Gadfly uses you for discipline, for conscience.
He’s enrolled in the “Tail on the Trail” challenge sponsored by St. Luke’s.
The challenge is to walk 165 miles (the length of the Delaware and Lehigh canal) between May 1 and November 1 = 6 months.
Gadfly set himself the goal of doubling the challenge = 330 miles.
We’re 2/3’s there. 4 months down, 2 to go.
And at 256 miles he’s a bit ahead of the pace.
Now that Gadfly is on public record again, he must finish. Or for penance wear his sneakers around his neck to Council meetings.
Wave if you see him hoofin’ around town, along the river, or on the Saucon Trail.
And he’s planning to do a 1/2 marathon in November.
Now that he’s told you, he must finish that too.
Living in the public eye has its burdens.
