I've recently lost some weight and I think I might attempt a loop around the Park again. I know a little about running, and I'm aware I should go very slowly (probably a walk/run combination) and stretch real well, both before and after.
But, that would be a good comeback after 15 years. In 1988, on Election Day morning, I was running at Memorial Park (I did it daily back then), and along came GHWB and the secret service detail. Here it was election day and he was getting his run in!
So there was a group of men in black suits running along with Bush, or did they wear running clothes to pretend they were regular runners? Either way it sounds hilarious.
