Cool thing that happened to me today

So I'm running the perimeter of the base for

today's run

(8.8 miles for those wondering) Approaching mile 6 and I see a line of tail lights. I'm thinking ruh-roh raggy whats going on.

I come trotting up and then realize that they've shut down the perimeter cause the boss is coming in. Shoot. Wonder how long this is going to take I'm thinking. I can see the SF (Security Forces) holding folks up, and confirms it in my mind.

Then I hear the tell tale sound of an engine on landing. Where the fins come out to direct the exhaust of the engines in front of them causing a braking manuever.

Not seconds after that the SF lets the line of cars go, steps out of the center lane and walks off the road.

Without skipping a beat I grin the biggest grin and throw double hand horns up at the SF saying "I couldn't have timed that better! Thought I was going to have to stop!"

So a shout out to my boss and thank the President of the United States for timing his flight today to coincide with my run.

Back to your regularly scheduled program.

    It is always fun when things like that happen on a run.
