Running on Empty

Dear Diary:

After moving to the Upper West Side this year and fulfilling a lifelong dream of moving to Manhattan, I decided to participate in this summer’s New York City Triathlon. I thought the training had been going well and was feeling quite good about myself until the other day.

Running up the rolling hills on the north end of Central Park, I was passed by a speedster who asked if I was injured.

“No, that’s just the way I run,” I replied.

As he took off up the hill I heard him say, “I used to run like that when I had a stress fracture.”
