Amazing! He's running on AIR--high above the sidewalk! At the SRR Winter Challenge in Somerville, MA.

At the SRR Winter Challenge in Somerville, MA (January 12, 2014)

I was running up a long hill at the Somerville Road Runners
Winter Challenge, a 4.06 mile race over the raised spine 
of that fair city, when I sensed something very...odd.

A shadow on the ground told me a runner was 
coming up quickly from behind.

But I couldn't hear a sound!

No footfalls.  No feet slapping onto the street.
Just that shadow sliding effortlessly along.

Eerie.  Swift.  Silent.

So I glanced back.

Oho!

That's why the runner's feet made no sound.

He was running on AIR!

I knew no one would believe me, 
so I snapped this photo as I ran.

(He was just behind me when I took this photo.
Moments later, he passed me--silently as ever.)

Yes, I was running as I took this photo.
Didn't stop or slow my pace.
After all--I was in a race!
