Run 47:44  6.1 mi (7:50 / mi) +66m 7:34 / mi
Cousin’s wedding Greenwich, Conn. Fuck you, Greenwich, Conn.
Went for a run down to a park. A public park. It was rainy overnight so no sense in going to woods for a mud fest, and this looked like a nice run from the hotel. Got down to the park (~3 miles) and a rent-a-cop in a windbreaker came out and told me I needed a pass to use the park. I said it was a public park. He said it was only for Greenwich residents who purchased a pass. I told him this was ridiculous. He said he’d call the police.
Not wanting to get bailed out for my cousin’s wedding, I decided to turn around. But I wish him, and the rest of Greenwich, ill. It’s one thing to require parking passes. It’s another to disallow people from a park. Disgusting. Turns out my uncle had tried to book a park in town for the pre-wedding bbq to be told something similar (you’re not from here go away) and he probably would have been the first one in line to bail me out. Or pay the $25 fine.
The run was fine, a little wet, some 60s pickups.
Then I had a jack-and-coke at the wedding so I wound up passing out from the booze in bed but then waking up from the caffeine, which toasted the entire next day. Lesson learned. Stick to G&Ts.
Also, Attackpoint keeps randomly reloading and deleting what I’ve written. Anyone else?
