Pipe Dream #41: To Pretend Like I’m Not Working Out

Before the summer, I used to work out. Now, I work too long to really have time to work out, so I console myself by saying I’m doing “lifestyle exercise.” Basically, I hike around a lot.

On this particular spring day, I decided to go on a run in my favorite run place: The Path. I now invite you on a tour of the path.

Conditions were cloudy and wet; I was experimenting with manual mode on my camera. I like manual mode. I spend a lot of time in aperture priority, but manual mode is my second favorite.

I luf trees. Their silhouettes distract me from my burning lungs. Beautiful scenery is my second way of pretending that I’m working out.

I like flowers. They give me hope that the flaming hell kindled in my legs will be extinguished.

This bench is a fabulous duck viewing spot. Of course, I never stop to look at the ducks when I am running. That would be counterproductive to building my endurance.

Oh for pretty. I faked this macro shot.

Silt and sand.

And Lord of the Rings picturesquity.

Thank you for joining me. How did you like your tour? Feel free to tip your tour guide and fill out a satisfaction survey (in the comments section).

My polite tour guide voice is sick,

    The bridge was rebuilt into a doubly wide bridge. Sorry about the changes going on without you being here to absorb them :)
