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.
This is when we got into the car.
The beginnings of MyBiase
This picture is kind of blurry, but you get the point, it was early\late and very cold.
The only 10 minutes during which he was quiet.
Foreshadowing? I thought not.
A well deserved feast.
The last time he was semi-awake. I told him to drink some coffee…
He slept on this bench at donut wheel for 30 minutes.
Off to Priya’s
Yes he brought the pillow with him, wanna guess what he did with it?
This. And wanna guess what DiBiase did to annoy him?
Varun’s first time was with this pillow.
I don’t know what to write for this picture.
Apparently, Varun doesn’t understand that pillows haven’t been engineered to be hats.
Ryan: “Dude, this is an epic pic!”
At a loss of words again.
He finally got up.
How can you not be a “camwhore” with this view?
Varun’s lucky the auto shutter didn’t get the next photo in this sequence.
We were too tired to try again, so this was our “jump pic”
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.
Maybe I have some kind of shoe\foot fetish.
I probably do.
The definition of MyBiase.
DiBiase: “Dude Varun, did you wake up on the wrong side of Donut Wheel or something?”
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?”
