07/24/2005: "a day at Shawangunks"
It was a beautiful sunny sunday and I joined my teammates for Shawangunks trail run near New Paltz. Weather was just perfect and I got burnt and pleasantly tired myself out by running through woods, by lakes and waterfalls, over the cliffs, flying down the hill. I was running with Sid Howard, Gold medalist of Masters world championships, also world-record holder, the nicest guy on earth, and of course a crazy runner. Sometimes he bursts ahead, sprinting, shouting, "I just feel like it! I just feel like it!" They sometimes he starts cracking up, having just a good time. I was running with him and said to myself, "God, I've never seen someone having SUCH runner's high. I want to have what he's having!"
