Some wise man once said “Climate is what you expect. Weather is what you get”. How true!
Two years back, this week in Jan was so cold and so much ice and snow that my car could not even get to the property gate. Before I could clear the last hill, it slipped all the way down off road and stopped between two trees!! Today, it is a balmy spring like 61!! Go figure!
A relative fast 5K run…
First Sunday morning Bengali run. I was the only one who showed up 🙁 Well, I have the whole Starbucks to myself now 😉
Paid dearly for not packing my barefoot shoes for India. (Ran in my travel sneakers). Lot of pain in left lower calf muscle and a weird pain on my right foot right under where you have the shoelace knot. At around one mile, there was a sudden searing pain. I jumped up in surprise and pain. Could not put my foot down. After a few minutes, ran slowly back taking care to land on the outer edge of the foot. Any of you have had this problem before?
Wow! That was a pleasant surprise. Got down at DC and then immigration took all of 2 minutes. Customs was 0 minutes. Delta lady insisted that she will ensure I can catch the earlier flight. There was NO ONE at TSA Pre other than me – even the bored TSA ladies started small talk with me. Reached the terminal and Delta was yelling my name – walked into the earlier flight and they closed the door. And they were holding a first class set for me!! That reduces the thirty four hour trip to thirty two. However, only when I have had that first sip of Starbucks tall extra hot nonfat latte at Atlanta airport, will this trip be officially over for me 🙂
In the larger scheme of things, if The Lord intended us to fly, He would have certainly made it easier for us to make connections! 🙂 Made it to the flight to DC from Dubai. Of course, the prospect of sitting in a metal tube for 13 hours with little ability to step out and catch some fresh air makes me wonder if it was worth making the connection to begin with 🙂
