True Story!

I had some fun last night in the rain tapping out a 6.62 mile run (http://connect.garmin.com/activity/131629132) cut in half with some hill sprints.

Getting all tuned up for my Santa-Suit 5k in Burlington on December 10!

* * *

I'm on the train today and it's packed - standing room only. Faces pressed to the doors. This little man starts struggling through the crowd to get to the end of the car. "Excuse me! Please. I have to get through" ... but he gets no where cuz the train is packed.

"Please! I have to go and poo!" The guy is shaking. You can see he's fighting with every muscle to keep that stuff in. Everyone is astonished, but there's no way to get this guy through - the TRAIN IS PACKED!

So the guy beside me says, "I have a plastic bag. You can lay it on the floor, we'll turn the other way, you do your business and then when the train stops we can drop the bag into one of the garbage bins."

The guy is elated. In seconds the passengers turn their heads to the separate ends of the car, and the guy is in action. It's starting to smell pretty bad, so the guy beside me says "I need to have a smoke or I'm gonna puke right here." He lights up.

Just then the guy perching over the plastic bag says, "Excuse me sir, this is a no-smoking car!"

Wow, that is something else. What I found interesting is that before, there was no room for the guy to go poo, but he had enough room to poo in a bag? Sorry if I am picking things apart. Don't you hate when people do that while you are watching fictious movies. Take care, and glad you had a great run in the rain. Best wishes on Dec 10th.

So this is what I miss out on by living in a small town with no trains or subways. Huh!
