Libby on Parade
After running almost every day for a year, Libby's been feeling neglected. I decided to enter her in the Duck Creek Village Annual 4th of July Parade. We rode the thirty miles to Duck Creek (a mere warmup for Libby) and got in line. Being a village, Duck Creek knows how to throw a parade. Just bring something, anything that rolls, and decorate it in red, white and blue. They don't have a Parade Marshall that just got elected, and flush with power, runs up and yells at you, ”Move closer to the Jeep in front of you,” then frowns at your ride, his demeanor saying, 'That's the best you could do?'
