The Journey

“Some people never go crazy, What truly horrible lives they must live” - Charles Bukowski

We ran on the towpath with the Cannibal today.  Just six miles, but it was a good six miles.

The time  went by quickly as we listened to his stories of the Boston Marathon he had just returned from.  It was his first time back there in thirty years!

Running with nut jobs is a wonderful thing.  They are adventurers in every sense of the word.

Whether it's Boston or the Beast of Burden or Climbing Mount Everest backwards, the journey seems to mean just as much to them as the finish line.

Carol and I both signed up for our first Ultra.  I don't expect it to be easy, but with friends like Baba the Freak and The Cannibal, and all of the other nut jobs of the towpath,  I know it will be a most interesting journey.

Thanks for the inspiration, guys.
