Maybe it was just because I had extra short shorts on today.
Or maybe I was really looking that good, that someone was inspired, with window down, to yell as they passed that "those (mine) are the best pair of legs on the North Shore!"
So it was a man in his 50's (who I know), whose son used to beat me in 5k's 10 years ago. He isn't a blood relation, so I'll take it. I definitely kicked it in with a little extra vigor.
Sometimes that's all it takes.
