"hey, i just wanted to tell you i've never seen anyone happier to be running."
"oh, that's easy to explain," i said with a laugh. "i watch conan o'brien's show while i run."
"okay, okay, makes sense."
"i gotta have something to get me through, music or a show, i don't love running that much."
"ah, yeah, i feel you. stick with it. it's definitely working."
always nice to have a candid glimpse of the self you can't yourself observe. and funny to think of me ("you should smile more") being perceived as the happiest anything, let alone the happiest runner. to the extent a stranger was compelled to remark on it. coco's mojo is incontrovertible.
