120: The Sound
As he got out of his car and walked to the track, he marveled at how spectacular a day it was. Blue skies, a few wispy clouds. Warm, but not overly so. He walked onto the track and immediately broke into a slow jog to warm up. His shoes made a soft and rhythmic thud. A slight breeze created a headwind, but it felt oh so good. The overgrown brush alongside the track and the trees amongst it rustled slightly and the smell of cut grass rose up to meet him. In the center, two families played at opposite ends of the soccer field, joyful shouts. As he picked up speed, he passed two ladies walking slowly and talking about their day. White noise from the nearby road provided a backdrop over which birds chirped and the soft drone of a plane could be heard as it passed overhead. Not by him, though, his headphones shoved in his ears and loud music cranked up robbed him of one of his senses on this fine day.
