4 Things I Dodged on my 4 Mile Run

1. Two people getting handcuffed and put into cop cars on the UC Berkeley campus and not far away, a group of 9 students beating on enormous tribal drums.

2. An old man riding a skateboard like a canoe (he stood on the board and pushed off the ground with a long stick with a rubber, plunger-like end)

3. A jet of water from a hose as a lady in her front yard suddenly swung it across the sidewalk where I was running to water the flowers next to the street

4. A group of (real deal) hippie kids and their dog sitting on the sidewalk, one strumming the guitar, with a cardboard sign that said “Listen to our story”

Just another run in Berkeley.
