Just for fun - ultra-short fiction...

You might or might know this, but I have a few other blogs that I either write or contribute to. Rather than posting on my non-running at this point, I thought I'd re-post a story I wrote for another blog.

The blog is called 55 Flash Fiction Friday. The idea (and I don't even remember who started it...) is that you write an ultra-short story in exactly 55 words. Why 55? Dunno--but it does make it interesting and challenging. So I wrote this a month or two ago for that blog, I thought I'd cross-post it here. Enjoy the story...

Five miles into it, sweat pouring down, legs pumping, heart racing.

He did this every week, whether he wanted to or not.

He was past the pain, the cramps, and into his zone.

The miles clicked past effortlessly, and he could have run forever.

"I've unleashed my inner Kenyan," he smiled to himself in triumph.

Hope y'all have a good weekend. Shout out to my buddy Rick--good luck in your marathon!

Thanks Jim! It's gonna be great! I'll post my results Sunday on my blog asap, but I don't know if that will include a race report right away or not. Have a great weekend!
