Temps here have also been frigid and the wind cuts deep into my running gear - through both long sleeve tops I have been wearing. But it's a nice change to get back on the Rock Creek Trail. This has become my second home as and master competitor can understand how a running loop can define one's existence.
Please indulge me in a whining moment: I have some plantar fascitis going on in my right foot, my right knee is acting up, and I pulled something in the back of my left leg. That said, I made it further than ever before on my 45 minute out segment of the run. Run 45, turn around and run back. That's how I roll.
Here' s a chance for readers to weigh in on a cosmetic issue. Check out the photo at left, old master man throwing together his signature tofu and veggies stir fry at a dinner party last evening. I shift through quite a few metamorphosis in my life...long hair, then short...both on the head and facial. So I'm into the Jeff Bridges look and my significant other says I look 100. So what if the guy at the computer store counter thought I was her father? Don't I have the right to look distinguished? I'm a PhD professor, and isn't this how they look?
Anyway, the debate is on: Let it grow and produce more of what I have going on, or a clean shave and my triathlete style haircut?
Let the votes roll in...what shall I do?
