Missed Ya, Rock Star Ed
We have been having a super time Monday nights running around Zink Lake. Around 12 people ran with us tonight, and what seemed like a windy chilly evening actually turned out to be a very pleasant outing.There is something for everyone. Depending on what bridges you cross, you can get a 2 mile, a 3 mile, or a 4.4 mile loop. Plus, on occasion, you can see the scullers practicing. Tonight, the Tulsa Rowing Club was out in full force.
We ran south, crossed the pedestrian bridge, and ran north on the west bank.Sandra had intended to run 3 miles, but felt great and ran the whole 4.4 with us. Ran strong the whole way.
A nice shot of the Tulsa skyline.
But the highlight of our trip was when we passed the Tulsa Rowing Club garage. The well toned rowing ladies were muscling the kayaks off the horses and storing them away while others were inside stretching. Remembering our missing and beloved runner/friend Ed, I had to capture this up-close moment in the way only a true paparazzi can. I grabbed Bobby, Kathy, and Sandra for backup and asked the "sculler babes" for a picture. They were a little puzzled as to why a middle aged man would want their picture (I can think of several reasons) but since Kathy commandeered the camera, they obliged. Eat your heart out, Ed! Shoulda been there!
