Beers consumed: 1 each
Bugs swallowed: 1
I had such a good run I was singing Ave Maria all the way home.
Actually I was singing So What by Metallica, but same thing, right?
Kate plays it cool; I of course am the eternal dork.
But…wow! I felt FABULOUS! All the bugs, tree branches, muddy creeks, death-defying leaps, turns and torturous inclines you’d think might wreck a run? They make me feel like I’m home.
They make me feel like I’m home, in bed, under a warm binkie.
I did eat one bug. It flew right into my mouth and hit the back of my throat and I coughed a little and then swallowed. No matter what they tell you, this is the real reason you inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth.
Until we meet again…
