When in Bremerton, run a mileMay 22nd, 2013 by Steven Gardner
One of the lesser known festivities from this past weekend’s Armed Forces Festival was a 5k/1-mile run early in the morning.
Running is something I would like to do when, say, I get more “right sized” for it. While that’s happening, and I’m at a point where I can say it is, I can do short distances, like the one-miler. That is if you call what I do “running.” I’m sure in some society the slow motion movement of one foot in front of another one is still called running, some society that doesn’t have a word for “jogging,” or “plodding.”
Nonetheless, I did it and you didn’t, so I can call it whatever I want.
If you are among the about 113 others who did do it, or the hundreds more who ran the one-miler or five-miler at Viking Fest, or the several hundred more who went running Saturday without wearing a number, I kind of apologize for writing like an Internet troll. We’ve seen a huge reduction of those since we put up the pay wall, so I thought I’d contribute.
The video is a 31-second movie of the one-mile race I ran. I shot it using the Lapse It ap on my iPhone.
And by the way, we stayed for the parade, which rocked.
