All Hail the Neighborhood Association

Thursday nights, for whatever reason, most of my usual running group chooses to subject ourselves to doing hill and speed workouts led by a few eilte athletes living and training in Eugene, OR for the 2008 Olympic Trials.

Last night our workout was held at Hendricks Park, which if you don't know it, is quite the beast of an incline. About halfway through our workout as we were running through the Rhododenron Garden, a few guys from the Neighborhood Association, or rather Anal Association, charged up to us and started yelling that organized sports are not allowed in that part of the park. Of course to which we responded "we didn't know that." Shaking, he yells, "it's posted on the sign!" We of course just move a little further down the hill and complete our workout trying not to die.

I simply can't understand why some people waste their energy and time in life on complaining about such meaningless details. I have to assume these people have nothing better to do with their evenings than hassle fifteen friendly runners who are simply out to make their butt muscles just a little more defined.
