It's Such a Perfect Day

"Just a perfect day
You make me forget myself
I thought I was someone else
Someone good

Oh it's such a perfect day
I'm glad I spent it with you
Oh such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
--Lou Reed
I look outside my cubical window and see only blue sky from above. The temperature is 56 degrees and predicted to rise to 60 by quitting time. For the first time in what seems like ages, I have a burning itch.

And it's not rash related.

It is a desire to actually run.

You still might want to slap some cream on that. You know, just in case.

Happy running to you.

Well, you know what Lou says. You're going to reap just what you sow. Nothing like sowing a run on a beautiful day.

I have that same itch!

Does your Gu come fortified with antibiotics?

It should.

Roisin said...

Yay! Although, I still think itching and running are a bad combination...just, not right. It looks like we'll finally be getting some good running weather in the midwest :)

Marcy said...

LMAO at Xenia!

Ehhh it's windy though. I just came in from outside :P

Spike said...

run...run like the wind...or run only with the wind. because running against the wind suck, even when it is 60 degrees

Your cubicle has a window? What kind of luxury office do you work in, anyway? Wait a minute...you're blogging from WORK, aren't you? For shame... ;)

Seriously, get out there and take advantage. I did 6 after work yesterday and it was fantastic. I'm looking forward to my 5 tonight even more.

Sláinte!

If it were 60 degrees here in FL, we'd be in sweaters ;)

Enjoy your "scratch"!

Scratch it.

It's miserable here, cold and rainy, but at least it soothes my itch.

X-Country2 said...

That itch seperates the runners from the non-runners.

Vava said...

So true, but as a devoted Lou Reed fan I can't help pointing out that he wrote "made" not "make" in the "me forget myself" line...

But that doesn't change the sentiment, or the weather. Happy running (and drinking)!
