At this time last year, I ran alone. At times, it was a little creepy. I'd hear a noise and get spooked...pick up the pace a little...
At this time last year, I was in solitude. I'd make conversation with the bunnies and skunks....I'd swear at the paper delivery guys because they drive like fools....
My friend Kate joined me once for a pre-dawn run in my 'hood and she said, "Wow, there really isn't another soul around!"
I replied, "Did you think I was kidding? Solitude."
I got so used to my solitude that any time I'd see another person, I'd say to myself, "A human! They DO exist!"
Then there was that time a voice came through the fog and took a couple of years off my life.

In the past few months, something changed, and now, I haven't run alone in over a month.
I can't imagine that my persuasive skills have improved that much in the past year....perhaps people are becoming more daring.....or perhaps everyone wants in on the selfies.
Yes. It must be the selfies.
Yesterday, there were six of us running together in my 'hood at 5am. Six.
I don't know how this happened, but I sure do like it.
And here's the selfie.

It appears that the crazy is contagious...
When do you run/workout?
Anyone want to join us next week?
