Mid-run rising sun dance party on the golf course

At 6 am I was already the happiest runner in the world, with four miles behind me, four to go

the air was cool, the streets empty around Beauchamp Point

and I came up the hill, out of the woods, and this song shuffled into my headphones

(you can click play)*

as this scene came into view

and there was no one in sight

so I danced like a fool in the middle of the road in the middle of that second fairway

I danced like David Byrne

I danced like a child at a wedding

I danced like it was my dancing that powered the sunrise and pushed that sailboat on the horizon

I danced and danced and danced and danced and then I

caught my breath, took a photo, took a drink, and ran on


* If that pesky audio player doesn't work for you, you can get your dance here:
