I’ve come to love my outdoor runs in Delhi. Like mad dogs and Englishmen, I’m crazy for doing it – but what I see on the streets makes sweating through the early morning heat worth it. Watching the city wake up makes me feel more apart of this place. Yes, I am a spectacle as well – a lone woman running the streets spins more than a few very curious heads. I carry a stick to ward off dogs, and mace – just in case the dogs don’t fear my stick. So far, the monkeys haven’t bothered me but I hear that I’m lucky. They are temperamental and unpredictable. I rarely see other runners but on this particular day I ran into a guy from Peru, a doctor who now lives in Arizona. The first thing I asked him was this: What the hell is your governor doing?
Experimenting, he answered.
Enjoy the show!
