Before I could consider myself a runner instead of "some guy who runs," I needed to accomplish two things. Those things are (1) pee on somebody's lawn, and (2) drink from somebody's lawn sprinkler. It goes without saying that these would be done against the homeowners will. They say that Hopkington has the greenest lawns in the nation, or at least once a year. Well, I'm doing my part to make Minneapolis have the greenest lawns, and it felt oh so good.
Today, I accomplished my second goal, drinking out of a lawn sprinkler. I said I forgot my Fuel Belt on today's run, so I was thirsty as hell. That was my only option, wasn't it?
