Barry trots behind a pair of sirens, Gayatri and Rebecca, during a Reverse Taper out-and-back ramble along the Capital Crescent Trail, prep for his next weekend's Disney 10k and half-marathon. He quotes from the new Emily Wilson translation of Homer's Odyssey: "Tell me about a complicated man. / Muse, tell me how he wandered and was lost ...". Patti Rich and Julie Trapp laugh at the idea that we could get lost on the linear bikepath.
Child of morning, rosy-fingered Dawn, brightens the horizon opposite a full moon that peeks between clouds. Hilly Leland Street features skeletons lounging in lawn chairs plus ghosts, cobwebs, and pumpkins. We pause for pics in front of Kelsey Montague murals in a Bethesda Row alley. Median mile split = ~12.4 minutes.http://zhurnaly.com/images/running/Bethesda_mural_z_2017-11-04b.jpg
