Interesting evenings

Staying at a hotel in downtown Louisville, I have had a couple interesting, disturbing experiences.

Two of the last three nights, I have gone to a nearby convenience store for unnecessary snacks.

Both nights, a confrontation occurred between the store employees and a customer. In each case, the store had barred the customer for some previous experience. In each case, the employees became abusive toward the customer. The first time, an employee shoved the customer to the floor. Tonight, an employee chased the customer from the store and challenged him to a fight. The customer engaged in a shouting match as he walked away. Each confrontation involved different people.

I regularly go convenience stores near the Shire in New York for unnecessary snacks. Never have I witnessed a confrontation.

The moral I take? No more snacks.

See you along the Trail.

Virtual 5K – the result

My virtual 5K, sponsored by Cutch’s Crew to support Pirates Charities took place in the Louisville Waterfront Park. I ran the first kilometer and the final .75 kilometers. In between, I alternated running and walking as songs changed on the iPod. The result came out like this:

Virtual 5K – the beginning

As part of my self-care regime (which is going OK, not great), I resolved to run my first 5K ever. I chose a virtual 5K, sponsored by Cutch’s Crew to support Pirates Charities.

My efforts did not move as quickly as I hoped, so I ended up walking and running on 4 April 2015 in Louisville. Here’s how things looked at the beginning:

Purple flowers, Second Street, Louisville

Purple Flowers Louisville November 9

Delicate purple petals
graced the way to
Christ Church Cathedral this morning,
for a wonderful worship experience
with friends expected and unexpected,
although the plan to go to an early service
so the Steelers game could be viewed,
which turned out to be something of a disaster
given how poorly they played.
