Transitory Courtesy

He was running up the sidewalk facing traffic as the SEPTA bus approached the runner from the other direction. The sound of scraping accompanied it as the bus reached the stop. A flattened box had kicked up and wedged into the back wheel well. The bus driver probably knew when he picked it up, but who knew how long it would stay back there. He wasn’t likely to get out to dislodge it. 

The bus stopped at the intersection as the runner passed. He stopped too and reached for the box which came loose with a tug. He tossed it to the side. The driver clearly saw this act of unexpected altruism because there was a gentle bip of thanks from his horn as the bus pulled away again.

The runner was already on the move as he waved his acknowledgement without bothering to turn around. And they both went on their way.

The further I got into training for health and fitness, which it was in the beginning, the better it got.

Everyone wants beautiful legs.

 --- Peter Martins, New York City Ballet

When I knew I was going to win in 2004, I still felt awful.  The last mile, I was just managing how much I was going to die.
