2011-06-20 - Parking Lot Laps

~4.5 miles @ ~9 min/mi

Under the airplane-sculpture a bird with a white ring around its neck stands, cheeps, scurries aside, then returns. At 0830 the gap between lines of showers offers a humid chance to do loops on the parking lot perimeter. Another runner cruises in the opposite direction; we salute each other twice each time around. "You're gaining on me!" I tell him the first few conjunctions. In the final fastest lap I manage to match his speed, pace descending 9.8 ⇒ 8.8 ⇒ 7.7 min/mi.
