities, ran thru nearly 20 pairs of shoes, singlehandedly propped up Starbucks quarterly results 🙂 …. Would not have happened without my wife who got me into it in the first place and some early encouragement from John McGehee (who runs better than most I know at the age of 63!!!)
