I had this like crazy series of unfortunate events on Saturday. I woke up to a DJ blaring Black Eyed Peas at 7am, and I remembered that the Columbus Marathon was happening on High Street super close to my house. Exhausted, I started getting ready for my day. I was supposed to be at my friend’s house at 10 to set up for a bridal shower. I was almost ready when I realized, oh my god, I left my car at my other friend’s house on the other side of German Village. So, whatever, I thought. I’ll ride my bike around the marathon over to her place. Then I realized my garage door opener was in my car, so I would have to take my bike out the back door, through the narrow walkway between the garage and the fence. Well, the walkway was blocked with a completely immovable garbage can filled with plaster (why, landlord, why?!). Frustrated, I put on sneakers and started walking. The marathon literally went all around the village. If I walked around it, it would take over an hour and I was already twenty minutes late. So there was one answer:
I had to run THROUGH the marathon.
So yeah, cutting through the marathon in two places is probably the closest I’ll ever get to running in a race and I’m okay with that. At least I got these shots of German Village in springtime while I was walking to my car.
I told you guys about those feral cats…
For comparison’s sake, check out my shots of German Village in winter here and here! Ugh, I can hardly look at those. I’m pretty sure I have PTSD from all the snow.
What’s your neighborhood like in the spring?
