I set my alarm for 6am and somehow managed to crawl out of bed and get myself dressed. As I looked outside my bed room window and felt the freezing air hit my face, yea that’s right because my windows are mad ghetto and broken and when I shut one end the other opens a crack, I wondered if this was a good idea. I checked my phone to see it was 12 degrees out. I figured DO IT LIVE. I put on my awesome running tights and shirt and like a tall black ninja in a face mask I headed to meet my new running group.
Ok, total fashion aside: how sick would be if I painted my face mask like the bottom of a Día de los Muertos skull? Sick right. Any artists wanna help me do volunteer please!
Luckily, it was so early I didn’t have time to be witty or smart when I entered the Dunkin Donughts. Yea, apparently that’s the hot meeting spot for running groups. I’m actually not hating because the alternative is to stand in the cold so touché, well played indeed, boys.
I notice a warlock in a full Addidas track suit and recognized him as one of my own. Then our wolf pack grew by one more when my new 55 year old BFF entered. Skinny Albert., I mean his name was obviously Albert but like anyone I fall in love with I nicknamed him right away. Let’s be real I’ll be calling Albie in no time and asking him for dating advice.
I gotta say it was overall really fun. I can make fun of it all I want but it was a great morning run. Like I said I cannot wait to force Albie to be my new friend. I’ve always wanted a 55 year old BFF in my neighborhood. He’s already so cool. He talks about movies and doesn’t know anyone’s name, which I love. You know the kinda chubby fella in the baseball movie? Yes, Ablie I do know, Jonah Hill. We’re a match made in heaven. A true warlock.
Plus, he’s a speed demon. I mean I can crack all the jokes I want but I was just keeping up with him. In fairness, he’s doing a half this weekend.
I’ve committed to these “morning runs” every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 6am. So, I’ll have more tales to tell.
