Pulling an All-Nighter

Posted on September 08 2009

Is a lot of fun. Especially when it involves running, great friends, amazing views, and donuts.

It’s been almost three months since my last night run and I’m glad to have finally satisfied my cravings. It started out as a six person run, but by the time we started running it became four, and then there were three sitting in my car. This isn’t one of those nights that you can really sum up with words.

Running at night liberates us of all the stress we accumulate during the day, it frees our bodies,minds, and souls. The moon overhead gives us some visibility but even if God decided to turn off the lights we’d still know where we were going.

Thank you guys for sharing this night run with me and hopefully the next one isn’t too far away.

There are very few places as beautiful as this.

IMG_4233
Doing some philosophical thinking on why he’s so slow =D

IMG_4236
I don’t know what is about taking pictures of my shoes that I love so much.

IMG_4243

IMG_4246

IMG_4248
And people wonder why we run at night.

IMG_4249
Voon.

IMG_4258
This is when we got into the car.

The beginnings of MyBiase

IMG_4264
More MyBiase

IMG_4273
This picture is kind of blurry, but you get the point, it was early\late and very cold.

IMG_4276
The only 10 minutes during which he was quiet.

IMG_4277
Foreshadowing? I thought not.

IMG_4285
A well deserved feast.

IMG_4289
The last time he was semi-awake. I told him to drink some coffee…

IMG_4292
sigh…

IMG_4293
He slept on this bench at donut wheel for 30 minutes.

IMG_4307
Off to Priya’s

IMG_4309
Alanna’s response to my picture message: “oh. my. god. that is amazing.” I couldn’t have said it better.

IMG_4314
Yes he brought the pillow with him, wanna guess what he did with it?

IMG_4315
This. And wanna guess what DiBiase did to annoy him?

IMG_4316
This.

IMG_4319
And this.

IMG_4322
My take on Varun’s point of view.

IMG_4324
Varun’s first time was with this pillow.

IMG_4328
I don’t know what to write for this picture.

IMG_4329

IMG_4332
Apparently, Varun doesn’t understand that pillows haven’t been engineered to be hats.

IMG_4335
Ryan: “Dude, this is an epic pic!”

IMG_4339
At a loss of words again.

IMG_4342

IMG_4344
HyperBiase.

IMG_4345
Words don’t do this view justice.

IMG_4363
He finally got up.

IMG_4368
This is why.

IMG_4380
How can you not be a “camwhore” with this view?

IMG_4384
Varun’s lucky the auto shutter didn’t get the next photo in this sequence.

IMG_4392
This time Varun is at a loss of words.

IMG_4402
We were too tired to try again, so this was our “jump pic”

IMG_4406
This and the next two pictures are photographic metaphors for what should be done to the litter on Priya’s and the people that leave it there.

IMG_4407

IMG_4408
All clean.

IMG_4412

IMG_4413

IMG_4414
For Gene.

IMG_4425
Maybe I have some kind of shoe\foot fetish.

IMG_4430
I probably do.

IMG_4433
The definition of MyBiase.

IMG_4434
Only 3 know.

IMG_4436
For Lum.

IMG_4437
DiBiase: “Dude Varun, did you wake up on the wrong side of Donut Wheel or something?”

IMG_4444
Still hyper.

IMG_4446
Still tired.

IMG_4447
Very tired.

Here’s a panorama of the view from Priya’s right before the sun came up, sorry if the lighting is a bit off, a tripod would have made this perfect, also click on this picture and the other ones to get the full 10mp resolution, I only uploaded to full versions for the best pictures so just hover over them to see if they are clickable.

This night run was truly amazing, I wish Lum could have shared the laughs and the love with us and even though he wasn’t there tearing up the hills, he did put a smile on my face with this text: “You know i wanted to go-just think of yourself lucky i’ve already gone on so many with you. make it a good one for them!”

Thank you, Lum.

This is really a case of saving the best for last, so here’s the answer to the age old question; “Why do I run?”
