5K in my hometown of Septemvri, Bulgaria

I was running on the main street in my hometown of Septemvri, Bulgaria when two elderly women stopped me. I was listening to music, paused it, and put down my headphones.

  • Why are you running in the swelter? (It was 11 AM,  26 °C)

I looked at them, smiled, and said I was getting ready for a marathon.

They looked at me astonished and said, “Aa, bravo! We were wondering why anyone would run in the middle of the day. You don’t see this around here.”
