It could have been worse :-)

This morning I was running my usual 5 mile run around Georgia Tech area – staying very close to the one route that I know after getting lost last week πŸ™‚ – when a car pulled up ahead of me about 50 yards on this desolate street and a young lady got out and started hysterically yelling towards me. The first thought that went thru my head is that she must be some Georgia Tech student mistaking me for one more of those Indian professors – who undoubtedly flunked her in her last quiz πŸ™‚

The plot really thickened when a very well built young guy got out of the car next πŸ™‚ Just when I was weighing my options of showing a clean pair of heels (thru my bright blue shoes – no less πŸ™‚ – in keeping with the shoes-match-shirt mindset that I am in these days πŸ™‚ ), I realized that it was indeed Rachel and her husband Andy! I have run with Rachel a couple of times in the past and I still remember how fast she ran. She kept up with a conversation the whole 7:45 pace run and I merely grunted “ummm” and “hmmm” throughout! In my defense, I am twice her age πŸ™‚ (The mileage is even more πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ )

It was great running into her this morning after almost four months! Plus I finally got to meet Andy – which she had been threatening to do for quite some time πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Hope to run with Rachel and Andy soon!

By the way, I completely forgot to ask how she did in her quiz πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
