A friend of mine had resisted efforts to get him to run with our jogging group until his doctor told him he had to exercise. Soon thereafter, he reluctantly joined us for our 5:30 am jogs on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
After a month of running, we decided that my friend might be hooked, especially when he said he had discovered what “runner’s euphoria” was.
“Runner’s euphoria,” he explained, “is what I feel at 5:30 am on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.”
I went to a restaurant. It was full. There was no place to sit and the wait was over thirty minutes.
I took out my cell phone, placed it to my ear, and said loudly, "Hey, get over here! She's here with someone else!"
Six couples got up and quickly left.
