First off, I hope everyone had a festive Cinco De Mayo! I certainly celebrated with some authentic cuisine…
Today I continued the celebration with an early morning 5k+ run, a gym sesh, and a margarita at a local taco joint.
On my pre morning run, I got to thinking. Dangerous, I know. But seeing as how I dedicated this Spring to trying to get some of my speed back, I thought of how some of the faster runners I know run training runs in a sort of human pack….
…Or are human packs called something else, like herds, flocks, gaggles, swarm, school, pride…? Or do we need to invent a word? Like a ‘sapiencrew’ of humans.
Anyway, I see these fasties running in their tight little flocks and they seem to be on unit pushing each other along.
I thought about this when I ran with my friend Pepsi (yes, real name) the other day. We pushed each other along at a decent pace. We talked about this afterward and now I want to add some more people to our herd. I have done this in the past, and it does help. But it’s been a couple years. I need to get the gang back together…or maybe start a new band. I shall work on this!
How bout you? Ever run in a sapiencrew? Do you celebrate the days of May in Spanish?
