I was about to attempt to get some rest prior to my overnight work shift until I looked at the temperature for today. The temperature was in the mid forties! I had to do a double take and I literally thought to myself, damn! I shouldn’t be lying in my bed, I should be outdoors getting a run in. Living in a city like Chicago, I would be a fool to give in and not get a run in because who knows what the temperature will be tomorrow. It is spring, but we do get temperatures that are winter-like in Illinois, and Illinois is known to get snow in the spring too. I literally sprung out of my bed and put on my running attire quickly with no debate what to wear as long as it had sleeves I was wearing it along with tights. After putting on my running attire, I hopped in my car and drove off to Humboldt Park to get a short run in around the park.
While near the park, I literally thought to myself after seeing other runners running that seasoned runners are truly in sync with one another as far as what to wear. Despite it being in the forties, that does not mean that you should go out wearing just shorts and a t-shirt, no. Many runners were dressed like I, wearing longsleeve shirts or light jackets with either running tights or sweats.

During my entire run, I kept thinking only about the corona virus and this social distancing thing. I wonder how long are we going to be doing this because it seems ridiculous. I also thought to myself what if you have a partner that catches the coronavirus, what do you do? Do you divorce your partner, or do you break up with them if you’re not married? I am curious, but I wouldn’t want to be in any ones shoes that is experiencing that while we are in admist of it. What would you do?
