For Your Health?

The car pulled up alongside me, not quite stopping. "Are you jogging for your health?" The driver sounded somewhere between incredulous and disbelieving.

"In theory," I panted in reply. I had about 25 seconds left to travel 8 hundredths of a mile.  It didn't seem impossible.  Unlikely, maybe.

"Do you need a ride?" she asked.

"No, I'm fine." I attempted a smile.  She raised her eyebrows and pulled away.  I checked Cardio Trainer. 5 seconds to go 5 hundreths of a mile.  Yeaaaaaah I don't think so.  I plodded to a halt at 12:04 and 0.96 miles. Close!  But not quite.

So I went home to get my bike and make sure the Paperboy Quest (Expiring Soon!) hadn't expired yet. Because if I'm going to ride a bike for 20 minutes after running home as fast as I can, I want to at least get ONE quest out of it.
