Indian Fall?

Wow. Just wow.

I snuck out of the office for a lunchtime run today, and man, did I luck out. Y’know how Indian Summer is the couple of days in fall when it gets warm and clear again, even though it’d frosted and whatnot? Today was like that, but back to the beautiful running that comes at the beginning of fall, when it’s cool and dry and you feel like you can run forever.

Today was one of those days. A gentle breeze blew, and the sun beat down on my ears. No birds sang, ’cause they’ve all gone south. But that didn’t spoil the run.

One of the highlights was seeing a new OCS class lined up outside of the Uniform Store waiting for uniform issue. They were still in the green utility uniforms and silver helmets that you wear the first week or two, and their Drill Instructor was making them “take ’em off” and “put ’em on” repeatedly.

Those poor folks. Man, their next four weeks are going to suck.

Mine? Going to rock. Two more weeks of work and change, and then a good long stretch of vacation.

Happy Yuletide!
