Inaugural Training Run: The Presidential Run, Kew Gardens, NY

I sweat like a humidifier.

Even with the humidity at only 41%, I sweated my you-know-whats-off.

This was a nice little trek. Mile-and-a-half out. Mile-and-a-half-back. Totally different scenery today. Whereas yesterday was a run through beautiful houses, sandy beaches, and parks everywhere, today's run was one of going through a brownstone jungle of brick and concrete pre-war tenement apartments in Queens.
The journey starts going up to Kew Gardens Rd, and making a quick right down 83rd Ave. The big white building (row 1, middle) is Arnold Langer's (a friend of my fathers). Crossing Queens Blvd., I pass the Criminal Court hourse (row 1, right). Nothing but houses on Coolidge, and brownstones on Hoover. A boring run, but with all the trees, I was almost in the shade the entire time. Also there was very little traffic on these residential streets. Overall, it's a good course, for short runs on real hot, sunny days. Coolidge & Hoover. Two Presidents. Both infinitely better then GW Bush....

< - Ghost of GOOD Presidents ...(because of course, the one we have in office now (George W. Bush) is the WORST President in American History).

How dare you to criticize our commander in chief? He is the best thing that ever happened to Osama Bin Laden! Need I say more?
