Tuesday (5/12/15) - 4 miles, 32:47, 8:10 pace. I went out at 2:30pm. Although, it was 88 degrees and humid, the breeze never made me feel overheated. On my second mile as I turned onto Maple Avenue, I could see some smoke in the distance. As I got closer, I saw that there were some bushes on fire next to an office building. Within minutes, the fire spread up the entire outer wall, as well as the Lexus SUV parked closest to the building. The office workers who were inside evacuated. A policeman strolled casually from the station house which just happens to be across the street. He didn't seem impressed or alarmed. I decided to keep running when some people mentioned the car might explode. At that point, the fire trucks came howling down the street. Almost a mile away, I could still smell the smoke thanks to the breeze.
Wednesday ( 5/13/15)- 5 miles, 42:08, 8:26 pace. I ran past the building again today:
Someone didn't drive home yesterday.
